Continental GTC V8

Weatherproof in winter, openly desirable all year round.

Closely related to its thrilling V8 coupé relative, the new Bentley Continental GTC V8 has a strong character all of its own. The matrix grille, imposing bonnet and twin headlights are pure Bentley, while the low stance and wide track hint at the capabilities of this four-wheel drive supercar. At a glance, the V8 model is distinguished by a red enamel winged ‘B’ badge, a gloss-black grille with chrome surround, a three-air-intake bumper, and unique ‘figure of eight’ exhaust pipe design.

The new Bentley Continental GTC V8 is far more than a high-powered convertible – it’s a true open Grand Tourer with the refinement of a coupé when the roof is closed.

Overview

Bentley Continental GTC V8

The new Bentley Continental GTC V8 is elegant and very contemporary – the front wings are shaped using aluminium Super Forming technology, and the signature round twin headlights are ringed by jewel-like LED lights. At the rear, floating LED lights draw the eye to the extremities of the shape, underlining the broad sporting stance.

Inside, traditionally crafted wood, leather and knurled metal are used across a bold modern design. Ahead of you, the symmetrical fascia is inspired by the Bentley winged ‘B’ symbol, and the super-comfortable new ‘cobra-head’ front seats can be specified with a clever neck warming system.

Unique to the new Bentley Continental GTC V8 is the Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer, which gives the interior a 21st century handcrafted feel.

Technology

Bentley Continental GTC V8

Press the start button – particularly with the roof lowered – and the unique character of the new Bentley Continental GTC V8 becomes clear. A deep engine note greets you from the advanced 4.0-litre V8, hinting at its 187mph capability. A new eight-speed transmission is perfectly matched to the engine, delivering much faster gear changes and contributes to the 40 percent efficiency gain achieved by the new V8. With eight ratios to choose from, the new Bentley Continental GTC V8 is always in the right gear as you drive.

Beyond the potent V8 engine and perfectly matched transmission, there is plenty of advanced technology. A compact, powerful infotainment system with 15GB of storage for music links to iPod, MP3, in-car six-disc CD changer, or an SD card, and there is a touchscreen navigation system with 30GB hard disc drive providing instant access to a whole continent of mapping.
