Continental GTC

Additional Info

  • It says, cool, old money with a lot of pedigree.

It’s a great car, the GTC. Well sorted, nice hood, good looking.

  • Comfort

    Really is the place to be if you want to lounge while you cruise. The old-school opulence is still in plenty of evidence even in this most modern of Bentley products, even if getting the headrests embroidered with your initials is the height of bad taste. No, it’s not got the same stately-home glam and genteel waft of the Arnage, but you really can kick back and relax in a GTC. And enjoy the people casting rather obvious glances your way. They’ll either love you or hate you, that’s for sure.

  • Performance

    As you’d expect from that rather wonderful 552bhp 6.0-litre W12, hacking the roof off doesn’t exactly blunt the performance too much. Let’s face it 0-100 kmph in 4.8seconds and a top end of 314 kmph should be enough for most. If not, just add some of the "Speed" options.

  • Cool

    It says, cool, old money with a lot of pedigree. We aren't big fans of the design, but we can't deny its attention-grabbing abilities.

  • Quality

    Superlative build quality from the Bentley boys. Other luxury manufacturers should pay homage.

  • Handling

    The security of four-wheel drive means that while the small-ish Benters (everything is relative) isn’t the last word in driving satisfaction, you can’t really go wrong. There’s grip to spare, mass is kept under a tight leash and the GTC still manages to weave a glamour that makes it feel a bit smaller than it actually is. Encouraging to drive rather than out-and-out brilliant.

  • Practicality

    Big-ish boot, seating for four quite happily.

  • Running costs

    If you really have to ask, then sorry Sir. Don’t be daft. Pick the max if everything, then apply it here.
