Bentley Continental: Evolution of an Icon

Bentley Continental- Evolution of an Icon Bentley pays homage to the 2016 Continental GT Speed and 1952 R-Type Continental in a latest flick on youtube. The flick that traces the DNA and design of the Continental variant from 1952 to present. The Bentley Continental GT Speed is heralded as the fastest production car ever made by the Crewe-based marque in present time.

The Bentley Continental GT is one of the most iconic cars on the road today. The Continental name first entered the company’s lexicon in 1952 with the R-Type Continental, arguably the world’s first Grand Tourer. With a top speed of 193 km/h (120 mph) it was the fastest four-seater in the world at the time of its launch. Many of the 208 examples produced were coachbuilt by Mulliner: a name that is still closely associated with Bentley to this day.

With just three strokes of the designer’s pen, the shape of the Continental comes to life: the striking power line, muscular rear haunches and swooping, fast roof line. These three elegant styling cues have remained a fundamental part of the Continental’s DNA over six decades.

Today’s Continental elegantly fulfils the same grand-touring brief as its forebear. With immense W12 power, a top speed of 331 km/h (206 mph) and an unsurpassed ability to cross continents in total comfort, the Continental GT Speed is a truly extraordinary car.

The Bentley Continental GT was conceived, designed and built for those who do, that rare breed of people who refuse to let a single experience pass them by. The new Continental GT sees its most significant upgrade for half a decade. It introduces a re-styled cabin and bodywork as well as re?nements to driver and passenger comfort that takes the world’s most stylish grand tourer to unparalleled new heights.

The range is made up of the even more powerful GT, the supreme GT Speed, the luxurious V8 and the agile V8 S. All available in a choice of coupé or convertible. The Bentley Continental line-up includes Continental GT3-R, Continental GT Speed/ GT Speed Convertible, Continental GT/ Convertible, Continental GT V8 S/Convertible and Continental GT V8/ Convertible.
