The new Bentley Continental GT

Is here. The new Bentley Continental GT. Is the kind of vehicle built to look at it, to seat in it, to drive it. Built to enjoy it. Is the same kind of vehicle like the old luxury personal coupes from Cadillac, Lincoln, Buick, Oldsmobile and Ford: Eldorado, Mark, Riviera, Toronado and Thunderbird. Is beautiful, extremely beautiful... elegant and sports at the same time. Is a dream for any car lover.

Re: The new Bentley Continental GT

Love how they handled the rear tail lamps.
Center console looks a bit busy, but the rest of the interior is excellent.

This is completely lacking the grace and elegance I expect n a Bentley. The interior looks spectacular, the exterior looks like it was designed by multiple teams who never communicated.

The Lincoln chop looks 100 times better, sad.

Re: The new Bentley Continental GT

The square grille seems out of place when every other design element on the car is rounded/oval-shaped. It looks like it was tacked on at the end.....I know it's a Bentley design trait, but I feel they could've integrated it better. I also think the front doesn't look that different than the outgoing model, to where it's almost hard to tell it's new. When I first saw thumbnail pictures of it, I thought it was a refresh/special edition model because of that.

Other than that, it looks great.

Re: The new Bentley Continental GT

Thanks @falcon lover ...also @Rick Astley (tho No smaller Lincoln than 2+2 imho)


• the quilting on the door & upper seatback makes me think of TOILETPAPER

• remember that Donkerwonker designer who got pissed at the Conti - imho THIS front is why

Re: The new Bentley Continental GT

Looks good, kinda evolutionary until you notice the front wheels have been pushed 135mm (5.3 inches) forward. That small change along with a lower hood and pointed tail makes a difference.
