After all most one year of testing, the all-new 2019 Bentley Continental GTC has finally lost all of its camouflage, revealing itself in the final form just before receiving the go ahead for production.
It is bigger, lower and wider, yet classy and beautiful. A real contender for the likes from Aston Martin DB11 Volante or 2019 BMW 8-Series. In fact, so it should have been, as it deserves the best appreciations.
Even if at the beginnings, the engineers have had rough times finding a way out to perfectly fit the folding canvas roof into the car`s lower design, they have surely managed to do that by lowering its front and rear, while the side now comes with tell-tale Continental rear haunch.
Even if the model has a couple of things in common with other models within the Volkswagen Group – it shares the same MSB platform with the new Porsche Panamera – most of its parts are genuinely Bentley – around 82 percent.
Also, compared with its coupe sibling, the new Bentley Continental GTC is a bit heavier than the standard model, meaning that it is slower from the 0 to 100 km/h. While we`re at it, the same 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine will be fit underneath, developing rather the same power – 635 PS and 900 km/h. That means that the sprint is done in around 0.2 seconds more than the coupe`s 3.7 seconds.
On top of that, it also uses a dual-clutch transmission working in tandem with an active all-wheel drive system and the so acclaimed 48-volt Dynamic Ride System.
Official photos, details and prices with the all-new 2019 Bentley Continental GTC will emerge this summer. Until then, all we have is the car`s final spied photos before entering the production form. Enjoy and don’t forget to tell us if you like the new GTC!
