Jon Jones treats himself to Bentley Continental GT

Jon Jones treats himself to Bentley Continental GT
October 4th 2011

The UFC is the world’s premier mixed martial arts competition and its title belts are revered by every fighter around the world.

Holding one of those belts is an honour that only a few can ever hope to achieve and to be a UFC champion is reward in itself - but the money isn’t bad either.

Underlining that point is Jon Jones, the light-heavyweight champion who defended his belt for the first time last month with a submission win over Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.

He has purchased himself a top of the range Bentley as a reward for his efforts and has posted some pics, which you can drool over here, via his Twitter account:

 

 




The Bentley Continental GT is a flagship car from the luxury English car manufacturer Bentley and retails in the US at a starting price of $189,900. There have been just 46,000 made since 2002, which means you are unlikely to see them very often unless you live in Las Vegas, London or Dubai.

Some details for the car lovers among you: The 2012 Bentley Continental GT has received some upgrades from previous models, including a “discreet facelift” which includes a new aluminium boot lid and front wings, LED headlamps, a new front grille and minor rear design changes.

Under the hood, the car is powered by a revised 6-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine that outputs 567bhp and 700Nm of torque. With a top speed of 318 km/h, the new 2012 Bentley Continental GT is able to get from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.
