Bentley Continental GT Range Gets New Colors, Access To More Options
From the heels of a new Bentayga SUV, Bentley is now turning to the Continental GT. But it’s not a facelift, however. The British brand offers the two-door coupe and its convertible counterpart additional color options just in time for the summer.
Intended as the 2021 model year, the handcrafted Continental GT from Crewe offers Viridian, Patina and Snow Quartz as additional color variants. These three bring the choice of paint palette to 62, bringing the number of customizations to more than 10 billion, according to the automaker.
Depending on the version, Viridian is a modern take on the classic British Racing Green that sports a dark emerald metallic hue inspired by Bentley’s EXP10 Speed 6 concept car. It also comes with a deep agate green with light green and blue undertones, as well as tiny spots of amber and gold for that luxurious touch.
The patina, on the other hand, combines champagne and silk, “inspired by the beautiful atmosphere and the aura of polished metals”. It has a mid-tone cream with tiny notes of subtle greens. Snow quartz is essentially white with three coats of pearlescent paint.
In addition to the new paint options, the Continental GT coupe also has a panoramic glass roof option across the range. Previously, this option was reserved for Contis powered by W12, but it is now possible even if you opt for V8 plants.
Finally, the standard steering wheel of the Conti GT gets a revised shape and profile, which will also be available throughout the range. It also has capacitive sensing, which lets the car know whether you are driving or not – a prerequisite for the car’s semi-autonomous driving assistance systems.
