If you’re anything like us, you spend way too much time messing around with online car configurators.
Bentley has already launched the online car configurator for its all-new 2018 Continental GT, allowing you to build-your-own personalized version of the grand tourer. Bentley’s configurator is, expectedly, pretty high quality. You can choose from a variety of wheels, options packages, interior hides and stitching and more. Best of all, you can download your configuration or choose to send it straight to your local Bentley dealer if you’re not just window shopping like us.
For our example car, we picked a St. James Red exterior, optional 21-inch ten-spoke machine face wheels, single tone Porpoise grey upholstery with Hotspur red stitching and Tamo ash dash trim. There’s some neat available options to pick from as well, our favorite being the three-sided rotating display, which rotates from a blank veneer panel to the 12.3-inch digital display upon start-up. The third side is a classy trio of dials, giving the interior a bit of an old-school look.
The 2018 Continental GT rides on a new platform derived from the new Porsche Panamera’s. Bentley’s 6.0-liter W12 resides under the extra-long hood, producing a stout 600 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed dual clutch transmission and a new all-wheel drive system. Bentley claims a 0-60 mph time of around 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 207 mph.
