The New Bentley Continental GTC is one seriously compelling machine, even for the connoisseur. Everything about it, from its stance to its performance, is stellar.
While you’re probably not too concerned about its otherworldly ability to shrink long distances into short, pleasant episodes — especially if you’re just considering exotic car rental in Miami — it is still one seriously amazing automobile.
If you’re looking into a Bentley rental in Miami, the Continental GTC should be at the top of your list. There are many things you should know about this car, but we’ll just cover the top 5.
1. It’s Effortless
There’s no situation in which the Continental GTC will be caught out. Bentley’s engineers managed to make a dual-clutch transmission feel more like a traditional torque converter automatic when smoothness is required.
But that same DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) technology enables razor-sharp shifts when you require an instant response.
And since the torque peak is broad and begins at an off-idle 1,350 rpm, the Continental GTC’s W-12 is never not ready for action. One word for it is “relentless,” and if it weren’t a Bentley and so silky smooth, “savage” might even be apt, at least if you keep your foot in it.
But it’s not just about how the Bentley handles its power. It’s about the entire package. This car is a Bentley, so it’s not just competent; it’s deliciously so. Everything you touch, see, feel, or hear is somehow the best of the best, whether in concept or execution. And as you drive this car, you get the unmistakable feeling that it’s no coincidence.
If you’re going to rent a Bentley in Miami, get ready for plenty of power. Since we are indeed discussing a Bentley and not something inferior, it’s not some barely controlled fire-breathing monster. It’s more an overwhelming force of nature, like an incoming wave fed by a winter storm.
Dip your right toe into this pool of enchanted horsepower, and you’re going to know you’ve encountered something special. And addictive.
Continental GTC’s 6.0-liter W-12 engine is fed with both direct and port injection, and it produces 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Those are rather large numbers for an automobile and would still be large for an 18-wheeler.
Suffice it to say that this car can gather itself for a sprint in a way that belies its appearance and mass. If you’re looking for the ultimate luxury car rental in Miami, you can’t do better.
Power can be scary if it isn’t under control. There is no such danger here. This Bentley’s chassis is adept at handling its assigned duties.
First of all, every single one of those ponies is routed securely through all four wheels. And the 22” wheels are big for a reason: they need to house the largest discs ever installed on a production car — 16.5 inches upfront. They say that with great power comes great responsibility, and there’s plenty of both on offer in the Continental GTC.
Whether you’re on a straight or piloting through a long sweeper, you can bury the throttle with virtual impunity. This car simply hooks and goes, no question. The connection between the driver and the road is nearly telepathic.
This ride is one brutally fast yet elegant GT car. The fact that you can drop the top makes it even better.
Suppose that you’re bored with the ubiquitous electro-gadgets on offer in every car these days. In that case, you can rotate the GTC’s 12.3-inch touchscreen into hiding at the press of a button, revealing a beautifully handcrafted panel with actual physical dials showing real analog data.
It is whisper quiet and velvety smooth. Bentley has finely balanced ride comfort with body control, and you’ll feel positively spoiled by this car’s interior. All the materials, be they milled aluminum or hand-laid walnut veneers, are of the quality you would expect to find in a Swiss watch.
5. It Makes You Feel Special
This Bentley still makes you feel special at a walking pace, simply cruising the boulevard with the top down. You don’t need to tap into its vast power reserve to feel how substantial it is, how well built it is, and how hushed the experience of driving it can be.
Yes, you can bury your right foot and let that phenomenal power press you into those fine and supple leather seats, but you can also relax, unwind, and let it turn heads for you. Everything you touch in this car is superb. And that exceptional impression carries through each tactile sensation, delighting the senses and exhilarating the mind.
