Review of the 2005 Bentley Continental GT

  • The Continental GT raises the bar -- and lowers the price -- of what we expect in the ultrapremium GT segment.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent interior materials, high-tech controls and features that make sense, all-wheel-drive confidence, "reasonable" price for a car in its class.

  • Cons

    No manual transmission available, four-seat capacity is questionable, styling doesn't work for everyone.

  • What's New for 2005

    No major changes for 2005.

Its great when it is

Vehicle: 2005 Bentley Continental GT 2dr Coupe (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 6A)

The car handles great and has plenty of power. The interior could be a little better thought out, but only a minor issue. Reliability is a huge problem. There is an electrical bug somewhere in this car and the Bentley service has been poor at best. The car has been in the shop at least 5 times in the last year, and it is still not right. Dealing with the problems has taken all the fun out of this car.

I am a 60 year old maried businesman. We also own a 2006 Jaguar VP and 2004 Mercedes S500. I cannot drive this vehicle without someone giving me the thumbs up. This vehicle is the ultimate driving experience.

Muscular torso in a savile

I bought this car for the interior and it doesn't disappoint - except perhaps the plastic display surround. The leather and wood is heavenly and reminds you of the English craftsmanship clothing the largely German dynamics. The latter is reassuring, since I have had an unpleasant ownership experience with an old school Brit supercar, the Aston Virage. The car is undeniably heavy, but the 4wd deals well with the power, and good drivers can push it further than you might suppose. However, dynamically it would be outpaced through the bends by some of my other cars - Ferrari 550, 911 Turbo, Noble (small volume English rocket!) Still, for elegant trundling, it beats any Merc, BMW or Audi.
