Lot 258 - 2004 Bentley Continental GT
|Odometer reading||36,854 miles|
|Estimate||£15,000 - £19,000|
|Result||Sold - £21,840|
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.
This very nice example is presented in Sapphire Blue with dark tan leather interior and has covered a mere 36,854 miles of which 10,000 miles were covered over the last ten years! The car is adorned with the usual refinements one would expect with such prestigious models, burr walnut in abundance, electric windows, satellite navigation, electric seats etc. Its powerful German engineered 6.0 litre engine is smooth and delivers its power with ease for great touring or more swifter driving in country roads. The car comes with a V5 registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate which expires on 17th January 2022.
