Lot 311 - 2009 Bentley Continental GTC Speed
|Odometer reading||39,800 miles|
|Estimate||£48,000 - £54,000|
The Bentley Continental GT was the first car released by Volkswagen AG after their acquisition of the company in 1998 and was unveiled at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show, followed by Le Mans, Goodwood Festival of Speed and the annual Bentley Drivers Club meeting at Silverstone. The car differed significantly from the previous Continental R & T models in terms of its concept; although much of the car is hand-assembled, this Bentley is made in significantly larger numbers than previously. As a result, the price at launch was substantially less than the Continental R, thus exposing the car to a much wider and new customer base as a more affordable car. A Continental GTC is equipped with a 6.0 litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine and produces 603bhp with an impressive top speed of 202mph. Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive is standard.
Originally registered on 10th July 2009, this Bentley GTC Speed is in exceedingly good condition and comes with a full Bentley main dealer service history, the last service carried out five months ago. Finished in the great colour combination of black exterior and ebony black leather interior with piano black veneers and matching black hood, the car is fitted with Sat Nav and TV power heated seats, soft close doors and power boot lid; it is a delight to drive with the hood up or down. With a reputation for building stylish, quality cars it is fair to say Bentley got it right when the GTC Speed was launched. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this is the ultimate ‘use everyday go anywhere vehicle’.
