The exquisite Continental T's handling and performance seem to defy the laws of physics in being able to move an object of such huge size. Under the skin lies the turbocharged 6.7 litre V8 as seen in Bentley's predecessor the Turbo R. Power is up to 420bhp while torque is a mind blowing 650lbft, enabling the distinguished heavyweight to sprint to 60mph in well under 6 seconds.

Interior refinement is unsurpassed with the finest quality hides and carpets complementing the sporty milled Aluminium dashboard. All this luxury comes at a price though. The Continental T retails for over 250,000 in the UK.
