2019 Bentley Continental GTC spied again

The next-generation Bentley Continental GTC has been spied undertaking performance testing at the Nurburgring. While the thin camouflage doesn't exactly reveal any new design details, it's quite obvious the GTC will be a fabric roofed version of the Continental GT coupe. It's expected from launch the GTC will be fitted with the new GT's reworked 6...

Configurator Challenge: Bentley Continental GT, featuring 'Harrington'

Customisation is in vogue at the moment, but choice can be seriously confusing. In our new configurator challenge, we’re going to let the CarAdvice team loose on a manufacturer’s website to create their ideal spec of a certain model. For this edition of the Configurator Challenge, we’re designing our perfect Bentley Continental GT...

2018 Bentley Continental GT in numbers

The all-new, third-generation Bentley Continental GT is an entirely new car inside and out, which the luxury automaker hopes will redefine the very essence of the modern-day grand tourer. Either way, Bentley has sold nearly 70,000 Conti GTs (as it’s affectionately known) since launch in 2003, handing it the title of 'most successful model' in the brand's 99-year history...

2019 Bentley Flying Spur hits the Nurburgring

The next-generation Bentley Flying Spur has been spied at the Nurburgring for the first time, in the lead-up to the vehicle's production debut. While there's still plenty of camouflage and false bodywork concealing the new limousine's final design, we can make educated guesses as to what's coming from the new Flying Spur based on the recently-revealed and related Continental GT coupe...

2018 Bentley Continental GT priced from $422,600

Australian pricing for the new 2018 Bentley Continental GT has been announced this week, with the British luxury coupe to kick off at $422,600 before on-road costs ahead of first deliveries in the third quarter. That figure puts the big grand tourer in the same ballpark as numerous high-end luxury sports coupes, including the Aston Martin DB11 V12 (from $395,000), and the Mercedes-AMG S63 coupe (from $414,427)...

Bentley prepares to tackle Pikes Peak in modified Bentayga

Rhys Millen and Bentley are preparing to chase the production SUV record up the fearsome Pikes Peak hillclimb in a Bentayga prepared by Bentley Motorsport. Nope, we aren't pulling your leg. The current SUV record on the famed strip of Colorado blacktop – formerly gravel, alas no longer – is 12:53...

Bentley offers biometric lockbox in Bentayga

Most cars have a lockable glovebox, and maybe some kind of security in the centre console. For most owners, that isn't a problem. As you've probably gathered by now, the Bentley Bentayga isn't most cars, and the brand's average buyers aren't most owners.  That's why there's a new biometric lockbox for the centre armrest, designed to "stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services"...

Bentayga V8: Talking active anti-roll with Peter Guest

The Bentley Bentayga V8 recently launched to the motoring press might have a lightweight aluminium body, but that doesn't make it a lightweight SUV. It tips the scales at nearly 2.4-tonnes, more than a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and slightly less than a Range Rover. It's an enormous mass to manage, especially given the grunt at play from the 4...

2018 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid revealed

The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid has been revealed at the Geneva motor show this week, marking the classic British brand's first tentative step into electrification. There are no obvious visual differences between the Bentayga Hybrid and its internal-combustion brethren, though copper 'Hybrid' badging and bronze Bentley badging are small giveaways...

Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival revealed

Bentley has created a one-off Bentayga to celebrate its partnership with The Jockey Club, a centuries-old horse racing organisation in Great Britain. The exterior is finished in a classic shade of 'Lustre Spruce' – described as a modern shade of British Racing Green – offset by diamond-turned, black-painted 21-inch alloy wheels and black body trim...

Bentley Bentayga V8 brakes are largest, most powerful on a series production car

The standard brakes on the Bentley Bentayga V8 aren't what you'd call 'small'. The steel rotors  measure 400mm up front, gripped by six-piston calipers from Brembo. According to Bentley Bentayga product line director, Peter Guest, the package was approved after an exhaustive development process...
