Overall, the Bentley Continental GT S is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering.

It’s the perfect combination of style, power, and comfort, and it’s no wonder it was named the 2023 Car of the Year by Robb Report. If you’re looking for a car that truly embodies luxury and performance, the Continental GT S is the perfect choice.

As the Robb Report noted: Two decades ago, Bentley introduced its W-12-powered Continental GT. The car was groundbreaking as an ultra-luxury “personal” GT that delivered incredible performance.

“We well remember inviting the brand-new Bentley Continental GT to participate in the 2004 Robb Report Car of the Year (COTY). Our editorial team knew it was a groundbreaking car for Bentley,” the Robb Report noted in a recent article. 

“We shouldn’t have been surprised when it was named that year’s winner, given the brilliant 12-cylinder engine, German-infused precision, and a rakish profile that tipped its hat to the glory days of the automaker’s R2 Continental. Never mind that most of today’s Bentley owners weren’t even alive—much less driving—when the first Continental hit the road in 1952.”

The Continental GTC took Car of the Year honors at Robb Report again in 2007. Over the years, Bentley’s Continental was also named the Robb Report’s Best of the Best.

By 2022, it was once again the Car of the Year champion thanks to the “flawless” GT and GTC.

“Those entries checked all the boxes for performance, luxury, quality, and comfort, kind of like the very first Bentley Continental GT did when it claimed the COTY title in 2004.

“The engine’s fat torque curve is as satisfying as the vehicle’s opulent interior, a padded luxury cocoon that ensconces its occupants in leather, wood, and carbon trim, as well as lots of tasteful metallic details to delight the eye. The rear seats are essentially useless, but the front chairs invite day-long drives without fanfare or fatigue. Our judges recognized the Bentley Continental GT and GTC as the quintessential grand tourers, thanks to the combination of power and agility matched by the comfort and capacity of a luxury sedan. That car’s signature is its twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter power plant producing 650 hp and even more torque to all four wheels, taking the more than 5,000-pound GT to a top speed of 208 mph.”

Naming the Bentley Continental GT S Car of the Year in 2023, the editors cited the Continentals’ rich history and continuing excellence.

 “Would they show us how to solve the same Continental equation with four fewer cylinders while shaving a year of ivy-league college tuition off the MSRP? They would! And if you like your motoring pleasure delivered in quilted-leather finery, then the Continental GT S and GTC S may be the best-kept secrets to come from England since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle talked to Oprah.”

“Coupe or convertible, the latest Continental GT combines bold sports styling with an agile drive, resulting in a luxury grand tourer with a thrilling edge. Instantly recognizable, thanks to its dark exterior detailing, this S iteration is a leaner, meaner take on the Continental GT.
