Extending the Bentley Continental family, the new GT V8 S and GT V8 S Convertible provide further choice for V8 customers by bringing enhanced excitement to the brand. Developed to be positioned between the already popular V8 models and the more powerful W12 cars, the V8 S models offer a somewhat new sporting signature for the Bentley Continental range with enhanced style, performance and dynamic features with the desire of competing in the popular S sub-segment.
The Continental GT V8 S ups the ante with an extra 21bhp and a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds to present a sportier, performance-focused S version of the Continental GT and GTC V8. Power from the new twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine customary in the all-wheel drive Continental GT and GTC S models has increased bhp from 500bhp in the standard V8-powered engine, to an impressive 521bhp. Top speed has also intensified by 4mph on both cars, while torque is boosted from 15lb ft to 502lb ft.
