Today Bentley announced the third generation of their Continental GT with design refinements, technology upgrades and a lot more power. The 2019 model is unmistakably an evolution of the previous generation, with a low and wide stance accentuated by voluptuous hips. A more linear slope from the roof to the rear and sleeker taillights create a more contemporary feel, as does the flush and fluid nose of the car. Under the hood is an enhanced version of the brand’s six-liter W12 engine that hurtles the sophisticated tourer from zero to 60 in just 3.6 seconds.
Our favorite upgrades are the technical elements—the main 12.3-inch touchscreen houses the latest information and entertainment features, but rotates out of view to reveal simple analog dials for more refined, lo-fi moments; it even rotates to a third face which simply matches the veneer for a totally sleek dash. Stay tuned for more details once we have a chance to get hands on with and drive the new Continental GT.
