Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Greg Fountain, 25 August 2014 07:00

Not much more than a year after its launch Bentley’s performance flagship has had a minor tickle, presumably with the aim of keeping its kudos-hungry clientele assured that they’ve got ‘the latest version’. The 2014 Continental GTC Speed squeezes 10bhp extra from its already humungously powerful 12-cylinder twin-turbo engine (now making 626bhp), and 17lb ft of extra torque to take ...

Bentley Flying Spur V8 (2014) CAR review

Rated 4 out of 54

Damion Smy, 09 June 2014 10:32

The new 2014 Bentley Flying Spur V8 is powered by its smallest engine yet, but surely it’s not downsizing to reduce running costs and avoid the London congestion fee? After all, if you can shell out £136,000 for a bold, imposing saloon that weighs two-and-a-half tonnes, you’re hardly likely to be too environmentally sensitive nor let a CO2 charge ruin ...

Bentley Continental GT V8 S (2014) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Steve Moody, 05 May 2014 11:00

Don’t assume for a second that an extra 21 brake horsepower added to an existing 500 doesn’t matter so much. On the face of it, the new Continental GT V8 S isn’t much more powerful than a standard V8, and you could be forgiven for taking a look at those figures on paper and having a bit of a shrug. ...

Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner (2013) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Damion Smy, 05 November 2013 13:30

Driving a Bentley is an occasion: even in money-soaked London, there’s still a level of exclusivity in a Flying Spur, more so than the Bentley Continental GT. Yet if you had £150k, would you stump up for the big Bentley?For that princely sum, Bentley will give you a 5295mm-long saloon with all-wheel drive, a 616bhp 6.0-litre W12 – packing two ...

Used supercars guide: buying a Bentley Arnage T

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Chris Chilton, 19 March 2013 12:15

The Bentley Arnage was the flagship Bentley saloon until the new Mulsanne arrived in 2009, and it's now yours from £20-29k. Tempted? Then find all you need to know before buying below. Talk me through the Bentley Arnage's life-span Twinned with the Rolls Silver Seraph from launch in 1998 (in the days when Vickers still owned both firms), the Arnage ...

Bentley Continental GT Speed (2013) review

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

Steve Moody, 28 January 2013 10:24

Driving the new 205mph Bentley Continental GT Speed around Thruxton, Britain’s fastest racetrack: now that’s a day out you look forward to. After all, this fastest-ever (roadgoing) twin turbocharged, W12 Bentley has 616bhp, up from 567bhp the standard W12. It does the 0-62mph sprint in four seconds, and the lap record around the gentle rolling straights of Thruxton was set ...

Bentley Azure (CAR Magazine, May 2007: Bentley to Arctic Circle)

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

Ben Oliver, 19 June 2012 10:01

Not gonna crash this car. I am not going to crash this car. I am not going to have my most expensive and probably final accident at 30 bloody miles per hour. But not having the accident is easier said than done when I’m 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, three days and 1200 miles into the craziest road ...

Bentley Continental GTC (2011) CAR review

Rated 4 out of 54

Steve Moody, 29 September 2011 10:52

Of all the Bentley cars, the Continental GTC may seem the model that adheres least to the company’s core values. Isn't it more of a Californian sun-drenched wafter, the frivolous, less masculine offering, rather than a British upper-class bruiser like the others? From the outside looking in, it’s a view many hold. But slide behind the wheel of the new 2011 Bentley Continental GTC ...

Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible (2011) CAR review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Jethro Bovingdon, 14 April 2011 09:00

Bentley’s Continental Supersports Convertible takes the flex-fuel, high-performance Supersports specification and applies it to that sun-loving celebrity’s favourite, the Continental GTC convertible. Does the Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible retain the performance and dynamics gains of the coupe, or is this just a cosmetic exercise to attract fresh customers to the portly cabriolet? We sent Jethro Bovingdon to find out. Read on for ...

This, ladies and gents, is the new £135,760 Bentley Continental GT, one of the stars of the December issue of CAR magazine. We were the world’s first car mag to drive the Mk2, on the stunning desert roads of Oman: here’s a quick first drive to whet your appetite, ahead of the magazine going on sale Wednesday 17 November.
