The ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated all-new Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT has de­buted in the Middle East fol­low­ing its global un­veil­ing at the IAA Frank­furt in Septem­ber. The third gen­er­a­tion of the leg­endary, lux­ury Grand Tourer will tour the re­gion over the next two months, vis­it­ing Bent­ley’s key Middle East and South Africa mar­kets in a se­ries of ex­clu­sive VIP events. This month, the all-new Con­ti­nen­tal GT has vis­ited Abu Dhabi, the Dubai flag­ship show­room, and Kuwait, where it was dis­played at Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Cul­tural Cen­tre, be­fore head­ing to Saudi Ara­bia next week where it will be seen at events in Riyadh and Jed­dah. In Novem­ber and De­cem­ber, the tour will re-visit the UAE, and then move on to Oman. The all-new Con­ti­nen­tal GT sets new stan­dards in lux­ury grand tour­ing. De­signed, en­gi­neered and hand-crafted in Crewe, the new model seam­lessly blends artistry with cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion. An en­hanced ver­sion of Bent­ley’s renowned 6.0-litre W12 TSI en­gine will be avail­able on the new model, de­liv­er­ing 635 PS (626 bhp) and reach­ing 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 sec­onds with a top speed of 333 km/h. Fi­ras Kan­dalaft Head of Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions for Bent­ley Middle East, Africa and In­dia, said: “Bent­ley has de­fined lux­ury grand tour­ing with the new Con­ti­nen­tal GT and we be­lieve this new model is the finest Grand Tourer ever pro­duced. The Middle East is an in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant re­gion for Bent­ley Mo­tors, with some of the coun­tries rank­ing amongst the top ten mar­kets in the world. We are look­ing for­ward to in­tro­duc­ing this ex­cit­ing new model to our prospec­tive and ex­ist­ing cus­tomers in the re­gion.”
