2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed 2dr Coupe AWD (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Owned tons of expensive cars, by far the easiest to drive with a powerful engine to boot. Excellent styling inside and out. It is like a rocket ship. People slow down to take pictures using their cell phones. But, yes, there is a but because when you spend $200,000 you expect the car to play MP3 CDs, don't expect rattling sounds from the headboard, and chirping sounds from the child safety clam in rear seat. You expect the car to be totally unique but not. It is uses the EXACT same technology as a VW Touareg I had owned. Check it. Side panels vibrate when radio is loud. The road noise is terrible. Worth the money as other cars like lambo and Ferrari not user friendly and cannot be driven daily.


Favorite Features

Outside inside styling, engine, overall look.


Suggested Improvements

MP3 playback capability with Ipod or AUX jack like they do in $12,000 Nissans, Hondas, and other cars 1/12th the cost of this car! Reduce road noise, tighten up panels, headboards and seats to avoid squeaks, and other noises. A few extra inches for rear seat would be nice.

Review

The Continental GT is an exotic car that can actually be driven everyday. The Speed takes it up notch. Even faster and the optional carbon ceramic brakes are pricey, but offer stunning stopping power. (The brakes also offer no noise, no brake dust, much lighter weight and will last for 180,000 miles!) An elegant exterior and the interior sets a new standard in quality and detailing.


Favorite Features

A long list. Stunning performance combined with everyday livability. The Continental is "real" car.


Suggested Improvements

Factory iPod adaptor is a work in progress. It works like aftermarket kits that emulate a CD changer. So no on screen display. Bentley should be embarrassed. Similarly, bluetooth only works with a limited number of phones. Cup holders are too small and could be stronger.
