As the Continental GT transitions to the 2021 Model Year, Bentley is introducing a couple of feature updates and three new paint options.
A panoramic glass roof similar to that found on the facelifted Bentayga and the new Flying Spur is now available on all Continental GT coupe models. Equipped with polarized glass, the sunroof reduces glare and allows for clearer view outside. An interior blind clad in Alcantara is operated electronically and matches the headliner colors.
At the same time, Bentley revised the standard steering wheel. The new design includes capacitive sensing throughout the rim of the steering wheel, allowing it to detect whether the drivers' hands are holding it. This complies with new legislation that stipulates driver contact with the steering wheel at all times when the car is moving during semi-autonomous driving.
Aesthetically, the new steering wheel is slightly more minimalist.
Bentley also added three new paint colors to expand the palette to 62 shades: Viridian, Patina, and Snow Quartz. For example, Viridian is a modern take on the traditional British Racing Green. It combines deep agate green with light green and blue undertones as well as flecks of amber and gold.
