    forgot to add an important word .... 'wholesale'

    personally i think that number is more like $30-$35

    my completely uneducated guess would be high 30s to low 40s wholesale if the car is in good shape. That’s on the upper end of the mileage scale for a 2012 Bentley. Dealer price in the 50s.

    i think that is about right.
    kbb comes up with a dealer price of $55k, and i am taking $20k off for wholesale, and get to $35k.
    there are no comparables out there with that many miles so hard to tell, but i think that is about right for the first year of the second iteration of the gt, now an 8 year old car.

    30-50k depending on a number of variables, but I'd say 40K is the sweetspot wholesale.

    i went to the local bentley dealer to ask their opinion.

    their first statement was that they would not accept it as a trade in - or they would simply price it to go straight to auction.

    then they said 35-45 depending on other conditons.

    interestingly, they said that this was the age and mileage that people unload since all the emissions equipment has to be warrantied for 7 years/80k miles, so at this point, these components usually start failing.

    i guess there is a price for everything.....

    i went to the bentley dealer in naples on saturday and asked the same question....
    first answer was $35-40.
    then they reiterated that they would not take it in trade and simply price it straight to auction - ie $35k

    so that seems to be consensus now.

    their other comment was that at this age and mileage the air suspension starts to fail.....$3k per corner.... not fun.

    Car and Driver did a good piece about a year ago about the values of these older luxury cars (like the Continental GT).
    They brought up a great point:
    While you can buy a 2005 CGT for new Honda Accord money now, you need to remember that in the car's mind, it's still a $200K car, and requires the parts and maintenance of a $200K car, NOT a $30K car. The classic "I can afford the car but I can't afford to keep it running"
