Bentley Unveils New £160,000 Continental GT With A Revolving James Bond Inspired Three-Way Dashboard



The most hi-tech Bentley ever has been launched with the world’s first three-way rotating dashboard that takes its inspiration from James Bond’s famous revolving number plate.

The main party trick is a three-way rotating dashboard that would look right at home in the next James Bond movie

The triangular device embedded in the main console can be switched at the flick of a button to cycle through smooth wood veneer, a 12.3-inch display and analogue dials.

Inspiration for the clever kit comes from the rotating number-plate gadget made famous on 007’s Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger.

It has 40 moving parts and uses two motors each with their own gearbox.

The rotating dash is just one element of the luxurious interior that also features a endless options list of veneers, crafted metalwork inspired by Swiss watches, leather trims and colours.

Under bonnet, the new Continental GT gets Bentley’s 6.0-litre W12 producing 626bhp.

That’s good enough for 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds and a stunning top speed of 207mph.
