2010 Bentley Continental Flying Spur
The Bentley Continental GT is a full-size, four-seat coupe. The coupe also comes in a high-performance model called the Continental GT Speed, which cranks out a blistering 600 horsepower. In the $200,000 exotic-car range, Bentley's coupes represent a more civilized — if not quite as sporty — alternative to cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin. The Continental GT's appearance is far removed from the subtle designs of Bentley's past models. The side profile features a pillarless greenhouse with minimal front overhangs and pronounced rear fenders. Out back, there's a flush-mounted rear spoiler that rises automatically at high speeds.
The 2010 Bentley Continental line of coupes and convertibles continues to grow with limited editions. Already offered as a GT Speed and GTC Speed, the Continental range includes a new Supersports edition for 2010, with even more power and finery. In all, there are five Bentley Continental two-doors, each with a wide range of cosmetic and luxury touches available for personalization. The two-door carries a base price, including gas-guzzler taxes and destination charges, of about $185,000, which zooms to more than $275,000 with the new Supersports edition. The competition?
The cabin of all Continentals mixes traditional materials and shapes smartly. Bentley logos, chrome, and wood trim span the Continental GT's wide dual-binnacle dash, with a Breitling timepiece ticking away in the center of the dash, surrounded by walnut or knurled aluminum-or whatever custom trim the owner specifies. The cabin is "a standout, even in this rarefied segment," Edmunds says. "There's a charming old-world feel to the whole affair, highlighted by push-pull vent controls, a Breitling timepiece, and switches and levers constructed of real metal." Cars.com details Bentley's choice of "six natural, unbleached, laser-cut wood veneers" while MotorAuthority outlines the way in which "Bentley logos, chrome and wood trim span the dual-binnacle dash." Bentley takes the homage to its zenith with the Mulliner Driving Specification;
