•The new Continental GT, the definitive Grand Tourer, has arrived in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and soon throughout Southeast Asia
•Third generation of the peerless Continental GT takes Bentley ownership experience to the next unparalleled level

(Gold Coast, 17th – 20th September 2018)
The new Bentley Continental GT, the definitive Grand Tourer, has arrived in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and soon throughout Southeast Asia for deliveries to customers.

Sarah Simpson, Regional Director of the ÚK and Asia Pacific of Bentley Motors, said, 'The Bentley Continental GT is a model that we are immensely proud of and since in the first generation model was launched in 2003, it has become our most successful model in history.'

Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Britain, the new third-generation Bentley Continental GT combines spirited, focused performance with handcrafted luxury and cutting-edge technology, to create the finest Grand Tourer ever produced.

2019 Bentley Continental GTAt the heart of the new Continental GT sits an all-new, enhanced version of Bentley's renowned 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine, mated, for the first time, to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission, for faster, more efficient gear changes.

A new, technically advanced, adaptive chassis uses Bentley's intelligent 48-volt Dynamic Ride System to ensure a responsive ride and exceptional handling and refinement in all road conditions. The new system controls ride comfort and lateral roll, cushioning passengers from excessive movement as well as making the car feel effortlessly precise.

The muscular exterior design, created using revolutionary technology, results in a lightweight, yet stiff, body. The engine is positioned further back to improve weight distribution, resulting in driver-focused, dynamic performance.


Offering four seats and improved luggage capacity for genuine real-world usability, the new Bentley Continental GT's luxurious cabin is packed with exquisite details such as a new 'diamond in diamond' leather design. In addition, significant work has gone into harmonising the extensive portfolio of 15 colours across hides and carpets.

The interior design of the Continental GT is tailored specifically to the modern luxury customer, with unrivalled attention to detail that creates an effortless ownership experience. The cabin seamlessly integrates cutting-edge onboard technology with the finest handcrafted natural materials. The result is an exquisite, harmonised, connected and luxurious space.
