New Bentley Continental GT revealed

Crewe (England), 30. August 2017

Even before the official debut at the Frankfurt motor show (14. - 24. September 2017) has announced Bentley, the Details of his new flagship, the third Generation of the Continental GT. In the mood for some impressive Numbers? Please be nice: The revised 6.0-Liter W12, the new Conti GT is now close to 635 HP and 900 Newton meters. The car accelerates in 3.7 seconds from 0-100 km/h and reaches a top speed of 333 km/h. but The most Important thing: Allegedly, tens of square meters of wood are in each car.

Technically the front

The reign, that sounds like Abundance. But the Continental GT's in 2018 not only oozes in luxury, he is also technically very very far to the front. The base is divided, in principle, with the Porsche Panamera. Very closely related to the transmission, the new eight-speed dual-clutch, which is a surge of the vast Power now via a newly developed, fully variable all-wheel drive system to the wheels sends. A shock to the old Bentley Bunny is likely to be that now in Crewe on an electro-mechanical steering. The hydraulic Bentley's steering is a delight, one can only hope that it stays that way. Driving dynamics: The new Conti has a 48-Volt on-Board network. The adaptive air suspension can do wonderful things. Roll and Wankneigungen virtually eliminate, for example. To see this is already the Bentley Bentayga and the Audi SQ7. The Conti with its extended wheelbase and more rear-mounted engine should make all of the curve most greedy of Bentley outside of Le Mans.

80 pounds lighter

Especially because he is now mostly made of aluminum, which makes its stately body 80 pounds lighter than before. The said body is the same as the old Conti's, although still quite clearly, but somehow sharper, more reduced, less h├╝ftspeckig. Just the front (not just lights) to recognize the influences of the wonderful study of the EXP 10 Speed 6.

The interior is simply WOW

We come to the interior and what you would expect in a Bentley other than a massive WOW? The British take the Audi Virtual Cockpit in all its functional goodness, treat it to the top but your very own opulent spell. In addition, the dashboard has a pretty fantastic Trick up its sleeve: you Should have enough from the 12.3-inch Panamera-Style Touchscreen, then you take him. He rotated electrically, and a Trio of exposes very chic temperature instruments. Also not your thing? Just again rotate, and the Toblerone panel is transformed into an elegant, perfectly refitted decor, nothing bothers her spoiled eye.

Individualization of the old school

And then there's the normal Bentley-madness. The color range includes up to 70 tones, there are 15 carpet-options, eight different hand-crafted designs and 15 different leather. 21-inchers are Standard, but screwing them is also 22-inch wheels, if you like it a little more glamorous. Assistance systems-technically, the new Continental GT is also now on a very ordinary level: Adaptive cruise control, active lane keeping assist, 360 degree camera, night vision camera. The attention to Detail has worked for Bentley before better than anywhere else, and now the technology seems to finally be able to keep up. To the prices expressed in Crewe. Until the Start of the IAA, the is likely to have changed.(sw)
