Lot details

Chassis No: SCBCE63W74C020318
MOT: November 2023

  • In current ownership since April 2008
  • Just 3 former keepers
  • Only 59,800 warranted miles
  • Comprehensive service history with a fresh service just completed
  • Described by the vendor as being in ''excellent condition all-round''

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 30th of January 2004 and delivered by Bentley Newcastle to its first owner, finished in a striking Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic paintwork with a Tan and Blue hide interior. The current owner bought the car from Bentley Hadley Green in April 2008 and kept it serviced by them until 2011. During the warranty period, the car was fitted with a new gearbox by the same dealer in 2010. From 2011 onwards the Bentley has been looked after by Bentley Specialists Phantom Motor Cars. Only being sold due to the advancing age of the vendor, this very well looked after and freshly serviced Continental GT has covered only 59,800 warranted miles since new and comes with an extensive history file including past MOTs and invoices plus a current V5C. At the time of consignment the car ran very smoothly and showed no warning lights or service messages on the dashboard. Described by the vendor as being in ‘very good’ to ‘excellent condition all-round’, this car is worthy of closer inspection by anyone looking to add a Continental GT to their garage.
