Bentley Motors is proud to announce its first-ever ‘Best Cars’ award from the highly-regarded automotive magazine Auto Motor und Sport. The Bentley Continental GT, definite, luxury grand tourer, has been elected by over 100,000 readers in the luxury class import category for this 46th edition of the ‘Best Cars’ awards from Auto Motor und Sport.
The latest, third generation Bentley Continental GT remains the pinnacle luxury coupe in the world, blending spirited performance with the latest in cutting-edge technology. Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Britain, this definitive coupe offers customers a unique breadth of Grand Touring ability.
