This new model looks fantastic.

-8 Speed DCT supplied by ZF (same as in the Porsche Panamera)






I mean the old one is amazing.....but this new gen model takes it all the way

Fantastic job, Bentley

I was going to say the old one was awesome already. This is a really nice update. Maybe I’ll be able to afford one one day.

I like the smoother lines, and softer edges. It seems a little squatter, I hope I don't get criticized here but it sort of reminds me of the Z4MC......just a little.

Head on view is weird and almost too simple, but the rest is gorgeous and a huge improvement over the kinda lumpy, bulky previous one.

Yup indeed.........and this new Continental GT sets the stage on how Bentley has evolved since it's humble beginnings in the early 20th century.

From it's humble beginnings to the famous Bentley Boys of the 1920s that were known for their passion for their high-end passion for their cars as they bring them to race tracks and auto events like Le Mans and whatnot.

The new Continental GT sets the stage for the next phase of Bentley as they will soon celebrate their 100th year anniversary on January 2019.

Stunning. That interior is a knockout.

I've driven several different iterations of the previous gens, and I've always enjoyed these.

If I were spending a lot of dough on hi-po lux DD or cross country car, this is the only car that'd be on my list.

Nice, can't wait to see the detailed engine specs.
Meh, it does look a lot like the Continental GT II (coupe facelift from 2015) - at least in the design of the front section:

It's great to see the cabin design freshened up - love the light/dark leather combination plus the dashboard revision.
Looking up at the specs i see that the new one is more "fuel-efficient" if a Bentley could be called so : the new Continental GT III's urban 17.7l /100 km against the Continental GT II solid 24.3l/100 km..
Impressive!
