Bentley is now one of the respected British premium manufacturers again. And not without reason: A high-quality manufacturing, meanwhile completely new technological innovations and a prestigious brand behind them know how to inspire Bentley customers.
The brand with the winged logo manufactures extremely luxurious sedans, and SUVs has a weakness for athletics – for reasons: The model portfolio has always included a few Bentley sports cars and is growing groomed.
Bentley has always been a well-known sports car manufacturer. The Bentley Continental GT is currently the only model in the Bentley sports car segment. The term “sports car” only partially does justice to the Continental. Because in contrast to many thoroughbred representatives of this genre, the Continental places much more value on maximum driving comfort and a dignified ambiance with plenty of space and expansive luxury. The fact that the driving dynamics are due to the number of technical helpers.
The currently only model of Bentley sports cars is available as Bentley Continental GT and Bentley Continental GTC. The engine range is laid out, but offers an abundance of power in both versions: The entry-level model of the British luxury coupé is currently a double-charged 4-liter V8 engine – at the other end of the range is the famous and also charged one 6 liters W12 engine with over 600 hp. There are also special models of the Continental: The Bentley Continental Number 9 Edition pays homage to the former 4.5-liter blower Bentley and the Bentley Continental Limited Edition Pikes Peak commemorates the success at the famous hill climb in 2019. Currently, there is not yet a race-track-optimized model of the current series, as was the case, for example, with the Bentley Continental GT Speed in previous generations.
There are several ways you can enjoy the benefits of being behind the wheel of a Bentley sports car. In the end, of course, this is primarily a question of budget.
Bentley’s sports cars are all new. In addition to buying from the nearest Bentley dealership, leasing websites have also established themselves here. Buying a new car is the most expensive option, but it also offers several advantages: You get your Bentley in exactly the configuration you want. The car has the full manufacturer’s guarantee. And, the condition is flawless.
The market for used Bentley sports cars is huge, and the range of corresponding sellers is just as huge: Whether directly from the Bentley dealer, from an exclusive sports car dealer, from a used-car dealer, in an online portal, or from private sources – the decision is entirely up to the buyer. Buying a used sports car naturally also has the advantage that you can also purchase older, no longer manufactured model series such as the Bentley Continental GT Speed that is no longer available.
One variant that has become very popular in recent years is renting a sports car. It has several advantages: You don’t have to spend a fortune to drive your dream car. All costs are already included in the rental price. You can change vehicles with complete flexibility if you feel like doing a new one. And you don’t have any annoying monthly costs that burden you even when financially a little tight.
