The Bentley Continental GT is one of the most dependable supercars. It has huge performance from the W12 engine, yet superb components and build means it easily absorbs the high miles owners put on it. Seeing cars that have covered many miles is not uncommon, and reflects its easy drivability and dependability. They are rock-solid.
2005 Continental GT coupes are now down to £55k – this is bang on the money and, coincidentally, level pegging with the Aston Martin DB9. This trend continues through the years, too, which is entirely in line with what this car is. It’s Bentley’s alternative to the DB9, and buyers of one often consider the other, too. Lower mileage Continental GTs does tend to hold their values much better. In fact, these have hardened up over the past few months, as many buyers have switched from buying new to used. The stock of available new cars has reduced considerably as heavy discounting has launched most into the market. The company realizes that a short term sales benefit could have longer term implications in erosion of values and consumer appetite to order new ones.
