  • Bentley Continental GT V8

    Bentley Continental GT buyers can now have their opulent coupe with four fewer cylinders. On Monday, the British luxury automaker revealed the new Continental GT V8 and GT Convertible V8, which gives potential owners a (relatively) more fuel-efficient option compared to the burly 6.0-liter V-12 engine. In this case, Bentley pegs the V-8 as the mile-chewing, grand-touring option for the Continental GT and drivers may chew up to 500 miles on a tank. A stop/start system conserves fuel at stops, and the engine can deactivate four cylinders when the full potential of the V-8 isn't required...

    Bentley brings race-inspired Continental GT to Geneva auto show

    Bentley celebrates its centennial in 2019 (the actual date is July 10), and the automaker is clearly excited.

  • 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible
    First drive review: 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible offers a break from the digital world

    “Digital detox.” That’s what Bentley design director Stefan Sielaff promises in the 2020 Continental GT Convertible, and the opportunity sounds appealing. We are so inescapably immersed in the digital, the synthetic, and the artificial that a retreat to reality and authenticity...

  • 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible, 2018 LA Auto Show
    The Bentley GT Convertible's best feature is one we'll hardly see

    Simon Blake is a disappearing artist. His most significant contribution to the new Bentley Continental GT Convertible is that it goes away in less than 20 seconds. That’s hardly enough time to consider Blake’s—and Bentley’s—achievements with the power-folding cloth...

    Bentley Continental GT Convertible brings speed and optional tweed

    Bentley took the wraps off of its redesigned Continental GT Convertible on Monday, ahead of the car's world debut on Wednesday at the 2018 Los Angeles auto show.

    2019 Bentley Continental GT first drive review: The stuff of dreams

    The day begins in a Sequin Blue 2019 Bentley Continental GT at the exclusive Kitzbuhel Country Club in the Tyrolean region of Austria. Set against verdant rolling hills and tooling through storybook villages, it would be easy to think one is lost in a fairy tale. This car’s cabin is outfitted...

  • 2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    Bentley revealed its redesigned Continental GT at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show and today we have new photos of a prototype for the open-top version, the redesigned Continental GT Convertible. The lack of camouflage gear suggests the reveal is coming up soon. We expect the car to go on sale later this year as a 2019 model. Coming as no surprise, the design is pretty much the same as the coupe but differs thanks to its convertible top. A Continental GT coupe can be seen in some of the shots, providing a good contrast of the two designs. Underneath the pretty sheet metal is the Volkswagen...

    2018 Bentley Continental GT spy shots and video

    Bentley’s Continental GT is now one of the oldest models in production, with the original coupe having first appeared on the scene as far back as the 2003 Geneva auto show. Yes, the vehicle has undergone numerous updates since then but the basic styling and underlying platform have continued...

  • Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner

    If you're an avid boater, you long for calm seas. You might even go so far as to pray to the goddess Galene, who is the Greek mythological goddess of calm seas. It makes sense then that Bentley would want to name a special edition car after her, when it's a car that is inspired by the world of luxury yachts. This is one of a final handful of special versions of the Bentley Continental GT to be produced before the new version arrives in 2018. The Bentley Continental GT convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner is, besides a long jumble of words, a luxuriously appointed limited-edition droptop...

    The Geneva Motor Show is nearly here, which means you're about to be flooded with a sea of supremely powerful and luxurious machines. That's a good thing, of course, because it means we get to ogle British-born rocketships from the likes of Bentley. A case in point is the new Continental...

  • Bentley Continental takes on a Tram in Zurich
    Bentley Continental GT crashes into tram in Zurich, wins

    The heavyweight bout between a tram and a Bentley Continental GT took place in Zurich, Switzerland. The winner, by derailment, was the Bentley. It used all of the torque at its disposal to ram into the slow-moving tram and knock it right off its own rails. This is a clear victory for the Bentley...

  • Someone turned a Toyota Supra into a replica Bentley GT3 R

    Who can explain the heart of man? Specifically, who can explain the heart of a man that would, for some unfathomable reason, take a 1992 Toyota Supra and turn it into a replica of a Bentley Continental GT3-R? Our heads are spinning with questions. We weep for the poor Supra under that excessive skin. Our hands are up in the classically frustrated display of, "Why?" A right-hand-drive Supra was procured for this faux Bentley. Thankfully we're not dealing with a rebodied Supra twin-turbo; instead, we have the naturally-aspirated variant and it's backed up with an automatic gearbox. It's not the...

    There may be a new Bentley Continental GT waiting in the wings but it could be several years until the range-topping variant, the GT Speed, is replaced. Fortunately, Bentley is giving us more reasons to lust over the current GT Speed, namely more power and speed. There’s also a Black Edition...

    2016 Bentley Continental GT Speed first drive review

    Before the Internet became the refuge of the world's trolls, Norway was their spiritual home. We contend they're mythical creatures, but lots of Norwegians to this day believe trolls really exist. Spooky, Blair Witch-style trolls, if you take YouTube at face value. And why wouldn't you? Rich in...
