The 2007 Bentley Continental GT is a 2-door, 4-passenger luxury coupe, available in one trim only, the Coupe. Upon introduction, the Continental GT is equipped with a standard 6.0-liter, W12, 552-horsepower, turbo engine that achieves 12-mpg in the city and 19-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard. The 2007 Bentley Continental GT is a carryover from 2006.

A standout in the high-priced two-door crowd, the 2007 Bentley Continental GT luxury coupe delivers everything you would expect from a vehicle in this segment. The exterior styling imparts opulence: With its majestic front fascia, this is the sort of car you expect to see being piloted by an Oscar winner or a visiting head of state. Unlike some vehicles in this price range, however, the Continental GT is never stodgy. Its sculpted lines hint at athleticism, and the car rides on big 19- or 20-inch alloys that impart a message of performance.
Enter the cabin and things get even ritzier. Volkswagen, Bentley's parent company since the late '90s, has proven it knows a thing or two about crafting stylish cabins via its work with Audi, another brand in its lineup. Accordingly, the Continental GT's cabin gleams with tasteful chrome and aluminum touches and rich wood trim.
As a pure driving machine, the 2007 Bentley Continental GT isn't your best bet in this segment; the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and Aston Martin DB9 both offer driving dynamics more suited for those with enthusiast leanings. But for those who regard all-wheel drive, deluxe accommodations, tasteful glamour and affordable exotic-car pricing as priorities, the GT should suit nicely.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
Only one trim level is available for 2007 Bentley Continental GT buyers. Of course, this trim is loaded with amenities. Standard equipment on the luxury coupe includes 19-inch wheels; four-zone climate control; xenon bi-HID headlights; adjustable suspension damping; auto-latching doors; 14-way power front seats with three-position memory; massaging driver and passenger seats; DVD navigation; and a 300-watt, 12-speaker audio system with a glovebox-mounted CD changer. A bevy of customization options is available. If you want to personalize your ride with out-of-range exterior paint colors and special interior trim materials and color schemes, you're in luck.
Also on the options list is a Mulliner Driving Specification Package, which adds 20-inch two-piece wheels, unique leather upholstery and upgraded wood trim. There's also a special run of Continental GT Diamond Series. Based on the Mulliner Driving Specification, these cars feature carbon ceramic brakes (a production first for Bentley) new 20-inch wheels and three exclusive exterior colors.
