Bentley will officially be launching the all-new third generation Continental GT in India on 24th March, 2018. The third generation of the popular Bentley coupe is known to be inspired from the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept car and was launched globally in 2017. The car gets updated external aesthetic to the cabin detailing and even trunk capacity.
Even though the car’s exterior lines are going to capture the most attention — it is the cleanest, clearest interpretation of a modern GT car ever to roll out of the company’s Crewe production plant.
The 6-litre W12 engine under the sloping hood is revamped. It now outputs 626bhp and 900Nm of torque which means 0-100km/h time of 3.7 seconds and a 207mph (333km/h) top speed. The powerplant, mated for the first time to an 8-speed, paddle-operated dual clutch transmission, has also been moved further back from the front axle for better weight distribution and therefore handling.
For the cockpit, the company has managed to add every conceivable modern digital and active safety convenience, including a digital display housed within the driver’s dashboard binnacle which is of such a high resolution that its virtual dials look like real three-dimensional objects. However, each of these cutting-edge features has been implemented in a traditional, handcrafted way to offer a perfect balance of old and new.
The countdown begins and we tick-tock is waiting for 24th March, 2018. Can’t wait to get it unveiled.
