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.

MODEL FEATURES


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 4.8 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.

EXTERIOR DESIGN


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 super forming technology. Distinctive large, close-set inner headlamps are ringed by jewel-like LED lights. At the rear, Bentley’s signature ‘floating’ LED lights draw ones eye to the extremities of the car, emphasising its low, wide stance. The V8’s character is emphasised by the gloss black mesh grille, ringed in bright chrome and by the dark rear valance with those tell-tale figure-of-eight exhaust tailpipes. The 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.

Powered by a 4 litre V8 engine, from the distinctive backbeat of its eight cylinders at idling speed to the glorious snarl of full-throttle acceleration, the Continental GT V8 offers an exhilarating, involving and passionate route to Bentley Continental ownership. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission transmit its power to the road with unshakable precision.

This is a Bentley that can both stir the soul or calm the spirit, according to the mood of the driver or the conditions.

INTERIOR DESIGN


Traditional crafts of wood, leather and knurled metal are expressed in a crisp and modern design language to capture the sporting, youthful spirit of the V8. Nowhere is this more evident than the new steering wheel, complete with redesigned paddle-shift gear selectors for a more engaging drive. The symmetrical fascia was inspired by the Bentley winged ‘B’, and features a 'flying buttress' centre stack and open illuminated stowage. The shorter centre console creates extra space in the rear, emphasising the sporting feel of the cockpit. Storage has been redesigned to offer even more space.

CRAFTSMANSHIP


The knife-edge crease lines down the front wings of the Continental GT are made using a technique called superforming, where 5083 grade aluminium is heated to 500ºC and shaped around a die using air pressure. No other process enables such a complex panel to be created with such crisp sharp lines and without seams or joins.

OPTIONAL SPECIFICATION PACKS


The workshops at Crewe, it is said, are the very opposite of mass production. Stand at the end of the line for a day, a week or a month and you won't see two identical Bentleys emerge at the end of their painstakingly loved journey through the works. But a Bentley owner can never have too much choice and, in that spirit, the design team at Crewe has put together the Optional Specification Packs.

Select one of them, and your Continental GT V8 will feature 21" 6 twin-spoke alloy wheels in a menacing black. Inside, the sporting theme intensifies, with seats, door panels, and rear three-quarter panels upholstered in quilted, perforated hide, the dramatic effect complemented by indented hide sun visors, a knurled sports gear lever and drilled alloy foot pedals. An indented hide headlining is included in the case of the GT V8, while embroidered Bentley emblems on the seat headrests are offered with both models at no extra cost.
