|Odometer reading||78,800 miles|
|Estimate||£26,000 - £30,000|
Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003, the Bentley Continental GT differed significantly from the previous Continental R & T models in terms of its concept: although much of the car is hand assembled, it is a mass-produced car made in significantly larger numbers. It is not a coachbuilt car and, as a result, the price at launch was significantly less than the Continental R (approximately half) this immediately exposed the car to a much wider and new customer base as a more affordable car. Equipped with a six litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine, the Continental GT gave an output of 552bhp. This output was fed through a six-speed automatic box from an Audi A8 and distributed by the Quattro four-wheel drive system. With a 0-60 time of just 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph, the Continental offered the most comfortable way of reaching supercar speeds.
The example on offer today benefits from a factory Super Sport kit and is presented in Beluga Black with black leather trim, being a Mulliner the seats have diamond stitching on them. Recently having had a £2,200 service including new brakes, she has also recently had a set of tyres.
