FRANKFURT - September 13, 2017: The all-new Continental GT made its global debut at the IAA 2017 in Frankfurt yesterday. Commenting on its unveiling, Chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, said: “Today is a defining moment for Bentley Motors. Today we build on our recent success story and look to the future with a new car that will set new standards in luxury grand touring. Today we introduce a car that is the ultimate in extraordinary design, technology and innovation.”

“When Bentley launched the original Continental GT in 2003 it established an entirely new market segment – the modern luxury grand tourer. Today, I’m convinced that we are redefining this segment again. It is an honour to replace a car that has – for 14 years – been the benchmark against which all other grand tourers are judged.”

The new Bentley Continental GT is available to order now with customer deliveries starting in Q2 next year and Bentley has confirmed that a plug-in hybrid model will be available in the future.
