Bentley Continental GT: Prices released ahead of Paris Motor Show

Bentley Continental GT

Bentley has released the prices for the 2001 Bentley Continental GT ahead of the Paris Motor Show.

Bentley has announced today that pricing of its latest Continental GT will start at $189,900 (excluding delivery).

For the money, customers will be able to benefit from a more powerful and flex-fuel (E85) capable 6.0-liter W-12 engine–567 horsepower and 516 pound-foot is standard. Note that a more efficient V-8 engine will be up for order from late 2011. All-wheel drive is also standard, with torque bias shifted for 40 percent front and 60 percent rear, a more sporting orientation than the original Conti’s 50/50 split. Gearshifts are handled by a Quickshift unit that now allows double downshifts. The 0-60 mph sprint takes just 4.4 seconds while top speed comes in at 198 mph.
