The new-gen Bentley Continental GT will also get the latest generation of chassis technology, comprising active all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, four-wheel steering, an electronic Limited Slip Differential, a 48-volt electric active anti-roll control, and new advanced dual-valve dampers. Furthermore, the cabin will get a new suite of electronic features.


The Bentley Continental GT holds extreme importance and relevance in the automaker’s modern-day success. The first generation was unveiled in 2002 and marked the rebirth of Bentley, working as a catalyst for its new-found growth. The Continental GT’s success catapulted the British luxury carmaker from selling 1,000 vehicles a year to 10,000 units within four years of the Continental GT’s launch. The second generation of the Grand Tourer arrived in 2010 with the W12 heart, while the 4.0-litre V8 engine was introduced as an option in 2012.

The four-seater grand tourer is built at the automaker’s Dream Factory in Crewe, England.
