Originally launched in 2003, the first Continental GT brought a Bentley 2+2 luxury touring coupe into the modern world. Its lines were far more flowing than Bentley vehicles that came before it, and it helped the British automaker reach new audiences. That’s not to say that the older designs were bad, in fact they remain timeless.
Still, the Bentley Continental GT remains the automaker's best-selling vehicle, and there’s a brand-new version that’s arrived. The second generation coupe now has a broader range of engines to choose from, and the “base” version boasts a V8. That might seem crazy to those desiring a W12-powered rocket train, but we forgot to add that this particular V8 comes packing a set of turbos.
