(Crewe, February 7, 2023) Bentley Motors is proud to announce that the Continental GT S range claimed ‘Car of the Year’ and top honors at the prominent competition for luxury vehicles, presented by Robb Report Magazine. More than 175 readers and judges of the esteemed magazine, along with its exceptional editorial staff, evaluated cars in five unique categories - looks, performance, luxury and comfort, utility, and intangible tiebreakers such as 'wow-factor' and collectability. At the conclusion of the two-part test with the coupe and convertible, held in California and Florida respectively in late 2022, the Bentley Continental GT S topped the field of more than 10 cars to win ‘Robb Report’s Car of the Year.’ 

“It’s fitting that both the Continental GT model and Robb Report’s Car of the Year are celebrating 20th anniversaries, as each have become benchmarks in their own right,” says Paul Croughton, Editor in Chief of Robb Report. “That Bentley has taken our top honor two years in a row reflects its commitment to excellence and our readership’s knowledge and experience with the finest cars in the world.” 

The result is the fourth overall win for Bentley since the contest’s inception, each year highlighting the Continental; the other accolades include the Continental GT in 2004, followed by the GT Convertible in 2007, and GT Speed in 2022. 

“Twenty years since its launch, Bentley’s Continental family continues to define the pinnacle of the Grand Touring segment,” Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors, states. “Consecutive wins for different models of Continental GT with Robb Report’s decisive Car of the Year judging is testament to the strength of the family, and the character and performance of the new S range. Extraordinary cars like these, independently recognized as being the best in the world, are at the core of Bentley’s record performance in 2022 despite so much turbulence in the industry.”

Announced in mid-2022, the GT S range showcases enhancements to the exterior design, interior specification and dynamic system, the new S range adjusts the Bentley grand touring recipe to center on the pleasure of driving – an opposing yet complementary emphasis to the “Wellbeing behind the Wheel” concept of the comfort-centric Azure range launch.

The S range is instantly recognizable due to the high-contrast dark exterior detailing offering a sleek, and striking take on the Continental GT. The lighter 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine gives the GT S models an explosive and sporting character amplified by Bentley Dynamic Ride - the advanced 48V electric active anti-roll control system first pioneered by Bentley. The GT S brings attitude, agility and depth to the grand touring recipe of the Continental GT.

“This car is still king of the hill”, said Mark Newman, RR1 Judge. “It has looks, power and comfort. You can drive it every day – and everywhere – and never be bored.”

The combination of striking design, performance and agility gives the Continental GT S and Continental GTC S strong appeal for all those who love powerful, extrovert performance cars.
