Customers won’t be disappointed with a high-class 2016 Bentley Continental GT interior, but we already got used to amazing cabins made by Bentley.
New modern instrument cluster features new graphics, dials and new metallic elements. Part of standard interior equipment is a new sports steering wheel with large shift paddles, while its gear shifter is surrounded in plastic instead of aluminum and center cluster is illuminated with LEDs. Overall interior is very elegant and offers a lot of style.
The 2016 Bentley Continental GT exterior comes with minor changes and that is a good thing. These changes include redesigned front bumper which now features winged motif and thanks to redesigned trunk lid drag coefficient is improved. Around back LED taillights and dual chrome exhaust come standard. We are very happy to see that the new Continental GT kept its spirit and very nice body lines.
Three new exterior colors are added Jetsttram (bright metallic blue), Marlin (rich metallic blue) and Camel (soft golden tone). Also, a choice between 20 and 21 inch wheels (painted or with machined finish) is available too.
“The luxury of spontaneity – the freedom to take to the open road on your own terms. No other car on the road today exempliﬁes the spirit of life’s grand tour more than the Bentley Continental GT.” are the words of the manufacturer and so far, everyone will agree.
