2015 Bentley Continental GT Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Bentley Continental GT Concept. 2015 Bentley Continental GT changes is one brand new car from Audi that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Bentley Continental GT Release Date.
The Continental GT Speed is the flagship model for Bentley’s pavement devouring line of Gran Touring cars, and now it is getting better. The W-12 engine has been massaged, increasing power to 626 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of toque. Consequently, the top speed has been pushed to 206. That makes this the fastest production Bentley ever.
The Bentley Continental GT is a premium two-door coupe or convertible both of which offer a range of drivetrains and styles, but all are among the most luxurious cars around. The Continental GT is quick in any kind of weather, with all-wheel drive and plenty of power in any option you choose. It competes with the Rolls-Royce Wraith Coup and the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.
All that power also comes with a revised exterior. The visual presence of the Bentley has never been lacking, but a large collection of subtle enhancements make the GT Speed look that much better. As everyone knows, red ones go faster, so thankfully the exterior changes to the new GT Speed include a new Candy Red paint color.

2015 Bentley Continental GT Interior
The interior is fairly traditional Bentley. Acres of leather cover nearly every surface that isn’t metal or wood, and the seats are stitched in a quilted pattern. It is all very luxurious. GT Speed-exclusive touches include a dark monotone interior that features bright painted accents on the doors, console, gear lever, basically anywhere you would traditionally find wood. The Speed branding is stitched into the seats, and the front passenger gets the luxury of having a “subtle yet elegant” Speed badge plastered on the dash in front of them. I think it’s because they don’t have gauges, so Bentley wanted to give them something to look at.
2015 Bentley Continental GT Exterior
The exterior of the GT Speed has always been bold, but the new design changes make the fastest Bentley look more elegant. The aggressive body kit is now painted. It might not seem that noticeable on the grey car we have pictured by the sharp contrast that was present on lighter colored cars was too boy-racer for a true Bentley.
In any case, the GT comes with an all-wheel drive system that uses a Torsen differential and 40/60 front/rear torque split that puts all that engine torque to the road with finesse and allows a composed, refined, and capable driving experience even when the roads aren’t dry. The GT has sublime, capable road manners for a vehicle with this mass and length, and its standard computer-controlled shock system Continuous Damping Control (CDC) allows three different modes, permitting you to push this car hard into tight corners without you or the car feeling ragged. And it of course excels on higher-speed sweepers and in all-day Interstate hauls.
2015 Bentley Continental GT Engine
Powering the big Bentley GT Speed is the old standby W-12 that has been used since its introduction. Thanks to some fettling by the engineers the engine power has been pushed to 626 horsepower and 820 Nm (607 pound-feet) of torque.
The transmission is the same ZF eight-speed automatic found across the Bentley range. As is expected with such things, the GT Speed is equipped with paddles on the steering wheel for manual control over the gear changes.
In the first generation, which was sold until the 2011 model year with one exception, the standard W-12 engine produced 552 horsepower, and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of about 5 seconds, even though the cars each weighed more than 5500 pounds. Updated Speed editions saw power rises to 600 hp, while acceleration times fell below 5 seconds and top speed on coupes rose to 195 mph. A Supersports model added on 21 more horsepower, for a 0-60 mph of 3.7 seconds, and a manufacturer-rated top speed of 204 mph; an ISR special edition reached 631 horsepower. Each version used a six-speed, paddle-operated automatic transmission. Each also rode on an independent suspension, with power shuffled to the wheels via all-wheel drive and a Torsen differential. Fuel economy in the Continental GT in this generation was a very low 10/17 mpg, mitigated only a little by the flex-fuel capability of all versions.
In a class this expensive, there are not truly competitors. You buy what you want, and that is the end of it. With that in mind, if I were laying down cash I would go with the Aston Martin Vanquish. Both have 12 cylinders, both are filled with leather and both have legendary badges. That said, the Bentley is merely pretty while the Vanquish is achingly beautiful.
The GT V8 S model, introduced this past model year, rises to the occasion in 2015 as the performance touring car of the lineup, with a higher-output 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 making 521 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission that includes an S mode with sharper throttle response and a more aggressive shift logic. GT V8 S models can get to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, and to a top speed of 192 mph. GT V8 models carry their output of 500 hp and 487 lb-ft (and sub-five-second 0-60 time) over from last year. Both the GT Coupe and Convertible remain also offered with the top 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W-12 engine that produces 631 hp.
Those W-12 versions do remain the straight-line kings of the lineup, though. They make 567 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, while the Speed editions pump power up to 616 hp and 590 lb-ft. Bentley puts the 12-cylinder coupe’s 0-60 mph times at less than 4.3 seconds and sets its top speed of 195 mph, with convertibles running slightly slower, and Speed coupes hitting 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and topping out at 205 mph. These are astonishing feats for cars that weigh nearly three tons.
