Description

The Bentley Continental ‘T’ is a special motor car and comparatively rare, with just 321 examples gliding out the doors of the Crewe factory between 1996 and 2002. The ‘T’ differed from the ‘R’ having a shorter wheelbase, sportier handling, and an increase in BHP from 400 to 420, but more significantly with a stump-pulling 650lbs/ feet of torque, the highest of any road car at the time and higher even than any F1 car from the 1997 season.

– The Bentley Continental T is a shortened edition (4 inch, 10 cm shorter) of the Bentley Continental R with a more powerful engine and tailored chassis.
– The Continental T has no predecessor or successor but is a model besides already existing models, so also besides the Continental R.
