Bentley Continental T

Today, the Continental GT is the driving force behind the success of the current Bentley range. But there was a time when the Continental had no “G” in the model name and only the slightest share in sales. Nowadays, the classic Bentley Continental T is praised for its rarity. And also because of its super powers: with almost 900 Nm (!) torque this is the absolute pinnacle under the 90s Continental’s. The "wide body" easily steals the show. And that's exactly what this original ex-demo from Bentley did in the past, at the Pebble Beach Concours for example. Will you soon own one of the only 350 made Bentley Continental T’s?

History
Exclusivity guaranteed: at the time of its introduction in 1996, the Continental T was the most expensive car offered for sale in our country. In exchange, Bentley made it one of the most powerful cars ever built. It’s all about perfection in the highest segment, so the fact that this particular car was frequently used by Bentley as an exhibition vehicle says a lot. Geneva Motor Show, St. Moritz, Pebble Beach Concours; wherever there was a prestigious car event, this Continental T shined. In 2015, our Bentley came into the hands of a Dutch car collector who owns several extremely limited and unique objects. This one is now for sale. Who’s taking maximum advantage?

Exterior
Bentley named its ultimate performance coupe “wide body”. It’s true that the fenders are a lot wider than, for example, the Continental R. But the fact that the grand tourer has a shortened wheelbase of 10 centimeters also contributes to the more compact appearance. However, the Continental T remains an impressive 2 door limousine. In terms of style, the Brooklands and Arnage are no match for the coupe though. In Meteor grey, the classy character comes perfectly into its own. The chrome details in the grille, bumpers and below the doors stand out brilliantly too. The double round light units in the rectangular clusters were typical Bentley in the 1990s / early 2000s and never get old.

Interior
Inside the Continental T sets new standards when it comes to luxury. No beige or black, but French Navy Hide leather has a leading role in the smooth Bentley cockpit. In addition, wood is exchanged for aluminum. The high-tech finish on the dashboard, doors and huge center console underlines the sporty character of this performance-driven top model. However, the seats inside the traditionally designed 2+2 are super soft, which is of course also due to the quality of the ultra-thick leather. The rectangular contours of the Bentley Continental T have a positive effect on the view all around, while the many round gauges and meters already give a speed kick even before the automatic transmission has been set in motion.

Technique & performance
The Bentley Continental T was considered an extra sporty variant on the Continental R and so the performance is upgraded as well. The 6.75 liter 8-cylinder gained in horsepower, but the biggest increase is the torque: with 426 hp and 880 Nm, the rear-wheel driven Bentley is a genuine speed demon. Even more than when it was introduced back in 1996. The silky-smooth V8 needs 5.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h and keeps speeding up until it reaches 270 km/h. Looking at this, the coupe can still match today’s sports cars. Although there’s not one out there with as many classic GT influences as the Continental T. Talking about “a class of its own”…
