The 2005 Bentley Continental GT - More than a Car, an Icon
If you want a serious car, with serious features, nothing fits you better than a Bentley and the 2005 Bentley
Continental GT will suit you best, without a doubt. As the first model launched by Bentley Cars Ltd, after the
ending of the 70 year partnership with Rolls Royce, this was a car that was meant to make an impression, and an
impression it made. With a design that respects all of the standards launched by the previously created Bentley
cars, the 2005 Continental still brings on some changes: it is the first Bentley model that sports an all-wheel
drive and it is also designed to be smaller and slightly less expensive than previous models.
The 2005 Bentley Continental GT sports great features, no matter what is more important for you when reviewing a
car: whether you are interested in power and performance or safety and control, looks or comfort, the 2005
Continental has it all. Here are some of its most impressive features:
6.0 litre 552 horsepower engine
ABS, complete driveline traction control, sport suspension
13.1 cubic feet cargo volume
Side impact bars
Rear and front vented disk brakes
Electronic brake force distribution
Airbags for front and passenger seats
The car comes with its own security system, designed to prevent unwanted intrusion
Genuine wood insertions in the instrument panel
Interior concealed storage - helping you keep your more precious cargo out of sight
Rear climate controls - passengers in the back can set their own temperature preferences
12 speakers for a full audio performance
In-car phone that works with voice activation that can understand six languages.
Professional navigation system
Rain detecting window wipers
The 2005 Bentley Continental GT is designed to be pleasing its driver and passenger. Created as a
statement for the newly independent Bentley, it is a small-scale version of the previous Bentley line - it keeps
its general features and yet adds a new breath of fresh air and a new personality.
This 2005 Continental comes with great performance, being able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in an
impressive 4.7 seconds. Quite impressive, isn't it?
All in all, it is clear that the manufacturers have outdone themselves and managed to make every little detail
perfect when building this car. And this is why the Bentley Continental GT for
sale has become an icon when it comes to luxury.
For years and years the British were the poor relations of motor racing. Although they built
nice sports cars, they only very rarely won an international sports-car race. And no one dreamed that the bumbling
English would ever get any place at all in Grand Prix racing. I had long thought that this was why the British and
their anglophile adherents deified the old "big green Bentleys” of Le Mans.
And why, along with this deification, they also magnified the importance of the vingt quatre heures du Mans out of
all proportion. After all, the Bentleys must have won an important race. But times have changed. The British are
the near masters of motor racing. It is no longer necessary to look back nostalgically at ancient victories, or at
the cars which won them. But the Bentley cult continues.
I was at least partly wrong; people (and include me, please) love those old Bentleys for other reasons beside the
fact that they won in the days when other British machines seemed to make a habit of losing. Why? The Bentleys from
first to last a mere twelve years, were honestly, beautifully constructed motorcars built by an honest man, Walter
Owen Bentley, who had the same feel for carved and cast metal that Henry Royce had.
For like Royce, he had served the grueling, five-year apprenticeship in the locomotive shops of the Great Northern
Railway. Further, although built to keep on running without fault or breakage, Bentleys were meant to move rapidly,
to steer positively, to look wonderful, and they still do today.
