2014 Bentley Continental GT Reviews

Vehicle Overview

The four-seat Bentley Continental GT's formidable power is part of its appeal, but so is the range of interior choices that give owners the ability to personalize their car. Competitors include the Aston Martin DB9 and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

(Skip to details on the: Continental GT Speed)

The Continental GT's exterior has a distinctive front end with four circular lights and a mesh-style grille that drops over the front bumper. Around back, there are prominent flared rear fenders as well as twin oval exhaust tips on 12-cylinder models.  The interior features a leather-trimmed dashboard, an 8-inch touch-screen for the navigation and entertainment systems, available massaging front seats and automatic air conditioning.

The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 is nearly as powerful as the 12-cylinder engine. It's rated at 500 horsepower and 487 pounds-feet of torque. Bentley claims the V-8 coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 mph. Under light loads, half of the V-8's cylinders are automatically deactivated to reduce fuel consumption.

The Continental GT's optional twin-turbo 6.0-liter 12-cylinder engine is rated at 567 hp and 516 pounds-feet of torque. Bentley claims the engine can accelerate the coupe to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 198 mph. Both engines team with an all-wheel-drive system that has a rear-biased torque split of 40/60, front to rear, to reduce understeer.

Continental GT Speed
The Continental GT Speed is a high-performance version of the 12-cylinder Continental GT. It has a top speed of 205 mph. The sprint to 60 mph takes just 4 seconds, according to the automaker.

The Continental GT Speed is powered by a 616-hp, twin-turbo 6.0-liter 12-cylinder that makes 590 pounds-feet of torque. Compared to the regular Continental GT, the steering and suspension systems are unique and the ride height is lower. High-performance tires go on 21-inch wheels. Back to top

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
