Bentley Continental GT First Edition: Ultimate expression of a legendary Grand Tourer
Bentley Motors recently unveiled its exclusive First Edition of the all-new Continental GT, which is an ultimate expression of the Grand Tourer representing the pinnacle of Bentley’s craftsmanship while combining all the finest features available on the Continental GT’s Third Edition.
The Continental GT First Edition includes the unique Bentley rotating display, enabling the driver to seamlessly switch between three different fascia panels to suit the mood of the cabin. The default 12.3-inch touchscreen can be substituted with a more classically styled instrument display if preferred — one that features three analogue dials. When the engine is off, the third veneer-only face is displayed for an uninterrupted flow of wood right across the dashboard.
Powered by new 6.0 liter, twin turbocharged W12 TSi engine, the Continental GT First Edition also has Mulliner driving specification that has drilled alloy foot pedals, jewel-finish oil and filler caps, and unique 22-inch wheels available in bright paint, black, and hand polished or fully-polished finishes.
The specification is complemented by diamond-in-diamond quilt pattern on seats, door panels and rear quarter panels, all featuring a unique contrast stitch only available with the First Edition.
Other key additions to the ultimate list of standard equipment include the city specification and touring specification, with features such as park assist, pedestrian warning and traffic sign recognition. The Bentley 650 watts audio system can be upgraded with either the Bang & Olufsen system of 1500 watts, or for the true audiophile the top-of-the-range Naim audio system with 2200 watts.
