HERITAGE OF SPEED 极速的遗产

In 1952, a car that could reach a top speed of 120 mph was unheard of until Bentley released its iconic R Type Continental. The four-seater is known as the world’s first Grand Tourer, and only 208 cars were produced, making them the car of the season.

50 years later, this grand dame of the road inspired Bentley’s designers to girt the world the first Continental GT.

The Continental GT echoes the elegance of its R Type predecessor with the three Continental styling cues. First, the seamless curve of the striking power line and second the muscular haunches that indicate the brute force concealed within the updated version of Bentley’s prestigious heritage, built by coachbuilders H.J. Mulliner. The third element is the Continental’s famous swooping, fast roof line.

Almost doubling the performance of its first version, the Continental GT reaches a top speed of 206mph with its W12 power engine to give the world a technological marvel that is the Bentley Continental GT.

在1952,一辆汽车达到最高时速120mph是前所未有的,直至宾利发布它的标志性研发成果,而这个被称为世界第一的四人座豪华旅行跑车,仅产208辆,使他们领尽风骚。

50年后,这个璀璨之路也启发宾利设计师造出世界第一的欧陆GT。

欧陆GT呼应R型的优雅前身,还有三个关键线索传承。首先,惊人的力量感曲线,第二元素是宾利著名的遗产和更新版本,车尾部的战斗性肌肉曲线,由经验丰富的H. J. Mulliner车厂制作。最后的线索就是欧陆著名的俯冲,快速的顶线。

与首个版本相比,欧陆GT的性能几乎翻倍,达到206mph,而极速的W12发动机给世界展现了技术奇迹。
