The Bentley Continental GT was the first car released by Volkswagen AG after their acquisition of the company in 1998. It 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. The Continental GT is equipped with a 6.0 litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine and produces 552bhp at 6,100rpm and capable of travelling from 0-62mph in an impressive 4.8 seconds. Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive is standard.
Originally registered on 15th May 2006, this fabulous Bentley is finished in the delightful colour combination of Sapphire Blue with Nautic Blue interior. The car has covered only 1,050 miles in its 15 year life span. The car has a very good service history to confirm the exceptionally low mileage and she was last serviced on 21st January 2021, new tyres were fitted at the same time due to their age, new batteries were also fitted at the same time. Open the door on this Bentley and the unmarked interior still smells like new. Sit in the drivers’ seat and the beauty of the cockpit area is immediately apparent, lots of leather and walnut combined with great ergonomics. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate valid until 21st January 2022, the original service books and two sets of keys. Costing in excess of £115,000 when purchased originally and with only one previous keeper, this Bentley Continental GT can only be described as being ‘unmarked and in as new condition’.
