A New Heritage of Bentley


Bentley’s first luxury Hybrid, the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid is powered by a turbocharged 3.0 litre V6 engine producing 335bph with a 168-cell lithium-ion battery mounted to provide an additional 126bph. The all-electric range of 16 miles is perfect for short trips around town in almost complete silence.

The Hybrid offers three driving modes – Hybrid, Hold and the All-Electric EV Drive. In Hybrid mode, intelligent technology ensures the most appropriate energy source is always used, helping to maximise electric driving and minimise emissions and fuel consumption. Intelligent navigation works with the cars on-board navigation system to preserve battery charge when driving in urban areas. An intellectual accelerator pedal ensures you can feel when you’re about to engage the V6 engine, giving you total control, while intelligent coasting switches off the petrol engine when you take your foot off the accelerator to increase efficiency even further. Intelligent braking seamlessly combines the electric motor with the conventional hydraulic system for light and effortless braking.

The new Bentley Flying Spur has been developed as part of the centenary celebration. Its more aggressive design offers the most advanced luxury four-door grand tourer in the world.

The new larger vertical-vane grille is reminiscent of the 1957 S1 Continental Flying Spur, surrounding the grille are the sharp, crystal-cut LED matrix headlamps and topping the nose of the car is a new retractable ‘Flying B’ which also includes LED’s in the wings.

The 6.0 litre W12 engine can reach 60mph in just 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of 207mph which results in an exhilarating drive whilst maintaining a sophisticated and comfortable ride. Active All-Wheel Drive monitors the level of grip and adapts to the driving conditions and terrain to provide greater confidence at all times. With the option of switching between four driving modes, you can enjoy an engaging driving experience on demand, while remaining firmly in control.

Journeys are made all the more extraordinary through innovations such as the optional Bentley Rotating Display. Hidden beneath a beautifully veneered fascia, when you start the car it rotates to reveal an advanced digital display featuring apps, media and vehicle information. A further rotation reveals three classic analogue dials with jewel-like chrome bezels. So you can switch on when you need to and switch off when you want.

The new V8-engined Bentley Continental GT offers performance close to the classic W12 but with the advantage of improved handling. Using a 4.0 litre twin-turbo engine tuned to create 542bhp, the car can reach 60mph in just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 198mph.

With 50kg saved over the front wheels due to a smaller engine, drivers will find this version of the car a much more dynamic drive compared to the W12 version of the grand tourer.

The new Continental GT V8 First Edition has been specially created to celebrate the launch of this exhilarating car, and we strongly agree that this rare and collectable limited-edition model showcases the heights of Bentley design and craftsmanship.

Its unique design details include a specially designed First Edition badge featuring a Union Flag with the number 1 at its centre, placed both on the exterior and inside the car on the fascia. Opening the doors reveals the special First Edition tread plates, and, should you wish, the words First Edition or the Bentley wings can be embroidered onto the headrests.
