Thumbs up Bently Continental GT Speed | Peacock - Imperial

Absolutely astonishing....

Watch the entire video for complete details including interior.

My personal Dream Car is this or a Aston Martin DB12
The combination of opulent luxury combined with enough performance to hang with Supercars. What more could any human want?

I've become a huge fan of the BGTC. Car is an absolute sledgehammer.

You may have poor taste in NFL football teams, but great taste in cars.


I've become more and more interested these Bentleys recently. Astons very much pull at my heart strings too.

The exterior color on the Bentley is a stunner.

Haha. It's all good my guy.

Isn't this Blue absolutely breathtaking? I've watched the video a couple of times and paused it. I still can't figure how this color was achieved. The orange accents go perfectly!

The new GT and Flying Spur are incredibly nice. Waiting for sub-$130k to pull the trigger. 1-2 years. You should try driving a Wraith or Dawn though. Not as fast as the GT but the ride is as smooth as can be and they have a presence like no other (except a Phantom)

Lovely car!

I’d have one of these though. I took these pictures last Saturday when I was an Aston Martin event. The white has an incredible metallic fleck that does not come through in photos. It is called Neutron White. Interior is such a step up from DB11. So tempting.

It’s tempting until you remember that it will cost you $150k to own for two years.

Damn I need to go drive one of these. The interiors on these are just simply gorgeous. I love that the digital display folds away to just have regular ol' guages.

Very nice, although for the Conti GT I think I'd avoid the "Speed" model with all the sporty touches. For me I'd probably get a W12 model with silver/chrome finishes, maybe even the cabrio simply since its a GT car, I prefer the luxury look of a Conti.

Brutal acceleration and speed, I can't get over how quiet the cabin is at over 300KHM. The car is beautiful, I'd be concerned about all the suede/alcantara. Not sure it would wear well on the seats. Just my two cents though as it is stunning.

Notice how absolutely stable it is at those Speeds!
And yep, it's those nice British touches alla James Bond.

I definitely respect that my friend. For me, the "Speed" or Sporty model probably adds just enough suspension, exhaust tuning to not make feel so "floaty". For those "quick bursts" to the local Country Club.

I run an earlier Gen 2 BGT that I've sensibly remapped.. it certainly does pick up its skirt and goes when it wants to but they are also a heavy car.... love mine....

Wow, looks great. Agreed, not as flashy as a rolls which is great. But at the same time a great blend of everything else that puts it over the top.

Not a fan of where aston has been headed in the styling department lately.

IMO the alcantara on a Bentley is a waste given how nice their leather is. Love the Speed touches but would get one with full leather if spec’ing it myself

They hold their value quite well down here. Bentleys? Not so much.
