The Bentley Continental GT S has been awarded ‘Best Grand Tourer’ by Robb Report and will be recoginized in its ‘Best of the Best’ June/July issue. The Robb Report ‘Best of the Best’ awards has become the premier marker of achievement in the luxury industry for the past 35 years. In addition to cars, there are 15 other award categories celebrating luxury including yachts, art, design, food, wine and philanthropy.
“We are thrilled for the Contintential GT S to receive this recognition by Robb Report, and just months after being awarded Car of the Year” says Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Americas. “The Contintential GT has been the pinnacle of luxury performance for the last 20 years by providing its passengers with world-class performace, comfort and striking design.”
“We are very happy to recognize Bentley’s Continental GT S as our Best Grand Tourer amongst this year’s ‘Best of The Best’ winners. On behalf of Robb Report, we would like to congratulate Bentley on this prestigious award. The Continental GT S is an impeccable and unmatched fusion of true luxury and incredible performance,” said Luke Bahrenburg, President of Robb Report.
The third-generation Continental GT combines spirited, focused performance with handcrafted luxury and cutting-edge technology, to create the finest Grand Tourer ever produced. The GT S range retains the 542 bhp (550 PS) and 770 Nm 4.0-litre V8 engine that’s proved incredibly popular with customers around the world, delivering a time of just 4.0 seconds for 0-100 km/h (62 mph). For the GT S, the engine is enhanced by the fitment as standard of a Sports Exhaust to amplify the crossplane V8 beat.
“Bentley’s Continental GT S won Robb Report’s 2023 Car of the Year, so it’s no real surprise that it should be acknowledged in our Best of the Best awards as the benchmark for grand tourers,” said Robb Report’s Editor in Chief, Paul Croughton. “An unparalleled balance of interior artistry and comfort, brute power, and sublime performance.”
This award marks the fifth time that Bentley has been recognized by Robb Report. The previous accolades include, ‘2023 Car of the Year (Continential GT),’ ‘2022 Best Grand Tourer (Contiential GT Speed),’ ‘2022 Best Interior (Flying Spur Hybrid),’ 2017 SUV of the Year (Bentayga).
