The 2020 Bentley Continental GT Is a Technological Wonder


There’s a thin slice of Australia in Bentley’s new Continental GT. Australian-grown Eucalyptus timber is one of eight wood veneer options available to Bentley customers when personalizing the $422,600 coupe. New “diamond in diamond” quilted elements on the car’s seats and door cards are sewn with 712 stitches, and the dashboard sports a high-tech 12.3-inch screen. While all of that adds luxury to the car's design, it’s not what everybody is talking about. That would be the 92 computers and 2,300 electrical circuits controlling 100,000,000 lines of software code — 15 times more than a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. If you think you’d like to own a Bentley Continental GT, just be aware that the average monthly car payment will be in the neighborhood of $1,500.
