Experience effortless long-distance driving in the 2024 Bentley Continental GT, where every journey feels like a short trip across town.

Under the hood, choose between a powerful twin-turbocharged V-8 or W-12 engine, ensuring ample power and smooth handling. The Continental GT excels in both sporty cornering and comfortable cruising, effortlessly absorbing road imperfections. Customization options abound through the Mulliner coachbuilding division, but even standard models exude elegance with premium materials and top-tier features. Indulge in the ultimate luxury driving experience with the Bentley Continental GT.


What has Changed for 2024?


The 2024 Bentley Continental GT receives several styling updates, including new 22-inch wheel options for the Azure trim and dark gray exterior detailing on the Speed model. Additionally, there's a new optional dark-tinted finish for the aluminum grille trim. Inside, the Azure models feature lofted quilting on the seats and door panels, enhancing the luxury feel. Plus, all models now come with plush wool floor mats atop carpeting made from recycled nylon. A new trim level, the A trim, is introduced just below the Azure, incorporating some of the Azure's styling elements, such as the distinctive waterfall grille. At the pinnacle of the lineup is the Speed Edition 12 variant, available in both coupe and convertible forms, which will be produced in limited numbers to commemorate the final run of Bentley's W-12 engine, set to be discontinued after 2024.



2024 Bentley Continental GT: Engine and Performance


The updated V-8 and W-12 engines in the 2024 Bentley Continental GT deliver muscle-car levels of performance. In our tests, the 4.0-liter V-8, producing 542 horsepower, propelled the 4926-pound coupe to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. The more powerful 6.0-liter W-12 engine generates 626 horsepower in non-Speed models, achieving 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. In the Speed model, this engine is tuned to 650 horsepower, with an estimated 0-60 mph time of 3.1 seconds. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that ensures quick and smooth shifts. Customers can choose either engine for the coupe or convertible, and all Continental GTs come standard with an all-wheel-drive system, providing confident power delivery. Notably, during a 0-to-150-to-0 speed test, the Bentley Continental GT Speed reached its top speed faster than a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, though its heavier weight resulted in a longer stopping distance.


2024 Bentley Continental GT: Interior and Comfort


How's the Interior? As expected from Bentley, the 2024 Continental GT boasts a luxurious cabin adorned with sumptuous, aromatic leather and fine wood veneers. Nearly every aspect of the Continental GT is customizable, offering a bespoke experience for those willing to invest. Bentley's meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout, with features such as expertly knurled control knobs and double-stitched diamond-pattern seat trim revealing new delights each time you drive. While the Continental GT technically accommodates four passengers, the rear seats are best reserved for shorter trips due to limited leg- and headroom. During our testing, we managed to fit five carry-on suitcases in the trunk, providing ample space for a weekend getaway with your favorite travel companion.

2024 Bentley Continental GT: Connectivity


How's the Tech? The 2024 Bentley Continental GT features a striking 12.3-inch infotainment display at the center of the dashboard. This display is part of a unique, three-sided rotating unit that also includes a panel with three analog gauges showing exterior air temperature, time, and compass heading, along with a third side that seamlessly blends with the instrument-panel trim. Standard tech includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a digital gauge display, allowing drivers to control most functions via the steering wheel. For audio enthusiasts, the Continental GT offers two optional sound systems: a premium Bang & Olufsen setup and an extraordinary Naim system.

Which one to Purchase?


We prefer the Continental GT coupe and recommend sticking with the standard twin-turbo V-8 engine. Bentley's V-8 is a finely polished gem, offering a near-identical real-world performance to the W-12, despite having less peak horsepower. The W-12's extra power only becomes noticeable at very high speeds. While the convertible offers the joy of open-air driving, we favor the coupe for its elegantly arching roofline, which seamlessly enhances the car's overall style, making it truly irresistible.
