Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003 the first-generation Continental GT differed from previous incarnations due to it no longer being a coachbuilt car, however as a result the price at launch was significantly less than the Continental R (approximately half) which exposed the car to a much wider customer base. Despite the lower price, the new GT was still well received with celebrities and sports personalities alike buying in droves due to the six litre, twin-turbocharged, W12 engine with 552bhp coupled to opulent surroundings and an ultra comfortable ride. After all, this was designed to be a mile crunching continent cruiser and with that huge engine coupled to a smooth six-speed automatic gearbox distributed by the four-wheel drive system, it was equally at home in Mayfair as it was on the autobahn where it was capable of an astonishing 196mph and a 0-60 time of just 4.7 seconds. The Continental offered the most comfortable way of reaching supercar speeds and still to this day is a fabulously capable GT.
First registered on the 15th July 2004, this wonderful example of an early GT is presented in Cypress green with Savannah hide and, we are informed by our vendor, in very good condition throughout. Together with a comprehensively stamped original service book and accompanying invoices, this example has been well cared for and presented with a new MoT test certificate. Owned by the previous owner since 2017, this car can deliver you in luxury from 0-60 in under five seconds. Continental GT's are incredible value for money and combine opulence with speed like no other, this example is, without doubt, incredible value and sensibly estimated.
