Watch: Behind the Wheel of the 2019 Bentley Continental GT

The all-new 2019 Bentley Continental GT could be the sports car of your dreams. On this episode of “Behind the Wheel,” Jonny Lieberman is taking us around the Austrian Tyrol region heading to Italy.

This is the second generation since Volkswagen bought Bentley in the late ’90s. The familiar 6.0-liter twin-turbo W-12 is now good for 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Paired to the big W-12 is an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, a first for Bentley. It is able to travel 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds, Bentley estimates.

The new GT claims a curb weight of 4,950 pounds, about 175 pounds lighter than the car it replaces. This new 2019 Bentley Continental GT will start at around $220,000 when it makes its way to car dealers in the spring of 2019.
