Some exciting transport news in UAE is that, as well as Rolls Royce announcing that the new Phantom is coming, Bentley have the all-new Continental on the way, making a hard choice between two luxury cars. Both are expected to arrive in the Gulf before the end of the year.
Bentley Continental GT
The all new, third generation Continental GT is promised to be lighter and faster. It’s also shorter, yet will have a longer wheelbase and more spacious interior than its predecessor, as well as being packed with technology.
With VW the company’s parent company, it’s no surprise that the 2018 car will use the same platform as the Porsche Panamera. There are also cross-over benefits from Bentley’s new SUV, with the Continental inheriting the 6.0-litre W12 bi-turbo engine and impressive eight-speed auto, driving an active 4WD system, from the Bentayga. The Continental will also use the same new rear anti-roll suspension from the larger vehicle.
There’s a new-look to the 2018 Continental GT too; a lower, wider stance that’s reminiscent of the EXP10 Speed 6 concept shown at the 2015 Geneva show. The new body uses composite metals to shed 85kg over the current model and it’s so stiff that if you could hang one-and-a-half Continentals on a horizontal one-metre bar, it would only drop by one degree.
The interior is a blend of new technology and the classic elements of the Bentley marque – wood, leather and chrome highlighted by sharp LED highlights across the dash and on to the doors. A new and larger navigation screen sits behind a panel which has two positions, one which matches the finish of the dashboard for a clean sweep, or another which shows three classic-style analogue dials.
