This is the Bentley Continental GT generation 2008/10, a sports coupe that until 2012 was the fastest production car in the world. Luka Modric has traveled in it since he was a Tottenham player. Will it be his amulet? Slide and find out more!
Since his time at Tottenham, Luka Modric was already appreciated as a player with all the conditions to become a football star. His transfer to Real Madrid was key for his name to remain at the top of football, achieving countless titles and individual distinctions. During all that time, he had a faithful companion that never left him, a Bentley Continental GT.
The sports car was acquired while playing for Tottenham. It is unknown exactly when, but it is speculated that the Bentley corresponds to the 2008/10 generation. Until 2012 it was the fastest production car in the world, until it was widely surpassed by the Bugatti Veyron.
This car is known as a two-door coupe with a highly distinctive style. Its 4.8 meters long managed to catapult it as Bentley’s most popular vehicle, becoming a very recurring option among speed lovers.
Under its hood rests a 12-cylinder engine located in w that provides a power of 560 hp and a maximum torque of 650 Nm at 1600-6100 rpm. These numbers allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and obtain a top speed of 318 km/h.
All these numbers collaborate so that the cost of Luca Modric’s Bentley Continental GT is not at all accessible. “El Pony” had to spend 198,000 euros more than 10 years ago to acquire it. Of course, it was a purchase that he continues to take advantage of to this day, since he uses it to attend Real Madrid training sessions, even over the Audi they gave him. In Spain this car is already all the rage, because it is believed to be the team’s lucky charm.
