Lot 131 - 2004 Bentley Continental GT
|Odometer reading||92,000 miles|
|Estimate||£15,000 - £20,000|
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. The Continental GT is equipped with a six litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine and produces 552bhp at 6,100rpm, and is capable of travelling from 0-62mph in an impressive 4.8 seconds. Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive is standard.
Originally registered on the 21st 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 having been maintained by the main dealer network within the last four years. This example has been well cared for and is presented with an MoT test certificate until May 2023, the vendor stating the six litre W12 drives fabulously. Sitting on four matching Pirelli tyres with unmarked original Bentley alloys 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.
