The Bentley Continental GT V8 S


Overview

The dominant bonnet line, prominent matrix grille and twin large inner headlamps confirm its pedigree but the Continental GT V8 S Convertible has its own distinct character. And one that exudes refined luxury.

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 twin-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.

Model Features

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.

Exterior Design

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.

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.

Engineering

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 521 bhp (389 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).

Suspension

Lowered sports suspension (by 10mm), revised damping with increased spring and bush rates (front and rear) and uprated anti-roll bars all combine to improve agility, body control and cornering, while the recalibrated steering provides enhanced feedback and feel.

The Lower Body Styling Specification features – front splitter, side sills and a rear diffuser – improve the car’s aerodynamics by reducing front-end lift, providing even greater stability at higher road speeds.
