A luxurious Bentley Continental GT has been recently spotted in England where it apparently went for a swim.
The vehicle in question is owned by a 65-year old lottery winner from Herefordshire, who has bought the car after winning 10 million USD back in 2008. The Bentley Continental GT had to be ditched after its driver tried to drive it through flood water in Tewkesbury. The luxurious car will probably need a makeover after the driver’s attempt to transform it into a boat has failed. The incident took place in Gloucestershire, England.
As a quick reminder, the Bentley Continental GT is a two-door grand touring coupe which was released back in 2003, replacing the previous Rolls-Royce based Continental R and T. The Bentley Continental GT is a re-bodied Volkswagen Phaeton, being powered by a 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine which is developing a total output of 560 HP at 6.100 rpm and has a peak torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) available between 1.600 and 6.100 rpm. The Torsen-based permanent all-wheel drive is standard and the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 318 km/h (198 mph).
