Bentley’s 2018 Continental GT is now taking the Middle East market by storm. After stealing the spotlight at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the iconic model is currently on a two-month tour in the region where it will make presence at select shows across the leading markets.
The British marque’s bespoke 2+2 GT has already appeared in Bentley dealerships in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Just recently, it returned to Dubai to be a highlight at the much-anticipated 2017 Dubai International Motor Show taking place from November 14 to 18. Following its presence at the grand show, the Continental GT will head off to Oman.
Bentley will also reportedly show off their latest model in South Africa.
The GT is powered by an enhanced version of the 6.0-litre W12 TSI petrol engine. Paired with an automatic gearbox, it cranks out 626 horsepower, enabling it to hit 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds before coasting to a top speed of 333 km/h.
Combining artistry with groundbreaking innovation and technology, the 2018 Bentley Continental GT draws inspiration from the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept car. It is slated to go into production later this year and will reportedly go on sale early next year.2018 Bentley Continental GT, Bentley Dubai
