Bentley Coupe Reviews

British automaker Bentley has been around since the early 1900s, and its coupe models have never been overlooked. Although luxurious Bentley sedans might be a bit more recognizable, its coupes, especially under the Continental nameplate, are regarded as one of the highest forms of automobile luxury around the world. Currently, Bentley offers two coupe models: the 2012 Bentley New Continental GT, and the 2011 Bentley Continental Supersport.

The 2012 Bentley New Continental GT is representative of a long, successful Bentley history- made of glorious British engineering and design. Bentley's first models were Grand Touring units, and the 1950s R-Type Continental and early 21st century Continental GT took this storied history and rewrote it by revolutionizing the automobile industry, and throwing all enthusiasts for a loop. The newest Continental GT is a testament to these original vehicles, with a modern twist and updated technologies. It combines luxury and performance in a refined package. Like the Grand Touring vehicles before it, the 2012 Bentley Continental GT is sure to make a splash.

The brand-new Bentley Continental Coupe is, in actuality, a re-constructed Volkswagen Phaeton and features a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine. This engine produces a massive 560 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. 4WD is standard, and the GT accelerates from zero-to-sixty in less than five seconds. Fuel economy numbers are around 12 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway due to the coupe's powerful personality. Price is around $190k, and the coupe competes with vehicles in much the same price range, such as the Jaguar XK-Series, as well as vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz CL Class. The 1st generation of the new Continental GT originally appeared in 2003-2010, with the second generation occurring in 2011.

The 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports coupe is also still for sale from new stock Like the GT, it is a part of the Continental line that was first released in 2003 as a replacement to the Bentley Continental R and T (based on the Rolls-Royce model). The Supersports, specifically, was first produced in 2009 in limited numbers. It's the first Bentley that's capable of using gasoline and ethanol to power its amazing 630 horsepower, 6.0-liter W12 engine. It's even faster than the GT, with a zero-to-sixty time of less than four seconds and a top speed around 204 mph. In fact, it's the most powerful and fastest Bentley ever made. It has a price tag around $267,000 and competes with such vehicles as the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class coupe and the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe. It also comes in a convertible variant, with is just as speedy and powerful- at a slightly higher price. This coupe features a Quickshift system, a four-wheel-drive system, Ultra High Performance tires, twenty-inch alloy wheels, the most powerful (ceramic) brakes to ever be featured on a sports car, an automatic retractable spoiler, and an electronic stability program. Overall, the Supersports is a faster, more powerful version of the Continental GT coupe. Both are fantastic choices for drivers that desire luxury and a hefty engine.
