2012 Bentley Continental GT Review

(0 Stars)  There's more than one way to have a two-door Bentley.

Overview
The all-new Continental GT coupe that went on sale in spring 2011 is joined for 2012 by the Continental GTC convertible, which shares its striking new sheetmetal, LED running lamps, and much-improved navigation system. The first-generation Continental, for its part, sticks around in the form of two special-edition, high-performance models: the $285,598 Supersports convertible and the $297,495 Supersports convertible ISR (Ice Speed Record). The ISR convertible is an homage to a world record run on the frozen Baltic Sea by Finnish rally champion Juha Kankkunen, who summoned the courage to take a similar version to 205.48 mph on the ice. If you can summon the courage to pay a grossly inflated price for what is essentially a limited-edition paint and trim package, by all means, indulge yourself in either one of those outdated droptops. Our money is on the new Continental GTC, which, at $215,595, looks fantastic and will save you enough cash to fully indulge yourself in Bentley's never-ending list of sybaritic options. Both of the second-generation Continental models -- GT coupe and GTC convertible -- have exquisitely detailed and handcrafted cabins, a sumptuous array of available colors and fabrics, and a surfeit of speed. They are more than pretty, though. They offer the responsiveness of a supercar with the comfort and ease of operation of a luxury grand tourer. These two-door Bentleys handle, steer, and ride with a sense of purpose and substance that few cars can equal.
