The judges praised the GT Speed on its high level of performance and luxury, claiming it as “a quantum leap from the original", adding, “The four-wheel steering is what made all the difference in the world," and "This car sparks joy at every turn and every press of the gas pedal."

In the UK, the Continental GT V8 was praised by WhatCar? and was awarded Best High-End Coupé at the Car of the Year Awards 2022. WhatCar? said "the Continental GT’s combination of pace, pampering and presence simply can’t be matched. Could there be a more decadent way to get around - we seriously doubt it."

Whereas in Germany, the Continental GT was crowned with the luxury class category in Auto Motor und Sport’s long standing ‘Best Cars’ awards. Over 100,000 readers voted over 12 different categories and across a total of 386 models to decide the final outcome.
