[VIDEO] Bentley Continental GT taxi in Vietnam image

One of the hottest grand touring coupes out there, the Bentley Continental GT, has been spotted while it was being used as a taxi in Vietnam.

Asia is one strange continent where people are living either “down” or “up” and the video below is the best example in this case, where a luxurious Bentley Continental GT has been caught by camera while it was being used as a taxi, cruising among scooters and cheap cars. But who knows, maybe its owner has actually found a way of making some serious money, after all, what would prefer to use as a cab, cheap cars or a luxurious Bentley?

The video below was filmed in Vietnam’s city, Saigon, and we don’t actually know for sure if the luxurious Bentley Continental GT is used as a real taxi, or if this is part of some marketing strategies used by the automaker in Asia.

As a 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).

    Saigon or Ho chi Minh city is not the capital! It's however the largest city in Vietnam. The capital is Ha Noi.
