New Continental GT V8
Lighter and leaner than its larger siblings, the new Continental GT V8 is nonetheless every inch a Bentley, right down to the luxuriously redesigned cabin. Drive one and you’ll experience the raw power and unique roar from its 4-litre V8.
All-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission transmit its power to the road with unshakeable precision, making the GT V8 an exhilarating, involving and passionate entrance to Bentley ownership.
There is a lean and muscular look to the Continental GT V8 that's entirely in keeping with the powertrain beneath the bonnet. The Crewe styling team has created a Bentley coupé of elegantly tailored lines and muscular form, with a new bright chrome grille replacing the gloss back of the previous model - bringing it into line with the rest of the Continental range. Beautifully designed auto-fold mirrors mean even the practical necessities can be stunning.
But there's a darker side to this Bentley, and it can be summoned up by pressing the start button and bringing the advanced 4.0 litre V8 engine to life. Acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds attests to the power of the advanced 500bhp V8 engine, and with a potential range of over 530 miles between fill-ups you'll be able to spend some quality time enjoying the simple, modern feel of the handcrafted interior.
The Crewe styling team has created a Bentley coupé of elegantly tailored lines and muscular form, with the precise crease of the front wings shaped by Superforming technology. Distinctive large, close-set inner headlamps, ringed by jewel-like LED lights, sit either side of the new chrome grille. At the rear, Bentley’s signature ‘floating’ LED lights draw ones eye to the extremities of the car, emphasising its low, wide stance.
The new V8 features a red enamel winged ‘B’ badge on the bonnet, boot and wheel centres. For an even more dramatic look there’s an exclusive 21” wheel to accentuate the sporting character of the V8.
