With a lively V8 engine delivering irresistibly dynamic performance, accompanied by the sound of its uniquely emotive burble, the new Bentley Continental GT V8 offers a truly engaging driving experience. Combine this with elegant design, contemporary craftsmanship and seamless technology, and you have a grand tourer that makes every journey breathtaking.
This stunning car takes the sharp, superformed lines of the new Continental GT and adds sleek contemporary details that reflect its agile performance. Elliptical quad tailpipes hint at the potent engine sound, while a discreet V8 badge placed on the fender speaks to the exciting drive to come. Striking 20” ten-spoke painted alloy wheels, available only for the new Continental GT V8 coupé and convertible, have the spokes arranged in symmetrical pairs to make the already dynamic profile even more dramatic. Inside the car, a single hide colour is used throughout for a look that combines elegance with simplicity. You can choose from five exquisite colours, including Beluga and Cricket Ball – if you wish to explore a wider range of options, or add a secondary colour, there are, of course, many ways to personalise your car - read below to explore more.
Discover a truly captivating driving experience. With twin-scroll turbochargers located inside the V of the engine, the new Continental GT V8 is exceptionally responsive, delivering breathtaking acceleration accompanied by the irresistible sound of a Bentley V8 engine unleashing its immense power – which is especially intense in Sport mode. The result is a car that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) and take you to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)*tifying burble of the Bentley V8 engine particularly rewarding when the roof is down. Four Bentley driving modes allow you to adjust chassis and drivetrain settings to suit the road beneath you. The Comfort mode offers a refined ride that makes every journey a pleasure, the Bentley mode delivers the perfect balance between performance and refinement and the Custom mode allows you to calibrate the settings precisely as you like them.
The variable displacement technology used within the new Continental GT V8’s engine increases efficiency without compromising on performance. When the engine’s control microprocessor detects a light throttle opening, it closes the valves on four of the cylinders, seamlessly switching back to all eight whenever needed without the driver even noticing. The result is an impressive range of over 500 miles*.
