A car Bentley Continental GT is this 2-door compartment of Gran Turismo class the first class, with landing combination 2+2. For basis at creation of model of Continental GT was taken Bentley Continental R and Continental T, the base of that was worked out by a company Rolls-Royce. Development of compartment the group of designers engaged in under the direction of Dirk van Breukelen in a studio in city Crew, where the plant of Bentley is also located.
A task to create a new and at the same time knowable look was fully realized. Classic massive forehand and no less weighty back, long baskets are made by a 4800 mm (however the shortest model is in family), and all this splendor weighs more than two tons. The compartment of Bentley Continental GT was fully Â«drawnÂ» on a computer.
Thus is a record short space. Just four months - from August to December, 1999 - it may need to the creative group on creation of character of this Bentley. Group is admittedly worked out well. In general, all the juices that only she can make the most of themselves. And here's what I really liked to hide this fact will not.
Under a hood Bentley Continental GT is W- vivid 12-cylinder engine with two turbochargers and intercooler power of 560 hp... He was borrowed at German luxury sedans Audi A8 and Volkswagen Phaeton. At a compartment in truth sporting disposition: for an acceleration to 100 km/h sports car is required less than 5 seconds, and high speed of machine exceeds 300 km/h. Stocked tractions felt even on speed over 200 km/h
Continental GT is equipped air suspension with a few stages of regulation inflexibilities that allow to be her and comfortable, and on sporting hard. A hover gap is too changeable. At a standard in a 120 mm of compartment on speed automatically a to 100 mm reduces him, but if required (for example, in a snowdrift), by means of the special button a hover gap can be increased to 150 mm.
In 2011 Continental GT revived. A public debut took place on Parisian motor-show. A car is finished off so that to provide the yet greater level of dynamics and quality of ride. At creation of Continental GT 2011 the designers of Bentley succeeded to connect the spirit of cult models of Bentley Continental past years with front-rank technologies.
At the end of 2011 Continental GT got another engine - span-new, four with a capacity of one the L. and eight cylinder power of 507 hp, more than 40 esuriently, what his 12-cylinder Â«colleagueÂ».
