Bentley has finally revealed the new Continental GT a few weeks before it makes its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, and CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer is more than proud of it, describing it as the “pinnacle” of their engineering and design achievements. He continues to say that the brand defines new luxury in the automotive industry.
The English automaker focuses on combining the latest technology with classic effects as their customers demand that. For instance, they feature the 12.3-inch touchscreen that gives information about the car via a revolving James Bond-style dashboard, but even better as this one is compatible with your Apple devices with its Apple Carplay.
For those who are keen on personalizing their Continental GT, Bentley is proud to say that they have a wide array of options for you. For the exterior paint alone, you can choose from as many as 17 colours, with up to 70 hues. As for the interior, there are 8 different handcrafted designs, and 15 options for the interior trim hide. Customers can either opt for 21-inch wheels or upgrade it to 22-inches for a higher ride.
The best thing about the upgraded Continental GT is the fact that it went through a number of tests and development that can prove itself to be tough. From climate testing in polar areas to the hottest areas in America, as well as durability testing on rough roads across the world. The model has spent over a million kilometers during the tests.
These were done to ensure people that luxury cars like the Bentley Continental GT are just as durable as other cars out there, and maybe even better. We do not yet know how pricing goes yet for this new GT but that info will likely arrive very soon as it’s set to appear this September in Frankfurt.
