THe finest materials from around the world: Making the new continental gt
The Continental GT showcases Bentley’s unrivalled expertise in the authentic use of materials, from the highest-quality natural leathers, to rare, sustainable sourced veneers. We celebrate the Continental GT by highlighting some of the best materials sourced from around the world.
Wheels From Japan
The new 22” alloy wheel for the Continental GT is expertly forged and flow formed in Japan creating a lightweight wheel with an intricate 3D spoke design. The wheel is also hand polished in Japan to highlight accent areas of the wheel that traditional wheel manufacture cannot achieve.
Leather From Germany
Each Continental GT interior is crafted from nine bull hides sourced from the Bavarian region of Germany, stitched together with 2.8 km of thread to create the sumptuous interior cabin. Chosen carefully and crafted with precision and pride, leather hides contribute enormously to the sense of comfort and refinement in every Continental GT.
Koa Wood Veneer From Hawaii
Bentley’s wood experts go to great lengths to find the finest veneers in the world. A new, contemporary veneer has been introduced for the Continental GT: Koa. Noted for its elegant tones and straight grain, Koa has long been used in its native Hawaii in the construction of surfboards and guitars.
Alcantara From Italy
The Alcantara featured within the interior cabin of the Continental GT is also used in the fashion and furniture industries, sourced straight from Italy this textile creates an experience both aesthetic and tactile for the customer of the world’s definitive Grand Tourer.
Display Clock From Switzerland
The Continental GT display clock features Bentley’s signature diamond pattern and wings emblem, sourced from the home of the finest mechanical timepieces, Switzerland.
