Model News

After receiving an update last year, the 2009 Bentley Continental GT receives few changes this year. Adaptive cruise control is newly optional, as is a high-end Naim stereo.


Value Writeup

Bentley has few rivals in the world of ultra-luxurious supercars. As a true 4-seater capable of maintaining blistering triple-digit speeds all day, there is perhaps no more comfortable or exotic way to get from Point A to Point B. The open-top GTC loses little in the way of performance, while letting the sun in. The GT Speed takes the model even further, adding performance that puts it on a luxury performance pedestal with rivals such as Ferrari and Aston Martin.


Model Highlights

When it was introduced in 2003, the Continental GT served as a renaissance car for Bentley and returned the legendary British carmaker to a position of cultural and social status it had not enjoyed for more than 70 years. These days, Bentley is very much alive and well, and the GT continues to be a flagship worthy of the marque.

For 2009, Bentley offers the car in three flavors--the Continental GT coupe, Continental GTC convertible, and Continental GT Speed.

As expected of a luxury supercar, the GT, GTC and GT Speed are all are powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.0L W12 engine, but while the GT and GTC put out 552 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque (at just 1,600 rpm), the Speed takes things further and delivers 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft. Performance is stunning; each achieves 60 mph in under 5 seconds, with the GT Speed reaching the mark in just 4.3 seconds. All utilize a 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as air suspension and an advanced all-wheel drive system with traction and stability control. The GT and GTC ride on 19-inch wheels, while 20-inch alloys hold the tires on the Speed.

Interiors feature premium leather in one of 17 colors, Burr Walnut veneer, a DVD navigation and infotainment system, Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, 6-disc CD changer, and column-mounted paddle shifters. The Speed comes with diamond-quilted seating surfaces and doors, with the Bentley emblem embroidered into the seats. It is also set apart by drilled alloy pedals, a sport gear lever, and a three-spoke sport steering wheel. The GTC incorporates a premium fabric power top in one of five colors with a glass rear window.

Options on the GT and GTC include a rear view camera, front seat lumbar massage, carbon-ceramic brakes, special interior veneer inserts, a multitude of alloy wheels, and a choice of 3-spoke sport steering wheels. An audiophile Naim stereo system featuring an 1100-watt amplifier and 13 speakers is optional for 2009, as is a adaptive cruise control system. Additionally, through Bentley's in-house troupe of craftsmen--Mulliner--all Continentals can be customized in nearly any way to suit any and all tastes.


Pros

Bold, sexy, distinctive design; sophisticated, powerful W12 engine; ultra-comfortable interior; exclusivity; available as a convertible.

Summary
Bentley Motors, Inc. (Bentley) is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2011 Continental GT, GTC, and Flying Spur vehicles, manufactured from July 2006 through June 2010 and equipped with carbon ceramic brake discs. In the affected vehicles, the stainless steel screws that secure the brake rotors may fail after being exposed to salty conditions.

Consequence
Failure of the securing screws may result in a reduction of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

Bentley will notify owners, and dealers will replace the screws, free of charge. The safety recall is planned to begin in early November 2013. Owners may contact Bentley at 1-800-777-6923. Bentley's number for this campaign is RE13/14.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
