Bentley has expanded the options list for the Continental GT coupe and convertible, with new personalisation options and equipment.

Upgrades include a choice of new colours, a new style steering wheel and the ability to specify a panoramic glass roof on the V8-engined GT Coupe, as well as the W12.

The British luxury car maker has confirmed it will add three colours to its current paint options, these now include Viridian, Patina and Snow Quartz. With the addition of the panoramic glass roof there are now said to be around 10 billion variations that a customer can personalise to their requirements.

Viridian is described as being a modern take on the traditional British Racing Green, while Patina is said to be inspired by the beautiful atmosphere and aura of polished metals with blends of champagne and silk. Snow Quartz is a modern white three-layer pearlescent paint which Bentley says creates a simple and fresh silhouette.

Bentley has also confirmed that the new steering wheel will be a standard addition, with a revised shape and profile. The new wheel includes capacitive sensing throughout the wheel rim, allowing the steering wheel to detect when it is being held – a vital new safety measure for the car’s semi-autonomous driver assistance systems, where new legislation stipulates that drivers must keep in contact with the wheel at all times when the car is moving.
