2016 Bentley Continental GT Updated
Bentley is treating its Continental GT family of convertibles and coupes into a number of outdoor and interior changes, along with a power bulge for the W-12 engine.
Up front, the 2016 versions sport a smaller grille, a fresh fender, and redesigned fenders that include the obligatory side gills, here adorned using the "B" symbol. In the back, a fresh fender dons chrome, as well as a there is a lower diffuser added on GT and V8 S Speed versions.
Interior upgrades contain a revised center console, a smaller steering wheel, new gauge faces, and WiFi that is accessible. The seats, upholstered in faux suede that is accessible or softer leather, now possess a stitching pattern that is new -- diamond quilting continues to be accessible, although rest assured.
The W-12 engine was goosed to 582 from 567 hp, while torque is up by 15 pound-feet to 531. The inclusion of cylinder deactivation--which the unchanged-for-2016 V8 already had--enables the W12 to run as a six-cylinder in seconds of lesser urgency. (The fuel-saving attribute, although not the end product that is additional, comes additionally to the accessible W12 of the Flying Spur sedan. The four door also gets the WiFi connectivity, as well as a few of the interior upgrades, but none of the styling tweaks.)
Although, to be honest, that racy two seater has two thirds the cylinder count.
However, the upgrade for 2016 of the engine proposes that the Flying B brand means to keep both of its own dual-turbo offerings around, at least.
