The Continental GT is a coupe that offers supercar performance in a vehicle of handcrafted luxury and which is a joy to drive. This is the best car to transport four adults in a luxurious environment at speeds of up to 200 mph.
No-one who is interested in the GT will be unaware that the car will be expensive to run; the 6.0 litre W12 engine will return around 17 mpg from an engine producing 567bhp to create its impressive performance. The Speed model has a top speed of 205 mph and there’s a 4.0 litre V8 with a twin turbo that produces 500bhp to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds and should return around 27mpg with much lower CO2 emissions than its stablemate. The engines are coupled to an impressive eight speed automatic transmission to help deliver its supreme levels of performance and excellent cruising abilities.
Despite the size of the Continental GT, its handling is simply superb. The driver will need to use a paddle shift automatic gearbox to help propel the car to great performance but its handling is spot-on and it is a pleasure to drive. With the price tag comes an impressive list of standard equipment including satnav, climate control and very comfortable leather seats and lots of gadgets. The interior is well-designed and made extensively from leather, wood and aluminium to help give this is not only a premium feel but certainly a luxurious touch to the whole experience of owning and driving a Continental GT. There's also a useful list of optional extras, such as ceramic brakes and a better sound system.
Essentially, the Continental GT is the last word for anyone wanting hand-built British luxury in a car that is seriously impressive. Indeed, the GT oozes class and is a joy to drive; the handling and dynamite performance belies its size and weight. Many will find that the Continental GT is a marvellous creation and testament to the luxurious British car building skills that still exist.
