It’s no wonder why rappers and other assorted rich guys love the Bentley GT Continental. Besides being one of the most badass looking cars ever made, it’s basically a luxury apartment on wheels. Seriously, you could live in this thing, which with a price tag that would rival most people’s home mortgages might be a distinct possibility after you make the purchase. This wide bodied, low to the ground, beast will turn heads anywhere from Times Square to the Las Vegas strip. And the Bentley is more than just a pretty face. The power output has been raised to an insane 575 PS and 700Nm of torque; it has an 8-speed Quickshift transmission and goes from standstill to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. It also reaches a top speed of 197 mph which is mind blowing. Besides that it comes with an 8 inch touchscreen with navigation and the seats come with a built in massaging function. Now let’s take a look at some of the more detailed specs.
