New Continental GT V8
The new Bentley Continental GT V8 makes every journey breathtaking. It combines sleek design, contemporary craftsmanship, seamless technology and a powerful V8 engine that delivers irresistibly dynamic performance, accompanied by a uniquely emotive burble. This is a truly engaging driving experience.
A dynamic, modern look
The design of this exciting car reflects its agile performance. The sharp, superformed lines of the new Continental GT are enhanced with sleek, stylish details, including elliptical quad tailpipes, a discreet V8 badge placed on the fender and striking 20” ten-spoke painted alloy wheels with the spokes arranged in symmetrical pairs.
Inside the car, a single hide colour of your choosing is used throughout the cabin for a look that combines elegance with simplicity. This is perfectly complemented by the contemporary Crown Cut Walnut veneer as standard. Additional hide colours and colour splits are also available, as well as an extended range of veneers, which can be made even more stunning by adding a sleek Chrome Pinstripe. New to Continental GT V8 as an alternative to veneer is the option of High Gloss Carbon Fibre.
An exhilarating drive
With twin-scroll turbochargers located inside the V of the engine, the new Continental GT V8 delivers breathtaking acceleration, taking you from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) and on to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)**, accompanied by the irresistible burble of the Bentley V8 engine, which is especially intense in Sport mode.
The animated driving experience keeps you completely in touch with the road, thanks to superlatively balanced weight distribution that enhances traction and stability as you accelerate. A passive chassis with a preset balance between ride comfort and handling ensures exceptionally confident cornering, or for truly exquisite control you can opt for Bentley Dynamic Ride, an innovative 48V Electronic Active Roll Control system that continuously adjusts the roll bars to optimise both handling and ride comfort in any conditions.
Technology for every journey
The variable displacement technology used within the V8 engine closes the valves on four of the cylinders when it detects a light throttle opening, seamlessly switching back to all eight whenever needed without the driver even noticing. This increases efficiency without compromising on performance, resulting in an impressive range of 865 km.
