Bentley to launch its 3G Continental GT coupé in India on March 24, 2018

The all-new, third generation Bentley Continental GT, first shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year, is launching in the country on March 24 in New Delhi.

The new Continental GT is longer than the outgoing model, with the front wheels 135mm further forward, which in turn has allowed the bonnet to be extended and the nose to be lowered.

The wheelbase has increased by 110mm to 2,856mm. The model is 25mm wider than the current car. It is 1,954mm wide, 1,392mm tall and 4,805mm long.

The new model uses the Porsche- developed MSB (Modular Standard Drivetrain) platform, which also forms the underpinnings of the latest-gen Porsche Panamera.

On the inside, the new Bentley Continental GT gets high-quality leathers, sustainably-sourced veneers and technical finishes inspired by Swiss watches.
