Introduced at the 2003 Geneva Salon, the Continental GT was the most technologically advanced Bentley in generations. Powered by the marque's first all-new engine since 1959, its twin-turbocharged 5998cc W12 was allied to six-speed ZF Tiptronic transmission. With a quoted 552bhp and 479lbft of torque on tap plus Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive, the 2+2-seater GT was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds and 198mph. A deft blend of muscularity and elegance, the two-door coupe's lines were the work of Dirk Van Braekel. Equipped with sophisticated independent suspension and ventilated ABS disc brakes all-round, the Continental GT proved an accomplished transcontinental express.
Finished in Cypress Green with Savannah / Spruce leather interior, this example is described as being in "very good" condition with regards to its paintwork, bodywork, engine, interior, electrics and transmission. Registering some 83,500 miles it has been serviced by Bentley eight times and then by Bentley specialists 4 times, with the last carried out on 12 August this year. Well-appointed with walnut trim, the car is offered with Swansea V5C and current MoT to August 2017.
