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.

The Bentley Continental GT offered here was first registered on the 4th of January 2005 and delivered by Bentley Manchester to its first owner, a Mr. P.J. Bailey of Whitmore, Staffordshire. Finished in a striking Silverlake Blue Metallic paintwork with a Cream and Blue hide interior and fastidiously serviced by its supplying dealer, he kept the car for five and a half years before selling the Bentley to a Ms. A. Burke of Sarisbury Green, Southampton. During her ownership the car was kept maintained by Bentley Hampshire before being acquired in July 2013 by Sir Anthony Jolliffe, Lord Mayor of London from 1982 to 1983. He kept the Continental GT for almost seven years and had it serviced by specialists during his ownership. The current vendor bought the Bentley in July 2020 and has had it serviced by Bentley Specialists The Beaconsfield Workshop, who have just completed a full service on the car. Only being sold due to the advancing age of the vendor, this very well looked after Continental GT has covered only 43,942 warranted miles since new and comes with a full history file and a current V5C.
