Reviewers from autocar have found:
Despite the 2273kg kerb weight, it’s a Continental – a car so popular it has been responsible for more than half of the 200,000 cars that Bentley has made in its entire history. It has a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine in its nose, driving to all four wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, with adaptive dampers and air springs.
  • Powerful engine
  • Impressive agility
  • Not the fastest
  • Not the most fun to drive

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
First generation Continental GT arrived in 2003, and a revised version arrived in 2011. The new version sits on a platform shared with the Porsche Panamera. The Continental GT is available with two engines: a 6.0 W12 and a 4.0-litre V8. There's also a Continental GT Convertible, boasting a fabric roof that can fold in just 19 seconds.
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Lacklustre handling

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
The GTC Speed gets the styling tweaks outlined above, plus the Mulliner pack (quilted hide seats, three-spoke multi-function wheel, knurled chrome gear lever) That comes at extra cost on the plain Jane model. Fettling that 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 (two narrow angle V6s on a common crank) doesn't come cheap. Factor in the suspension upgrade and, what the hell, it's £10k well spent.
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Impressive low-speed manners
  • Superb infotainment system
  • Not the most fun to drive
  • Seat backs are too firm

Reviewers from cnet have found:
Now more than ever, the Bentley Continental GT is a big coupe you'll want to drive. A more athletic chassis and one of the world's finest V8 engines really make this car come alive. The EPA rates the 2020 Continental GT V8 at 16 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined.
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Beautifully knurled switchgear and diamond-quilted leather
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Not as powerful as the W12

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
The Continental GT V8 also gets the Bentley Dynamic Ride active suspension system from the W12 model and the Bentayga SUV. In Sport mode, acceleration goes from quick to ferocious, and the suspension stiffens up appreciably. The V8 engine adds an extra layer of sensation to this stately coupe.
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Comfortable ride
  • Powerful infotainment tech
  • Lack of standard equipment
