Bentenly Continental GT Review
By Donald G. Santucci on
2005 Bentley Continental GT 2dr Coupe (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 6A)
Over the years I have had the good fortune to have owned a few exotic cars. While the Bentley GT does not have the, "outer edge",handling of some of the Ferriaris, Aston Martins and some other exotics, it is truly a high performance car, but without the harshness exhibited buy most of the other cars of it's breed. As for the over all handling, it should be more then adequate for 98 percent of the people out there that buy these kinds of cars. Personally I don't mind giving up some preformance, that I'll never need, for a little more refinement and creature comfort.
I particulerly enjoy the sure footed feel of the all wheel drive. A welcome addition when one considers the 560 HP. engin also pute out 479 lbs. of toque.
The car weighs over 5,000 lbs. It woule be nice if they could find a way to reduce the weight while not sacrificing the integrity of the body or increasing the price.
