Sporty profile

The new Bentley Continental GT has a slightly longer profile since the front wheels have been moved 13.5 cm forward, which results in an extended bonnet and lowered nose.

Super Formed technology

Inspired by the Spartan Executive aircraft with smooth curves contrasted by sharp lines, the New Continental GT is the first production car to have its entire body side made from 'Super Formed’ technology, an aerospace technique that heats aluminium up to 500 degrees Celsius.

Faceted headlamps

The new Continental GT’s headlamps and taillights are inspired by perfectly cut crystal glass and reflect light like gemstones.

Diamond quilting

The new 'diamond in diamond' quilt pattern took 18 months to develop and optimise, resulting in an extremely soft touch.

High-quality interiors

The interior uses the highest quality materials—from natural leathers to rare sustainably sourced veneers—including Bentley’s newest called Koa and a new technical finish called Côtes de Genève, a technique used in Swiss watches to give it a 3D or more tactile finish.

Bentley's largest ever touchscreen 

Once the engine is started, the veneer glides forward to reveal Bentley's largest ever touchscreen yet, a 12.3" retina-display monitor.

Traditional elements

The third side of the display takes things analog: a compass, chronograph and outside temperature.
