Motortrend’s Ignition show goes intercontinental in its new episode, driving the new Bentley Continental GTC from America to… Croatia!
The new GTC is such a perfect car for such journey though. No matter where you go in the Bentley, you always feel at home. That’s probably because the car is as big as a house, only it’s more luxurious, and comfortable, and nice.
Engine-wise, the GTC is powered by the 6.0-litre W12 twin-turbo petrol engine, uprated in output from 560PS in the previous generation model to 575PS (567bhp/423kW). Torque is up 50Nm to 700Nm (516lb ft). The W12 is the most compact and technologically advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world. Four camshafts and 48 valves allow the engine to breathe effortlessly and help generate the distinctive Bentley wave of torque.
