BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT V8 S
The Beluga gloss Lower Body Styling Specification and a 10mm lower ride height add sleek, sporty lines to the Continental’s famously muscular stance. The front face and rear spoiler are complemented by new, all-bright fender vents, classically positioned behind the front wheels. The dramatic look is completed by exclusive 20” Open Spoke wheels and red painted brake callipers not to mention the striking gloss black radiator grille. The new option of dark tint front & rear lamps adds further visual impact whilst the (also-new) optional Beluga gloss door mirrors complement the finish of the Lower Body Styling Specification perfectly when specified on lighter shades of exterior finish.
Beneath the bonnet of the new Continental GT V8 S beats a monstrous heart: a 4 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, with the power to generate 520 bhp (388 kW / 528 PS @ 6,000 rpm). At 1700 RPM the GT V8 S generates 680 Nm of torque – even more than the 660 Nm achieved by its sibling, the GT V8. From a standing start the GT V8 S will reach 60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds, before climbing all the way to its top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h).
The interior cabin of the new Continental GT V8 S combines carefully selected leather hides and smooth metal surfaces to deliver a seductive blend of luxury and steely modernism - all beautifully lit by low energy, LED lights. The exquisite leather strikes a perfect balance with the knurled chrome details and the Piano Black veneer, lacquered and sanded up to eighteen times to produce a truly flawless finish. Speed is vital in a grand tourer. But when it comes to the Continental GT V8 S, style matters just as much.
A redesigned three-spoke steering wheel with paddle-shift gear selectors creates a more intense handling experience. While, the ﬂowing lines of straight-ﬂute upholstery tightly wrap the seats, conveying purposeful movement, even when the car is still.
With enough space inside to comfortably seat four adults and a boot that can accommodate all of your luggage, the Continental GT V8 S remains the definitive British grand tourer. But it’s the fearsome combination of limitless power and exhilarating handling of this luxury coupé that gives it the edge.
