Bentley has officially revealed the new Bentley Continental GTC. Have a look!
Anyone familiar with the second-generation Continental GT, launched a year ago, will recognise the latest GTC’s sharper styling lines, more upright grille and striking LED headlamps.
That message should be carried through into the driving experience. The new GTC is 70kg lighter than its predecessor, has a 40mm wider track, retuned steering for sharper responses and sportier suspension settings.
The all-wheel drive system now has a 40/60 split front to rear, changed from 50/50 in order to dial out some understeer and allow a degree of steering on the throttle should the mood take you.
The 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 now produces 567bhp (up from 552bhp), while torque is up by 37lb ft to 516lb ft and is coupled to a new six-speed transmission – dubbed ‘Quickshift’ – which halves gearchange times to 200 milliseconds and allows double downshifts. The 0-60mph sprint takes 4.5sec, 0-100mph is dispatched in 10.9sec and the top speed is 195mph.
