The Bentley Continental GT Azure and Flying Spur ranges are getting new grilles and exterior colours for the summer. The 2024 Continental GT Azure family, which includes coupe and convertible models, borrows heavily from the Bentayga Azure and features a redesigned vertical grille at the front.
On the Exterior, The Flying Spur Speed and S continue the history of changing the grille by swapping out the vertical grille for the characteristic Bentley matrix pattern. Other Speed range improvements include Granite exterior trim, which Bentley believes complements the optional black-line specification by providing a more performance-inspired design. The interior leather in the sporty sedans is likewise patterned with diamonds.
Topaz Blue, a new exterior paint choice, joins the fray as well. The brushed aluminium parts for the Continental GT and Flying Spur ranges have also been revised. According to Bentley, the new finish necessitates precise brushing from numerous directions to generate a contemporary three-dimensional look.
Inside, all Azure models come standard with 100% wool floor mats. According to the manufacturer, only a particularly selected wool kind is utilized because of its cleanliness and colour purity. The extravagance is not limited to Azure vehicles since the mats are offered as an option on all other models. Bentley replaces virgin nylon materials in non-wool-carpeted cars with a new recycled version that it claims provides the same level of comfort and feel.
Engine, Power and Transmission
The Continental GT is driven by a twin-turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 petrol engine that can reach speeds of 168 mph (270 km/h).
All Flying Spurs have an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, and a potent twin-turbocharged engine. The standard engine is a 542-hp V-8, but we recommend upgrading to the Speed variant, which comes solely with the 626-hp W-12 engine.
In terms of pricing the 2023 Bentley flying spur price starts from $204,500 while the 2022 Bentley Continental GT V8 Coupe price starts at $202,500*, and the Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible starts at $222,700
