New Continental GT Wins Double Gold at German Design Awards

The all-new Bentley Continental GT has won Gold in two key categories of the prestigious German Design Awards – one of the most highly respected design competitions in the world. The German Design Awards is organised by the German Design Council and honours the world’s best automotive design achievements. The Council was founded in 1953 and is one of the world’s leading design bodies.

The luxury Grand Tourer was named winner by a jury of independent experts in the categories for best ‘Exterior Premium Brand’ and best ‘Interior’. Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Great Britain, the third generation Continental GT has been launched to global acclaim. Blending the highest level of attention to detail and artistry with refinement and performance, it represents the very essence of the Bentley brand.

Commenting on the award-winning exterior, German Design Council judge, Jürgen Lewandowski said: “The jury was impressed by the muscular exterior design of the latest Continental GT, which has retained a classic elegance that made its predecessor so popular, yet is more sculptured and sharply defined.”

Presenting the jury’s verdict on the interior design of the Continental GT, Prof. Andrea Lipp-Allrutz added: “With the Continental GT they have managed to achieve a combination of tradition and the modern zeitgeist, not only in terms of technology but aesthetically too. Traditional craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology and aesthetics merge together to form an extraordinary design from this extraordinary brand.”

The all-new Continental GT profile is longer and lower than its predecessor, due in part to the positioning of the front wheels 135mm further forward. This has allowed the bonnet to be extended and the nose to be lowered, while the key signature lines of the original model still dominate, with ‘power lines’ travelling from the diamond-style headlights to the rear haunches.

Inside the Continental GT’s finely handcrafted cabin is a world of hidden delights. It is a showcase for Bentley’s unrivalled expertise in the authentic use of materials – from the highest quality natural leathers to rare, sustainably sourced veneers. The exquisitely styled dashboard is sculpted by long-flowing wings and includes the innovative and industry-first Bentley Rotating Display. Pillow knurling replaces mechanical knurling in some areas, for a softer, more refined feel to the switches and controls.

Stefan Sielaff, Bentley’s Director of Design, added: "To receive two such prestigious design awards says everything about the quality that our highly skilled designers delivered when creating the new Continental GT. It is a design based on a bold new vision that is still unmistakably Bentley."
