Introduction

Alan Stuart
Professional Consigner

Arguably one of the ultimate sports luxury grand tourers - offering a sophisticated image with a refined driving experience thanks to the mighty 6L W12 under the bonnet.

Launched in 2003, the Bentley Continental was the first car to be made under VAG management, and has succeeded to become one of Bentley's finest grand tourers, using mass production manufacturing techniques from the factory in Crewe, Cheshire.

In 2005 the Mulliner Driving Specification was introduced, allowing further customisation of an already well-spec'd car. An array of interior trim options, 20-inch 2-piece 7-spoke alloy sports wheels, drilled alloy sports pedals and footrest, gear lever finished in chrome, two-tone leather and veneer combinations, diamond-quilted hide to facing doors and rear quarter panels, seats with embroidered 'Bentley' marque and dark-stained burr walnut, to name a few.

This Bentley currently belonging to Andrew was previously owned by the Pangbourne main dealer as a factory demo car. As you would expect, it comes highly spec'd to show off the latest features and technology the Continental GT had to offer. The GT is powered by the mighty 6.0L twin-turbocharged W12 engine, which produces a whopping 552bhp with a top speed of 197.6mph.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Alan after meeting Andrew the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I can proudly say this car is incredible after 12 years of ownership - the luxury is intoxicating.

Andrew purchased this car in 2010, after shopping around for a new Gran Tourer he decided a Continental GT would be perfect for all his needs. His local dealership, Bentley Pangbourne had this stunning example showing ~1,700 miles on the clock, along with a long list of specifications, therefore he had to take the opportunity.

Over the past 12 years, Andrew has thoroughly enjoyed his ownership, taking the car on the occasional trip across Europe. The car was always attended to by specialists and local main dealer, addressing any issues as soon as they arose. Recently all the brake pads and discs were changed changed as well as the wheels refurbished and the rear air suspension damper replaced.

Andrew will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the car in the comments below.

CONTACT OWNER

Exterior

Finished in Oynx for an incredibly sophisticated and powerful look against any landscape.

Wheels and Tyres

Fitted with 20-inch 2-piece 7-spoke alloy sports wheels which have recently been treated to a refurbishment. They now present in excellent condition on this Continental GT Mulliner.

The tyres have a great amount of tread remaining - they're all wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Rosso's dated 2013/15/18.

We have captured an overview of wheels and tyres in the detailed photos and videos.

Bodywork

The condition of the bodywork is finished to a very high standard across the car, with all the panel gaps aligning as they should, and as you would expect for a luxury grand tourer. The front bumper exhibits some very light stone chips, and the nearside front wing has a very small chip. However you'll have to get really close to notice. There's a very small chip and slight indentation above the rear window.

Andrew reports the doors, boot, and bonnet open and close just as they should. We have taken hi-resolution images and videos of the car for you to assess the condition of the bodywork for yourselves.

Paint

Finished in an Onyx Black, a classic choice for this luxurious grand tourer. The paint appeared in great condition on our visit, finished to a very high standard, with even coverage and colour across each panel.

Again, please take time to review all the images and videos showing the paint from different angles and reflections, to assess the condition for yourselves.

Glass and Trim

The glass on this example looks good - we didn't notice any chips, cracks, or discolouration on our visit.

The window seals look good too and in line with the rest of the condition of the car.

Interior

Finished in crisp Linen White leather over Dark Walnut Burr trim - travel anywhere in first class style.

Seats and Carpets

You'll only find the highest quality seats within this Continental GT - luxury Linen White leather drapes the sports heated seats with the iconic diamond-quilted stitching and the flying Bentley emblem embossed onto all seats. The front two seats boast a massage function.

As you would expect for a well-looked after a luxury sports car, the interior matches the exterior and appears in excellent condition. The door cards, carpets, and headlining all present in great condition with no issues worth noting.

Please take a look at the extensive media for a detailed view of the cabin.

Dashboard

The dark walnut burr dashboard of the Continental GT appears in great condition and has no signs of any major damage or scuffs. With no warning lights displayed, and the odometer is showing a reading of 41,673 miles on our visit.

Please see the interior gallery for a closer view of the dashboard.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

An optional extra fitted was a 3-spoke, dual-tone, hide trimmed steering wheel with black switch surround.

The steering wheel and automatic gear selector present in excellent condition, and are consistent with the overall presentation of the cabin. Both items are in great working order, with the steering wheel boasting many multifunctional buttons for the driver to choose from.

Mechanics

The 6L W12 engine will swiftly take you to 60mph in 4.8 seconds.

Engine and Gearbox

The real centrepiece of this Continental GT is the 6.0L twin-turbo W12 engine, which produces 552bhp, 0-60mph speed of 4.8s, and a top speed of 197.6mph.

There is a sport setting on the transmission.

Take a look to see 'One the Road' footage and hear the 6L jump into life. Andrew reports that the car goes through the gears as it should. Please take a look at the video and photographs of the very smart engine bay.

Suspension and Brakes

In 2008, the Continental GT saw a 35kg reduction in kerb weight due to optimisation of the suspension and cooling systems. The car now used aluminium parts for the suspension. As you would expect the car's suspension offers silky smooth rides on any surface, ideal for touring continents.

The suspension has multiple settings from comfort to sport.

Andrew reports a very enjoyable and smooth journey in the GT, with the suspension offering a comfortable ride and prompt stopping power from the newly fitted brake discs and pads.

The Drive

A mix of superior build quality, sophisticated image, and refined driving capabilities - you will not be disappointed when you sit in the cabin of the Bentley Continental. The car is ideal for any journey, with its four-wheel-drive chassis and W12 engine.

Andrew has thoroughly enjoyed his ownership of this GT and will be rather sad to see it go after 12 years.

Electrics and Other

Fitted with a long list of technology, the Bentley is not short on electrical features. Some options to mention: 3-spoke, dual-tone, hide trimmed steering wheel with black switch surround, front massage seats, Bluetooth telephone system, iPod interface, NavTrak provision, powered boot opening and closing, soft close doors, reversing camera and all around parking sensors.

All the electrical items on the car are reported to be functional and fully working to Andrew's knowledge.

History and Paperwork

Ideal for this summer and many year to come - this well-spec'd Oynx Black Continental GT with tonnes of provenance is ready for its next European road trip.

The car is coming out of 12 years of ownership with Andrew. He has always had the servicing carried out at his local Bentley garage (except the last service with specialists).

Andrew reports in 2014 he had a new Air Mass Meter replaced by Bentley Pangbourne, windscreen and the boot motor was replaced in 2011, brake pipes and hoses were replaced in 2015, a small air leak in the suspension was fixed in 2015, and then the air damper was replaced in 2021, along with the brake pads and discs all round.

Andrew mentions the indoor and outdoor cover is included with the sale, and he will be happy to answer any of your questions in the comments below.

Hi Andrew,

I have studied the mot & service paper work.
Am I correct in saying, the car has had full main dealer servicing up until the very last service.

Many thanks….Colin

Dear Andrew, when is the next service due and what type of service will be needed ( A, B, A + B, etc.. ) ? Does this car come with any warranty or can I purchase additional warranty for it ? Based on your experience and use for 12 years, and keeping up with all the repairs and services, how much should one allocate for maintaining the car up to its recommended standards and services ? Thank you
