The Bentley Continental GT is a grand tourer coupé with two doors and a 2+2 seating arrangement, released in 2003, replacing the previous Rolls-Royce-based Continental R and T.


It is equipped with a 6.0L, twin-turbocharged W12 engine, producing 552hp (412kW), with a top speed of 198mph (319km/ h). The car is designed by Belgian designer Dirk van Braeckel. The Continental GT is built on the Volkswagen Group D1 platform. Largely, it could be considered a rebadged Volkswagen Phaeton, with a different styling and a more powerful engine, most of the technical components being identical to those on the Phaeton.

In early 2007, a Bentley Continental GT Speed driven by four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen broke the world speed record on ice on the frozen Baltic sea near Oulu, Finland. It averaged 321.6km/ h (199.86 mph) in both directions on the "flying kilometer", reaching a maximum speed of 331 km/ h (207 mph). The previous record was 296km/ h (184mph), achieved with a Bugatti EB110 Supersport.

The record-breaking Bentley was largely standard except for a roll-cage, aerodynamic improvements, and low-temperature fuel and calibration.
