Review of the 2001 Bentley Continental

  • The Continental coupe lacks the sleek body and technological feast of its less expensive competitors, but these Bentleys pour out staggering amounts of power and are hand-stitched to suit. It's all a matter of priorities, we suppose.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    More torque than any other production model available, prestige factor, sumptuous interior.

  • Cons

    Many more cars are technologically superior, you can get matching his-hers-and-baby's Mercedes-Benz CL500s for the price of one Bentley.

  • What's New for 2001

    This ultra-luxe sport coupe was introduced in 1991, with the high-performance Continental T joining the clan in 1996. There have been no alterations to the Bentleys in subsequent years.
