PostHeaderIcon Bentley Launches Third-Generation Continental GT and It’s Gorgeous!

Bentley has already debuted its all-new Continental GT, but the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show is the first time this high-end Gran Touring machine has been seen in the metal. The 2018 Continental GT marks the third generation for the storied nameplate in modern times. It launched back in 2003 after the Volkswagen Group acquired Bentley in 1998. The second generation brought big improvements in 2013. Relatively minor changes along the way have kept the Conti from stagnating. None of those changes seem to reach the gravitas and refinement of the Conti’s latest iteration. Bentley definitely exceeded expectations.

The 2018 Continental’s exterior design takes cues from Bentley’s EXP 10 Speed 6 concept and the interior’s fixtures can be traced to the automaker’s new Bentayga SUV. But neither are cut-and-paste as the Continental carves its own twisty road through the land of luxury. Returning from the second generation is the Conti’s most formidable powerplant: the 6.0-liter W-12. It now produces a whopping 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque – an increase of 44 horses and 133 pound-feet. Why? Well, this isn’t the exact version found in the second-gen Conti, but rather, the updated 6.0-liter found in the Bentayga. An AWD system keeps power seamlessly flowing, while Bentley’s Electronic Active Roll Control continually adjusts the firmness of the anti-roll bars using 48-volt electronics. A new three-chamber air suspension further enhances the ride. Inside, the Continental boasts two massive screens and more leather and wood than a forest full of cows. There’s plenty more to ogle at, so keep reading for more details.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne Design Series by Mulliner

At this point, it’s reasonable to expect that whenever Mulliner and Bentley get together, something special is usually in the works. We’ve seen it time and time again, and now we can look forward to seeing two more Bentleys getting the full-scale Mulliner treatment. One of these models is the Bentley Mulsanne, and it’s headed to the Frankfurt Motor Show as the Mulsanne Design Series by Mulliner.

I know what some of you are thinking; another Mulsanne project by Mulliner? Does this ever end? Well, it’s unlikely that it will, but there’s no reason why it should end given the string of incredible projects undertaken by Bentley’s own personalization division. The Frankfurt-bound Mulsanne Design Series by Mulliner follows on the same path with its own set of upgrades and individualized design touches, though it is worth pointing out that as far as this particular example is concerned, there is something that’s, well, lacking. Maybe it’s the fact that we’ve all gotten used to Mulliner’s penchant for stringing along one exceptional program after another, but at some point, there will be a bump in the road, or to be more specific, something that doesn’t quite measure up to the obscenely high standards that Mulliner has created for itself. This is, in a lot of ways, one of the problems with Mulliner. Expectations always call for something exceptional, and yet, what happens when a program falls a tad short of that? Well, see for yourselves.

PostHeaderIcon Configure the Bentley Continental GT of Your Dreams

After nearly seven years on the market, the second-generation Continental GT is getting ready to enter the history books and make way for a redesigned grand tourer. Built on a new platform and with a much lighter aluminum body, the third-gen Conti GT also brings new technology and a revised drivetrain into dealerships. And as it is the case with all new Bentley products, it features new technology and a large amount of new luxury items. There’s new wood veneer, new display, and a rotating infotainment screen, just a name a few, on top of the state-of-the-art interior design and the powerful W-12 engine.

The new grand tourer has yet to make a proper auto show debut, which is scheduled to take place at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, but Bentley has already launched an online configurator for the car. There aren’t any prices available and you can’t browse through all the Mulliner options, but it has what it takes to help you create your next Continental GT. And if you can’t afford one, it’s an entertaining way to play with all the color, upholstery, and equipment options you can get in one of the most luxurious vehicles available as of 2017. Check it out below.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley’s Rotating Display in the Continental GT Will have you Feeling Like James Bond!

The third-generation Bentley Continental broke cover the other day with a brand-new design and a ton of cool features. Inspired by the cool EXP 10 Speed 6 concept on the outside and powered by a new W-12 engine that cranks out more power than most Ferrari-built V-8s and V-12s, the new Continental GT also boasts a new interior packed with a huge amount of luxury features and technology. But, while the new Koa wood veneer and the “diamond-in-diamond” upholstery are pretty impressive, it’s the Rotating Display that blew me away.

While I’m not a big fan of fancy gadgets, I must admit that the Rotating Display is one of the main reasons why I’ve fallen in love with the new Conti GT. Let’s face it, it’s the kind of feature you’d find in one of James Bond’s car, along with machine guns hidden behind the headlamps. And known James’ weakness for British cars, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the grand tourer in the next film. So why am I so excited it about this? Well, I like clean dashboards with massive wood veneers as much as I enjoy high-resolution screens. Having both was impossible until now, so it’s like a dream come true.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Bentley Continental GT Officially Unveiled

Yes, it’s as good as we were all hoping! The Speed 6-inspired 2018 Bentley Continental GT is now official and boy is it beautiful. The old GT has been around since the Stone Age, but the replacement has definitely been worth the wait. 

Slimmer lights and an overall curvier and more hunkered-down look are the main features of the new model. 2018 Bentley Continental GT has lots of fine details in its design. You have to be an aficionado to understand them all. But everyone can appreciate how good they look. The chrome strip around the sills,for instance, or the retro rear hatch. In short, the design of the 2018 Continental GT is a five-star job.

Another good news is the W12 engine has not been ditched. For use in the 2018 Bentley Continental GT the motor is revised and upgraded. It now makes 635 PS (626 bhp) and 900 Nm (664 lb.ft.). That translates to 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds) and top speed
of 333 km/h (207 mph). You get a dual-clutch, eight-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive, plus adaptive chassis with Bentley’s intelligent 48-volt Dynamic Ride System.So the new Grand Tourer is great to drive as well.

As for the interior, while the design is largely familiar, there are nice new details to keep you amused. The coolest feature is a rotating display. It houses a 12.3” touchscreen with one of the best satnavs you ever saw. There is also a 10 speakers and 650 Watts, while a Bang & Olufsen as standard. But youcan upgraded that with two better systems if you like. It just remains for Bentley to reveal the price of this bad boy. Then we would know by how much we cannot afford it!

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Unveils 2018 Continental GT

Bentley just dropped a ton of details on the new 2018 Continental GT ahead of its debut in Frankfurt next month. Now entering its third generation, the Continental GT promises high-end grand tourer speed and comfort, plus unmistakable British style. Outside, the design takes cues from the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept, with lightweight aluminum body panels and longer, lower dimensions. In back, you’ll find reshaped taillights, plus LED Matrix lighting. 21-inch wheels are standard, while 22-inchers are available. Inside is the new Bentley Rotating Display, offering both a 12.3-inch touchscreen and three analog dials. Up to four passengers get to enjoy a “diamond in diamond” design for the leather upholstery, while chrome trim and several acres of wood add extra gloss. A 10-speaker stereo comes as standard, while an 18-speaker system is an available option.

So it’s nice to sit in and look at. What about driving it? Under the muscular hoodline is a 6.0-liter W-12 engine producing 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Putting it to the ground is a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission and Active AWD system, helping it reach 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and top out at 207 mph. Larger brakes (up to 16.5 inches in front) throw the anchor, while a Dynamic Ride System enhances both handling prowess and passenger comfort as needed. The engine was also moved further back in the chassis for optimized weight distribution. Look for the 2018 Bentley Continental GT to debut next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental GT

The Bentley Continental GT has been a huge hit for Bentley and Volkswagen AG since its launch in 2003, but the problem is that the car really hasn’t changed that much over the years. Sure, the facelift brought tweaked styling, a new V-8, and reworked interior, but it still takes a keen eye to spot the differences between the first Conti and those built after 2011. It’s likely that a $200,000 grand touring Bentley coupe/convertible wasn’t a huge priority for VW coming out of a global recession, but now with high-end luxury cars back in full swing, Bentley finally unleashed the third-generation Continental GT.

Revealed ahead of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Conti GT confirms what we already knew from spy shots and the Bentayga SUV. The exterior styling is heavily based on the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept, while the interior borrows some of the features and materials seen in the SUV. Bentley also took the new 6.0-liter W-14 that it launched with the Bentayga and dropped it under the Continental’s hood with revised internals and other drivetrain components. All told, the new Continental GT is sportier, quicker, more powerful, and more luxurious than the outgoing model. But more about that in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Rolls-Royce Takes Shots At Bentley Bentayga, Essentially Calls It A Rebadged Model

The rivalry between Rolls-Royce and Bentley is real and if anybody still doesn’t see it that way, Rolls CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes’ recent comments about the Bentley Bentayga has made it abundantly clear that there’s still no love lost between the two former stablemates. Speaking with Auto News Europe about the upcoming launch of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV, or “all-terrain, high-sided vehicle” as Rolls would like everyone to call it, Mueller-Oetvoes emphasized that the Cullinan will not use “mass-manufactured body shell,” unlike a certain model that he essentially described as a “camouflaged Audi Q7.

You don’t need to be an expert in the acrimonious history between the two brands to know that Mueller-Oetvoes is referring to the Bentayga, which uses the same MLB Evo architecture that can be found underpinning the aforementioned Q7, as well as the Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus. Apparently, Mueller-Oetvoes believes that the approach of platform sharing limits what can be done on the design end of the SUV, which in turn “undermines exclusivity.” For its part, the Cullinan won’t have that problem because it will be riding on the luxury brand’s new “Architecture of Luxury,” a scalable, aluminum space frame platform that was designed specifically to accommodate Rolls-Royce models. The all-new Phantom is the first model to make use of the architecture though it also won’t be the last since the Cullinan, as well as next-gen models of the Ghost, Dawn, and Wraith, will all make use of it at some point.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Wants More One-Off Models In The Future

Just when it started to feel like we’d never run out of limited edition and one-off Bentley models, no less than the company’s own design chief Stefan Sielaff has come out saying that we should prepare ourselves for such a future. Apparently, “exploring more one-off, bespoke vehicles” is one of Sielaff’s primary goals now that he’s been named the man in charge of Bentley’s Mulliner division. In his own words, Sielaff said that he wants to “explore” more of these models, where the “only limitation is the imagination of the customer.”

Those who love them some limited-edition and one-off Bentleys should be thrilled about this declaration, in part because of how Mulliner has legitimately positioned itself as one of the best personalization divisions of any automaker in the business today. Recent releases like its collaboration with Bamford show what Mulliner is capable of, even though it has rarely ventured into the world of complete stand-alone one-off models the way brands like Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, and most notably, Lamborghini have in the past. But there’s still time to change that narrative and it appears that time has come for Bentley. We’ve seen what Mulliner can do by stamping its identity on existing Bentley models. Now we’re about to see what it’s made of when it’s given a blank slate and the opportunity to create something entirely unique from it.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition

Fresh off of announcing the Mulliner’s new Design Series for the Flying Spur, Bentley is back at it again with another special edition version of the luxury sedan. It’s called the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition and it’s essentially a dressed-up version of the sedan that features plenty of dark tints lights and black gloss brightware, among other things.

It’s become a little bit of a tradition for Bentley to offer these special edition models in quick succession, so it’s not a surprise that we’re seeing another so soon after the British automaker released a previous special edition Flying Spur with Mulliner heavily involved in it. No one’s going to confuse these new Black Edition Flying Spurs for Mulliner’s Design Series, and I suppose that’s a good thing. With so many SEs coming out of Crewe these days, being different is a good thing, even if it means getting fewer digs than others. That’s essentially what the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition is. There’s not much to go by compared to what Bentley has come up with in past months, but there are still enough new features to at least justify it getting the SE label. It’s still a Flying Spur, too, so even if it’s lacking in distinctive upgrades relative to our expectations, there’s still more than enough opulence to go around for everybody.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition-0

It is usually the top dog W12 version of the Bentley Flying Spur that gets all the special treatments, but this time they decided to show some love to the V8 S and came up with a Black Edition model which makes the luxury sedan look and feel a lot cooler. It does so through the addition a host of interior and exterior appointments. 

As the name Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition clearly suggests, the main highlights of the treatment have to do with black stuff. There are black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, dark tint and black bezels, and new wheels, plus three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel, stitched leather hide that frame the four seats’ centre panels, contrast stitching throughout, and Piano Black veneer inside the cabin. You are not, however, limited to black for the choice of exterior color.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition-00

Should these fail to satisfy your need for exclusivity, Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition can also be ordered with a number of Mulliner options, namely diamond-quilted hides in the seat and door panels, with contrast stitching for a more contemporary visual tone, and two 21” five-spoke Directional Sports wheel finishes in gloss black or dark tint. The car is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine that delivers 528 PS (521 bhp) and 680 Nm (502 lb. ft.), which propels the Flying Spur to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds), and on to a top speed of 306 km/h (190 mph).

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner

By now, you would think that Mulliner would have done just about every kind of luxury interpretation imaginable. That is at the heart of its job as Bentley’s in-house personalization division. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Mulliner turn Bentleys into works of pure art and opulence. You’d be surprised, though, how creative this group can get, and no more is that in full display than in its latest project, the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition.

Yes, Mulliner just finished another limited edition build for Bentley. Yes, it looks amazing. Yes, it takes its name from the Greek goddess of calm seas. And yes, it’s nautically-inspired, right down to the whole treatment in the exterior and interior of the convertible. It says a lot about the Continental GT Convertible Galene’s status as a decadent limited edition that even Princess Yachts, the creators of some of the most expensive yachts in the world, got involved in the project with Mulliner. The styling cues in the exterior and interior are indicative of what Princess Yachts does with its own expensive products, and you can tell by how the whole model turns out that it’s a Bentley that’s ideally suited for a specific clientele. Only 30 units of the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition will be built, too. That’s hardly a surprise considering the people behind its creation. Luxury begets luxury, and the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition is a physical embodiment of that.

Continental GT Convertible Galene-0

The latest limited edition version of the Bentley GT is inspired by luxury yachting and is pitched as the ultimate edition of this model in terms of luxuriousness and style. The Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene is built by the celebrated Mulliner division in collaboration with Princess Yachts.

Though they maintain Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene has taken inspiration from yacht design, the connection is only really seen in the choice of colors and to some extent the interior trim. That is why the car comes in Glacier White paint work and lower brightware in Sequin Blue, as well as dark blue hood and striking 21” polished Propeller Wheels.

As for the interior, it gives new meaning to extravagance making use of Linen and Portland hides with Camel hand cross stitching, the door panels are Linen, Portland and Brunel. Linen, Brunel and Camel accentuate the dashboard, centre console and armrests, whilst the steering wheel is Linen and Brunel with a Camel 12 o’clock stripe. There is also Glacier White stowage case and fascia panels as well as a unique handpainted Jaume Vilardell illustration of a super yacht alongside the Mulliner script in each car. Last but not least, Mulliner has created a new material finish – Pinstripe Walnut – which covers the boot floor.

Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene is limited to just 30 units worldwide powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 powerplant with 507 PS and 660 Nm.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne by Mansory

You’d be hard-pressed to find a tuner that has embraced the outlandish more times than Mansory. Run down its catalog of past of works and they’re all there for you to see. There are the Siracusa kits for the Ferraris, the Carbonado kits for the Lamborghinis, and while I’m at it, remember the Bentley Continental Vitesse Rose from 2009? Yikes. As colorful as Mansory’s tuning history is, we can all agree that it makes the kind of statements that very few of its peers in the tuning game are able to do. Which is why it is a bit disappointing to find out that its latest program – one for the Bentley Mulsanne – came with a headline that begins with “subtle modifications.”

The words “Mansory” and “subtle” should be mentioned in the same sentence about as often as the words “Reliant Robin” and “reliable” are. And yet, here we are, presenting a Mansory program for Bentley’s luxury limousine that doesn’t quite feel like something that the German tuner worked on its tuning laboratory. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of fancy carbon fiber bits and pieces here and there. It even has a notable power upgrade, which is rare in the aftermarket scene for a car as massive as the Mulsanne. But since this is Mansory we’re talking about, there’s a level of audacious expectation that has to be met, one that I this program wasn’t able to reach. I don’t think it’s a sign that the tuner is slowing down on the imagination aspect of the game, so it does make me wonder if this is Mansory’s way of showing a side of itself that we rarely get to see.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne Gets Mild Upgrades from Mansory and Startech

mansory-mulsanne-0

A car of Bentley Mulsanne‘s class and prestige does not really need modifications and upgrades, mainly because it’s like getting a Cartier watch and then spray painting the bezel. But for those who aren’t satisfied with the car in standard guise, there are now some mild upgrades available from some big time tuners. 

These package are offered by Mansory and Startech, and while visually they are fairly similar – after all, there is only so much you can do to this car’s unique appearance without ruining it – the Mansory one is a much more through job in that it also gets a power upgrade kit and even an interior treatment.

Mansory Bentley Mulsanne comes with carbon fiber front lip and air inlet covers as well as side skirts, a rear spoiler lip, and diffuser insert. These are complemented with a set of 10 x 22″ “M8″ rims wrapped with ultra-high-performance 285/35ZR22 tyres for the front and rear axles. Performance-wise, Mansory Mulsanne gets a boost from 512 hp to 585 hp with 1,100 Nm of torque for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.0 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h. As for the interior, you can choose brushed aluminium, carbon, burled or high-gloss piano for trims, and special floor mats.

The strictly visual Startech Bentley Mulsanne gets the some sort of cosmetic upgrades with front and rear apron modifications featuring lip spoiler, side skirts, and diffusers, but somehow it looks more serious than Mansory’s car. It is almost good enough for us to ignore the performance and interior upgrades on the former offering. Almost!

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Bentayga Plug-In Hybrid

Introduced in late 2015, the Bentayga is Bentley’s first-ever SUV. It’s also the most expensive and luxurious, factory-built SUV in the world as of 2017, as well as the quickest to 60 mph and the fastest in terms of top speed thanks to its brand-new, 600-horsepower W-12 engine. In 2016, the Bentayga also became the first Bentley to use a diesel engine, something that seemed incredible a few years back. Come 2017, and the rumors that the British firm is also working on a hybrid drivetrain for the SUV have been confirmed by a new prototype that was spotted testing in the wild.

Sporting an additional “fuel” cap, this test car was also registered with the British licensing agency as a hybrid vehicle, so there’s no doubt that Bentley is indeed stepping into the electrified territory. What’s still a mystery is the drivetrain, although I’m very positive that the electric motor is paired to a Porsche-sourced V-6 gasoline engine. There’s no word as to when it will break cover, but it’s safe to assume that Bentley’s first hybrid will show itself to the world by the end of 2017. Most likely it will happen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur Design Series by Mulliner

Ah, Bentley. The purveyor of all things automotive luxury is at it again. As if coming out with a treasure trove of special-edition and one-off spectacles isn’t enough, the British luxury brand is sprucing up the Flying Spur with a new Design Series line meant to give the luxury sedan the proper limited-edition send-off ahead of the next-generation model’s arrival. Needless to say, anything Bentley does with the words “special edition” on it comes with the involvement of Mulliner, the automaker’s very own personalization department that also happens to be responsible for some of the most incredible Bentleys we’ve seen in a while.

The new Flying Spur Design Series certainly fits in with its exclusive-packed peers, thanks in large part to an extensive list of cosmetic add-ons that injects some life back to the current-generation Flying Spur before the car makes its proper send-off. And since Mulliner is in charge of putting the Flying Spur Design Series together, it goes without saying that customers should prepare for something out of the ordinary. Exclusive colors? Yes. New wheels? Right on that too. How about a carbon-fiber and titanium cabin? On that last bit, let’s just say that we’ll leave it to Bentley and Mulliner to make that happen.

Continental 24 - 1

Celebrating their participation in the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race for the third consecutive year with three Continental GT3s, Bentley has released a new limited edition model. It’s called the Bentley Continental 24 and as you may have already guessed it is limited to 24 bespoke models for Europe.

Bentley Continental 24 is based on the sportiest member of the Continental family, the Supersports. Therefore, the limited edition packs a 700bhp W12 engine with 1000 Nm of torque which gives it a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h) and a 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds).

But what really separates this model from the “standard” Supersports is the cosmetic features inspired by the motorsport version. On the outside Bentley Continental 24 comes with Monaco Yellow over Black Crystal from Bentley Team ABT Continental GT3 race car, or you can have it in St James’ Red over Black Crystal. These are complemented with black 21” lightweight forged wheels that can be finished with yellow or red accents to match the paintwork. You also get carbon fibre door mirrors, black brake calipers and all-black exterior brightware, plus gloss carbon fibre cover for the engine.

Inside the €250,000 limited edition features race-themed, replete with fascias, door panels and individually-numbered treadplates finished in carbon fibre, diamond-quilting to all four seats is in Alcantara, and “Continental 24” inlays fitted to the fascias.

While the new Bentley Bentayga SUV is not getting much love from the brand’s traditional customer base, it is doing marvelously in new money markets . That is why they go the trouble of making models like this Bentley Bentayga Falconry to cater to those markets and keep them around. 

The Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner is an “accessory” according to the car maker for the ultimate falconry experience aimed at the wealthy desert Sheikhs who are world’s biggest falcon enthusiasts.  The Bentayga Falconry features a bespoke installation in the rear which houses all the equipment required for an enjoyable falconry expedition. It also comes with some nice features inside that add to the luxuriousness and exclusivity of the super deluxe SUV.

The main highlights of Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner include a master flight station and a refreshment case, both trimmed in natural-cork-fabric and housed inside a  movable tray that allows for easy access. Inside the master flight unit is a special Piano Black veneered drawer – with a saker falcon crest – containing bespoke storage for all the equipment required for this unique sport. Beneath this is a laser-embossed Hotspur hide stowage tray with individual compartments for a GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars and hand-crafted leather bird hoods and gauntlets. And yes, Bentley does supply those as well.

If you are not interested in falconry, this Bentayga still has some features that might take your fancy. There is Hotspur-hide-trimmed interior panels, a removable transportation perch and tether on the central armrest, and an exquisite marquetry piece on the dashboard featuring a sweeping desert scene with a soaring saker falcon made from 430 individual pieces of wood sourced from all over the world and hand-crafted over nine days. Bentley did not mention the price of this thing, but given that it will be bought by people who can spend up to a $1,000,000 on a bird, cost is not really an issue.
