The New Bentley Continental GT V8

View Inventory
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.

Design

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.

Performance

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)* 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 monitors the road conditions and adjusts the anti-roll bars to reduce body movement, optimising both handling and ride comfort in any situation. Whichever you choose, you’ll enjoy an astonishingly animated drive that keeps you completely in touch with the road.
This is a car that delivers impressive control. Considerably lighter than the previous Continental GT V8, its superlatively balanced weight distribution enhances traction and stability as you accelerate.

Technology

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*. Enjoy a wealth of My Bentley* services designed to make the journey smarter, safer and more convenient. Apple CarPlay® lets you control your iPhone® through the car’s touchscreen, and Satellite maps allows the navigation to display a photorealistic landscape. Private eCall notifies emergency services in a critical situation, while Perimeter alert warns you if your car moves out of a specified area. Find my car shows you where you parked your car through the My Bentley app, and Activate heating lets you heat the cabin remotely before you open the door.
