Despite the 6-figure price tag, the Bentley Continental GT has never made our Dream Garage segment simply because – well – they seem pretty pedestrian out here in L.A. A crazy thought, I know, but hey why have a car in a dream garage that you see all the time?
So what makes this particular Bentley Continental GT so special? Is it the $267,000 base price? Maybe the 613 hp and 590 ft lbs. of torque? Perhaps the ZF 6HP26 6 speed transmission?
Nope. The real reason this car is so special is because they built it to run on both regular gas or/and ethanol.
Let me wait for a second while the heavens above you rips into two pieces. “What the hell is the world coming to? A green Bentley?” Well I guess the term “green” may be a little overexaggerated here. It’s not “green” because it drives 50 miles to a gallon, it’s green because you can use alternative fuels. The engine is still going to use up fuel like a big dog drinking water after a 5 mile hike. The folks over at Bentley just decided to create a car that wasn’t so reliant on fossil fuels.
As with every other Bentley, materials and finish are top notch. You’re still going to feel like you are driving a Bentley both because you just spent $275k to buy it and probably because you will spend a ton of money to maintain and drive it.
But at least you aren’t killing the environment. That’s what is most important.
