2012 Bentley Continental GTC

Bentley has unveiled the second generation Continental GTC right before the International Auto Show (IAA) in Frankfurt is ready to kick off next month.

We get a presentation video and a number pf photos that underline the fact that the 2012 Bentley Continental GTC has basically been improved in every aspect with some of the highlights including the sculpted exterior design featuring aluminium front wings and sharp power lines and the luxurious interior with the sweeping dashboard and instrument panel finished in premium leather plus the new touchscreen, 30GB infotainment system with dynamic route guidance and Google Map compatibility.

Powering the 2012 Bentley Continental GTC is a 6.0-litre W12 engine with FlexFuel capability which can now develop 575 PS (423 kW)and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, so as you can imagine,

more power equals to better performance figures. the new Continental GTC convertible sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds (0 to 100 Km/h in 4.8 seconds) / 0 to 100 mph in 10.9 seconds (0 to 160 Km/h in 10.9 seconds) and can reach a top speed of 195 mph (314 Km/h).

This new model is compliant with the EU5 emission standards (384 grammes of CO2 per Km), and in terms of consumption it requires an average of 16.5-litres to cover 100 Km (17.1 mpg combined EU cycle / 14 mpg combined EPA cycle). 

The 2012 Bentley Continental GTC price starts at 149,250 GBP (212,800 USD or 170,060 Euro), and the car is already available for order, with the first customer deliveries scheduled for late 2011.
