The eagerly anticipated all-new Bentley Continental GT has debuted in the Middle East following its global unveiling at the IAA Frankfurt in September.
The third generation of the legendary, luxury Grand Tourer will tour the region over the next two months, visiting Bentley’s key Middle East and South Africa markets in a series of exclusive VIP events.
This month, the all-new Continental GT has visited Abu Dhabi, the Dubai flagship showroom, and Kuwait, where it was displayed at Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Cultural Centre, before heading to Saudi Arabia next week where it will be seen at events in Riyadh and Jeddah. In November and December, the tour will re-visit the UAE, and then move on to Oman.
The all-new Continental GT sets new standards in luxury grand touring. Designed, engineered and hand-crafted in Crewe, the new model seamlessly blends artistry with cutting-edge technology and innovation.
An enhanced version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine will be available on the new model, delivering 635 PS (626 bhp) and reaching 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 333 km/h.
Firas Kandalaft Head of Marketing and Communications for Bentley Middle East, Africa and India, said: “Bentley has defined luxury grand touring with the new Continental GT and we believe this new model is the finest Grand Tourer ever produced. The Middle East is an incredibly important region for Bentley Motors, with some of the countries ranking amongst the top ten markets in the world. We are looking forward to introducing this exciting new model to our prospective and existing customers in the region.”
