Special Features of the Bentley Continental GT Coupe V8 (Glacier White)

Except for the Bentley Wing badges and rear lettering, it replaces all external bodies brightware with painted trim and includes black door handles, black radiator matrix grille and surround black exhaust pipes, and more.
Special Glass Windows
Special glass membranes like acoustic glass-reinforced felt, and additional insulation effectively reduces disruptive exterior noise.
This feature optimizes sound levels from the inside cabin, promotes concentration, and makes conversations more comfortable and enjoyable. The reflective foil coating prevents heat generation from coming through the open windows.
LED Matrix Headlamps
The intelligent LED matrix headlamp technology has a high-beam assist that scans the road ahead, projects the light around other cars to prevent excessive glare. It recognizes the opposite car’s headlights at around a distance of 600 meters.
It also features Bentley’s signature design inspired by a cut crystal glassware.
Front Seat Comfort
Offering the highest quality and pampering experience during your road trip, the Bentley Continental GT Coupe V8 showcases a seat comfort package for front passengers.
Comprising multiple functions such as a multi-mode massager, electronically adjustable seating options, electric headrests, and heated armrests.

The impressively sculpted body is made of aluminum, steel, and advanced composite materials with state-of-the-art technology for added durability and visual impact.
The Mulliner Driving Specification also offers the highest automotive technology level with design details such as unique 22-inch wheels, four finishes, Bentley embroidery on the seats, and diamond quilt pattern on the seats, portico, and rear sections.

Interior of the Bentley Continental GT Coupe V8 (Glacier White)
Heated 3-Spoke Steering Wheel
The new steering wheel layout uses a highly durable leather type to ensure longevity and practicality. It fuses timeless crafts with state-of-the-art technology by integrating sensors that work with driver support.
Meticulously crafted by the Bentley Professional, this dual-toned 3-spoke steering wheel offers ease of comfort and safety to the driver while on the road. It also features a heater, which allows you to drive comfortably in the cold weather.
Multi-zone Automatic Climate Control
With its independent temperature control in the upfront seats and rear seats, automatic climate control lets you configure your most used cabin temperature setting.
This replaces switching with an automatic climate setting between temperature controls and fan speeds, initiated by merely pushing the Auto button on your centre controls.
Luxurious Comfort Seats
The front seats can be electrically adjusted 12-way, including heated seats with two memory functions.
Seating configurations also come standard such as Forward/back, Lumbar support, and Seat height, which significantly helps the driver feel a luxurious comfort when driving.
Such options are intended not only for convenience but also provided to ensure and maximize safety for both the driver and passenger.
Crisp and Clear Graphics
Entertainment inside reveals the largest touchscreen yet fitted to a Bentley – a 12.3-inch high-resolution MMI touchscreen display in the central dashboard.
It exudes sophistication and functionality, as it allows drivers to access sat-nav, DAB radio, vehicle settings, and smartphone connectivity services in a fluid, responsive manner.
Auto-adjusting Steering Column
Easy-entry function to the driver’s side of the grand tourer accounts for the auto-adjusting technology of the steering column.
Easy exit activates when the park gear is engaged, and the driver stays unbuckled. Meanwhile, entering and stepping on the brake pedal automatically returns to the settings of the most recent driver profile.
It also features a memory function that saves the adjustment settings in different driving profiles.
Bentley Audio System
The Bentley audio system provides a top-quality audio experience in any adventure you take, with its 10 speakers in 650 watts power positioned in different areas of the Continental GT for that full entertainment experience inside the cabin.
Exterior of the Bentley Continental GT Coupe V8 (Glacier White)
Black-Painted Alloy Wheel
As part of the Mulliner Driving Specification elements, the Continental GT sprints in a 22-inch black-painted alloy wheel. It completes the V8’s striking look and sporting details.
The black tone finish creates depth to the contours of the wheel, whereas the self-leveling wheel badge makes the Bentley ‘B’ upright and immediately recognizable, even while you are travelling at speed.
Functional Side Door Mirrors
Driving and manoeuvring under any weather and space condition made more comfortable with the exterior door mirrors adjusting functions such as heating, power fold, memory, and dip on reverse functions.
The power-folding feature allows the driver to fold and unfold the side mirrors automatically and with ease using the central control. While the heated side mirrors setting steams up the mirror for a much clearer view.
Quad Oval Exhaust Finishers
Fine-tuned to match the luxurious rear exterior of the Continental GT, its exhaust system comes in an oval-shaped quad finisher.
The design of the tips also ensures that you hear the turbo flutter and unique snap crackle that matches the grand tourer’s performance too.
Power Latches to the Doors
Improved safety and security from entry and exit comes from the electromechanical power latches to the doors of the V8 instead of the conventional mechanical leverage.
A power boot opening and closing enhance this feature’s role, providing easy access and quiet close.
Rain-sensing Windscreen Wipers
Driving under bad weather conditions becomes safer with the incorporated rain-sensing auto wipers. It comes as a standard feature in the Continental GT Coupe that immediately senses and wipes away precipitation from your window, giving a crystal clear view of the road.
Heated Rear Screen
A rear defroster helps quickly remove mist and ice from the rear window. It is a thin electrical element through which power runs. In the component, the resistance causes it to heat up, which warms the glass.
A small amount of ice and snow melts from the heat and clears the fogginess of your rear window. This feature is activated and deactivated through the physical control button on the central control.

In the same year of its announcement and six months before its first-generation delivery, Bentley Motors had already accrued over 3200 deposits for its new Continental GT.
For almost two decades, the British automaker explored and modified the Continental GT to different body-style, layouts, and engines to cater to consumers’ varied tastes – intending to deliver only the best luxury grand tourer.

This V8 engine model is famous for its prestigious, effortlessly potent powertrain. Yet, it still offers more like the top-notch technology that increases efficiency without compromising on performance.
