Inside, the exterior’s contrast colour is picked up with corresponding colour accents of Pillar Box Red, Porpoise, Beluga, Cyber Yellow or Newmarket Tan respectively. These accent colours feature on the headlining and seats. Choose the optional Mulliner Driving Specification, and your chosen colour will be reflected in contrast stitching on the Mulliner Design seats and sports steering wheel.
The technical specification of the Black Edition is unchanged from the existing Continental GT V8S – and that’s a good thing. Tuned to deliver 520bhp, the V8S accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.5s). The result is an involving driving experience where the sound of the 4.0-litre V8 amplifies the feel-good factor. Complementary chassis changes include revised steering, ESC and damper tune for the V8S models, whilst the suspension is both lower and stiffer. As a result, GT V8S is eager to change direction and (thanks to the V8 S sports exhaust) even more rewarding to drive high into the upper reaches of the rev counter.
