Introduction

Tom Brett
Content Editor

Smooth lines, a 6.0L W12 twin-turbo engine, and an incredibly luxurious interior; get in and drive to the Côte d'Azur we say!

Designed by Raul Pires and Dirk van Braeckel in 2000, the vehicle debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003. Differing from its coach-built predecessors this was the first Bentley to be mass manufactured, although still hand built. The engine pushes out 552BHP to all the wheels via a Torsen based 4 wheel drive system.

This particular example has been cherished by a set of friends from new, the most recent having owned it for 5 years. Coming with its service history and having only covered ~51,000 miles from new.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jon, the owner, having photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

She has seen France, Germany, 2 weddings, 2 proms and many a memorable weekend break.

Jon the owner of this lovely GT purchased from a good friend 5 years ago. That friend actually knew the original owner, and bought the car from them when it was 5 years old.

He mentioned "For us, the car was an indulgence purchase, but has been a real joy to our family for 5 years". We can definitely understand that given the trips they've taken across the continent, using the car just as it was designed to be used.

Exterior

A new design language, this Bentley really put a stamp on the brands direction and arguably created a class of its own.

Wheels and Tyres

19" 9-spoke Bentley alloys all wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tyres. These were fitted in 2011 and look in good condition with tread for many miles to come.

The wheels themselves have suffered some corrosion to the finishing plating which require refurbishing. Take a look at the photos to see the detail.

Bodywork

Lines on a GT car don't get as smooth as the Continental GT, Bentley themselves describe it as bullet like. Free from corrosion and dents etc from a well cared for example, the body really is in excellent condition.

All shut lines and panel gaps look tight, take a look through the photos and video to see the detail.

Paint

Set in a stunning Moonbeam Silver, all paint is even in finish and is free from any unwanted damage. The classy colour will look good in a vast range of environments, sprinting along country roads or at night shining under the city lights.

Glass and Trim

All in excellent condition with no issues observed in the photographs or videos presenting the car.

Interior

A cabin fit for a king. Leather, electronics and quality cabin that you can navigate from with ease for miles.

Seats and Carpets

The leather-upholstered electrically adjustable seats are shown in very good condition. All carpets are clean and ready for sale, in line with the excellent condition this Bentley Continental GT displays.

The rear seats looking in top condition too. A fantastic centre console with air conditioning controls hosts the two rear passengers with comfort and convenience.

Dashboard

All dials and gauges look great and very clean in the interior photos. The model-specific Breitling clock sits proud in the centre of the dashboard.

The rest of the dash looks good with the leather still tightly bound in all areas. Take a look through all of the photos taken to showcase the condition.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

With infotainment and phone controls, the large Bentley steering wheel is stunning, in very good condition.

The aluminium plated gear stick is clean and functions with satisfaction.

Mechanics

The 6.0L W12, 552 BHP with 479 lb ft of torque capable of nearly 200MPH and 0-60MPH in just shy of a 4.8 second sprint.

Engine and Gearbox

A 6.0L W12 twin-turbo is a highly versatile machine - cruising seamlessly at low speeds, whilst packing a punch with further acceleration you get 552BHP.

Featuring a reliable automatic 6-speed gearbox and all-wheel-drive, we are assured by the seller both engine and gears function very well.

Suspension and Brakes

Jon tells us there are no knocks, bumps or rattles heard when driving the car. With the air-levelled suspension, these are an incredibly comfortable ride.

Upon observing the photos we have received, we saw no signs of corrosion in the photos, showing the car has been stored correctly for the majority of its life.

The Drive

A phenomenal car that looks amazing and is great to drive. Behaving well at every speed, it feels effortless at everything you ask the GT to do.

Jon has been lucky enough to use the car on trips across the continent, all trouble free he reports.

Electrics and Other

Jon Assures us all electrics on the car work as expected. The car does suffer the common issue of parking sensors sounding when braking. Some attention could be used to rectify the issue.

History and Paperwork

Coming from a 5 year ownership, known previous keepers and serviced within the last year.
