Speaking about the introduction of the new Continental GT & GTC S lineup, Peter Smith, General Manager, Bentley Saudi Arabia, stated, "Bentley created the modern, luxury Grand Tourer (GT) segment in 2003 with the launch of the original Continental GT. The latest, third generation Bentley Continental GT remains the pinnacle luxury coupe in the world, blending spirited performance with the latest in cutting-edge technology. Now, with the arrival of the Continental GT and GTC S series, owners can choose to emphasise the sporting character of the 4.0-litre V8-powered Bentley Continental GT, thanks to a package of performance-focused design and engineering features."
