2006 Bentley Continental GT 2dr Coupe AWD (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 6A)


This is one fantastic car. It's fast, handles well, has great looks, and has a Bently badge which makes it that much better. I like to drive with the paddle shifters, tap the left one to downshift an the turbos propel you to great speed within seconds an lets you hit very high speeds, which doesn't take very long. Its steering accuracy is superb at all speeds which makes the car feel lighter than it is. It wieghs about 5,200 pounds, but the steering makes it feel like its a mere 2,100 pound Miata. The brakes never fade or give up, I went from around 80 to 0 mph with in a few seconds to avoid rear ending a car in heavy LA traffic, most cars would have squeky, faded brakes, this thing never gives up. I love it!

Best Features

The paddle shifting. The light steering making you feel like its a light race car. The looks it gets from everyone everywhere. Comfy interior thats small yet somehow everything is in the right spot an fits 3 adults. The comfy suspension that is nice on harsh roads an racecar like in canyons.

Worst Features

The gauge cluster reminds me of an Audi. In fact, Audi is the first thing that came to my mind when I look at the gauges. There's nothing wrong with Audi but I want some indvidual styling. The sound at low speeds makes it sound like a V10 Viper instead of a W-12 Bently.
