Bentley Continental GT consumer car reviews

Bentley Continental GT 2005

5 star review

When I got my car it had on the Khan kit, which turns a lot of heads as it looks great! The car is not for driving around town as it only give its true performance on a long run. I will never go back to other make now I own a Bentley, it’s just a first class car. I have had most makes from Range Rovers to Audi rs6 and TVRs, and none of them come close to a Bentley. So if you are thinking of buying one I say go right ahead and get it, you won’t be sorry.

Bentley Continental GT Speed 2011

5 star review

I’ve recently bought my Continental Speed as a replacement for my Aston DBS and, immediately, I can say that the Bentley is the better car because you get more equipement that the DBS. Also, the Bentley is more comfortable and more luxurious than the Aston- you get a 6 speed semi automatic plus various electronic gadgets as standard! Surprisingly, the Bentley is rather good in towns and cities, providing you put the shifter into manual mode or you use the ’sport’ mode when you are starting and stopping in traffic as the Bentley’s gearbox, for some reason, tries to shift straight to top gear whenever you are in heavy traffic. As you would expect, the Continental is extremely fast when you plant your right foot on the loud pedal, you are pinned back into your seat as the twin turbos kick in and proppel you to scarily fast speeds in even scarier times. From rest, 60 mph is reached in about 4.5 seconds and 100mph comes along in about 9.5 seconds, not bad for a car that weighs 2 tonnes. The Continental is very good at fast corners too, thanks to its 4WD system which directs power to whatever wheels have the most traction. For such a big and powerful grand tourer, it is quite economical. It is possible to get

Bentley Continental GT GT Mulliner 2006

4 star review

Great car, fantastic performace, all let down by: The engineers must have left the tea boy to design the Sat Nav, no post codes, rubbish interface, slow and the tea lady must have designed the blue tooth phone system. How can Bentley spend so much on the development of a car, could then not have ask one of their mates at Audi how its done!!

Bentley Continental GT Speed 2008

5 star review

I test drove the GT Continental. A very good car car but not a great one. Then I drove the GT Speed. What a difference! The handling and acceleration show a significant improvement and the car is slightly lower on the road giving it a sportier look, particularly with the distinctive wheel trims. A GREAT CAR THAT PUTS A SMILE ON YOUR FACE!

Bentley Continental GT Mulliner 2006

4 star review

The GT has great presence, handles the road very well, is VERY comfortable and has an excellent stereo. If you spend the extra on a Mulliner specification you won’t regret it. The main thing about this car is its sheer speed - the acceleration is utterly relentless - it simply keeps going and is simply phenomenal for its weight. You have to drive it to truly understand. On the downside - heavier steering than you would imagine (because it is 4WD), not as noise proof as you would imagine (despite being double-glazed), tyre noise (because it is 4WD and has 20 inch rims), the bluetooth set up is very poor (limited to certain phones if you want to use your phone book or voice command) and the Sat Nav does not even use postcodes (it really is shockingly awful). Going back to the speed of the car, the same of it is that all that power is going to waste as there is very little opportunity to enjoy it. Oh, one more thing - you worry whenever you park it - will it will be scratched, bumped or have "extra" hand prints on it when you return? Honestly - a truly great car but I am not going to buy another one after I sell this one.

Bentley Continental GT Mulliner 2005

5 star review

Superb luxury car. Indeed a Ferrari in a Saville Row suit. I’ve owned it for 12 months and I’m always excited as soon as I sit in the car and fire the beast up. Highly recommended. What more could you ask for?

Speed - The fastest production Bentley ever; if the standard Continental GT 6-litre W12 twin turbo engine doesn’t give you enough thrills then look no further than the Bentley Continental GT Speed. Bespoke Mulliner internal features as well as the tweaked engine are a couple of ‘upgrades’ on the standard mo [...]
