For Sale: 2005 Bentley Continental in Anaheim, California

Vehicle Description

This Bentley Continental GT looks as if it were in a time capsule for the last 15 years and we just opened it up for you. Sitting in the drivers seat is like taking it back to 2005 and remembering what a great car they designed for the most luxurious feel that you could ever imagine. with only 14k miles it is barely broken in yet serviced up to the gills. Come and see for yourself just what a beautiful car Bentley made but only spend a fraction of what the 1st owner did. Large and sturdy? The Bentley's platform is shared with the all-steel VW Phaeton sedan. The GT's bodywork is shortened 9.9 inches, lowered 2.4 inches, widened 0.6 inch, and perched on a 5.3-inch-shorter wheelbase. The body shell is so rigid that if you clamped the rear of the GT in a giant vise and hung a second GT (weighing 5250 pounds ) from one of the front wheels, the structure would twist only one degree. The cowl is sedan high, and the seats are well off the floor-for easy entry, exceptional visibility, and ample space for four adults and their luggage. And the engine? Would six liters divvied up among 12 cylinders force-fed by two turbos and two intercoolers good for 552 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque qualify as huge and powerful in your book? We can't comment on reliability except to say that in pursuit of same, a Continental GT was run for 18,500 miles at 175 mph at the Nardo test track in Italy. The W-12 engine (picture two VR6s on a common crank) is based on the powerplant used in the Audi A8 , but it gets unique low-compression pistons to handle boost levels of between 4.4 and 10.2 psi huffed up by twin 3K Warner turbochargers. That pressure arrives instantly and imperceptibly, providing peak torque at just 1600 rpm. The engine is hand-assembled at the Bentley factory in Crewe.
