  • Bespoke interior, plenty of performance, refinement and comfort
  • Heavy, cheaper V8 is better than W12, tech now outdated

The Bentley Continental GT has received a number of tweaks to its exterior for its 2015 facelift. These include a new front bumper design as well as bright chrome badges that denote the engine fitted to the car.

The rear of the GT now has a more sculpted bootlid, as well as a widened and more aggressive rear bumper. A dark tint has been applied to the front grille and air intakes, while exhausts now exist as either double barrelled or large elliptical shapes depending on if you option a V8 or W12 motor.

Mulliner driving specification adds diamond quilted leather seats, winged ‘B’ logos in the seat headrests and drilled alloy pedals.
