2019 Bentley Continental GT Review; Gentleman With Sporty Soul
According to its creators, the 2019 Bentley Continental GT is the best GT in the world. Of course, we would like to make a review on this.
From the understatement that a British gentleman typically characterizes, Cameron Paterson has nothing to notice. “The new Continental is the best GT in the world,” said Mr. Paterson before we go on a path with the new supercar. He is responsible for the test and Development department at Bentley and his claims are not modest. So we are very curious how the Brit with German passport actually drives.
Fully anticipated and respectfully I approach the 2019 Bentley Continental GT. It looks low, wide, muscular and stylish. The engine comes growling at temperature. A number of things can be seen directly when we look at the new Bentley. For example, the fronts is placed further forward, which allows a longer bonnet and a longer front side. The classic face with gauze grille and four round headlights is known to us. The elegantly descending roofline goes over into a muscular looking backside with a self-assured Bentley logo. That has also undergone a new design. All in all, it is a typical Bentley. It is a logical development of the design of the first two generations, with an extra dose of dynamism.
2019 Bentley Continental Gt Interior
When we get in, we are again impressed. It is an interesting combination of traditional luxury with Bauhausavantgarde. Of course, the interior is finished with the chic wood types and the high-quality leather you expect in a Bentley. New is the full digital instrumentation and the Rotating Display of the multimedia and navigation system, which turns on its own axis when you turn on a la James Bond. You have to pay for it, but most of the Continental buyers will undoubtedly do that. What a fantastic gadget! That the display originally originates from the Porsche Panamera may not print the fun. The interior looks no less beautiful. Everything is perfectly finished and the materials are of top quality. The combination of tradition and modern technology has succeeded in excellent.
2019 Bentley Continental GT Speed
Moreover, the 2019 Bentley Continental GT is not a car that should only show its appearance. He rides phenomenally and knows how to make expectations. The 635 hp strong W12 delivers a torque of 900 Nm at 1,350 rpm per minute and makes an impression in every sense. For example, at cruising speeds, he keeps himself neatly in the background and he in audibles his work. When you handle the throttle with policy, the engine turns exemplary. At higher revs, on the other hand, you get an insane push in the back, accompanied by an impressive growl.
That his air base (the struts are also of the Panamera) is very comfortable to work and that the steering system informs you in a particularly pleasant manner about the state of the road without being nervous, we have already observed on the Provincial roads in Wales. Meanwhile, we arrived in northwestern Wales, to be precise on the small but fine circuit in Anglesey. Suddenly we feel in a totally different car to sit. Does this Bentley really weigh 2,244 pounds? He offers a perfect grip, the understeer that occurred with his predecessor, shines through absence, and of tilting and fading is not the case either.
Is It also the best GT in the world? In any case, we would not be able to call it better and not one that is more versatile, more deft and harmonious. Mr. Paterson, you are quite right. Understatement is not necessary in this case.
