Continental GT V8 S Convertible
The engine of the Continental GT V8 S makes an incredible sound – one best enjoyed with the top down.
Complete with a redesigned front spoiler and rear diffuser, for a sportier and more conﬁdent stance, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible is an irresistible proposition for every journey.
But this supercar performance doesn’t mean a compromise on comfort. Thanks to the four-layer construction of its retractable roof, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible accommodates up to four people with the hood up in the same unﬂustered reﬁnement as its hard-topped sibling.
Designed for a sporting look, whether the hood is up or down, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible looks every bit as sophisticated as any convertible Bentley – but with the added edge that comes from a series of S model exterior details.
The look is complemented by 20” open-spoke wheels and red painted brake callipers. Beluga gloss door mirrors to match the lower body details including the lower front bumper, while dark tint lamps to the front and rear are options that add additional edge to the exterior aesthetic.
Beneath the bonnet of the Continental GT V8 S Convertible beats a monstrous heart: a 4.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine generating 680 Newton metres (502 lb.ft) of torque.
Despite its muscular powerplant, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible is remarkably efficient with CO2 emissions at a mere 258 g/km, due in no small part to the use of variable displacement.
Additionally, for the ultimate in efficient performance, the engineering team introduced hot-side inside (HSI) technology: in essence, a method of reducing both energy wastage and engine weight by mounting the turbochargers within the ‘V’ of the V8 cylinder arrangement. The result of all this innovation is a Continental GT V8 S Convertible with improved power performance, with no penalty to fuel economy or emissions.
When you sit beneath the four-layer insulated roof, it’s easy to forget you’re in a convertible, such is the quality of its construction.
A shorter centre console gives rear seat passengers even more space, while the elegant Continental instrumentation gives the impression of an aeronautical cockpit. Piano Black veneers feature as standard throughout the interior, with a range of wood species, including Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer, available as options.
