New Continental GT V8 S
From the glorious roar as it explodes into life to the rich purr emitted at rest by its charismatic 4.0 litre V8 engine, the sporty new Continental GT V8 S comes with an agility you’ll feel around every hairpin.
The new front bumper incorporates an inverted aerofoil-like design, instantly evoking the passion and drama of the racetrack, while a new and innovative lip-style spoiler adorns the rear, providing greater bite in every turn. To herald these changes, a dynamic and newly designed Bentley ‘B’ fender vent is located behind each front wheel.
Inside, 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.
The Continental GT V8 S has Beluga lower body styling and 20” wheels, which create a clear statement of intent. A recalibrated engine, revised stability control and an uprated chassis complete the picture, delivering the kind of thrilling drive you expect from a sports car with Bentley’s racing DNA.
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.
Even before the engine bursts into life, the distinctive styling makes a single-minded statement. 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.
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 Continental GT V8 S brings even greater power, more exhilarating handling and a whole new level of sophistication to keep the Continental GT V8 head and shoulders above the competition.
