Overview

Bentley Continental GT V8

Bentley created the modern luxury Grand Tourer segment in 2003, with the launch of the first-generation Continental GT and, sitting at the core of the ground-breaking Continental GT line-up, the new V8 model offers customers a unique breadth of Grand Touring abilities.

Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, the Continental GT V8 combine driver-focussed performance with exquisite refinement and cutting-edge technology. It features 20-inch, 10-spoke painted alloys wheels, subtle V8 badging and a sublime, handcrafted interior.

Equipped with a new-generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged engine developing 542 bhp (550 PS) and 568 lb.ft (770 Nm) of torque, the GT V8 combines immense power with greater range, plus a characterful V8 burble though the stylish quad exhaust pipes.

The Continental GT V8’s innovative, luxurious interior offers unrivalled Grand Touring refinement. It seamlessly integrates natural materials such as the highest quality leathers and rare, sustainably sourced veneers into the finest handcrafted cabin.

Twenty-way adjustable leather seats set new industry standards in comfort and refinement, and are available in a monotone colour split on the GT V8. New Crown Cut Walnut adorns the V8 fascia and other areas, with the option of a variety of exquisite wood veneers. V8 models also feature a 10-speaker Bentley Audio system as standard pumping out a powerful 650 watts of entertainment.

The Continental GT V8 is equipped with front and rear hollow, lightweight anti-roll bars for exceptional handling. Combined with an advanced air suspension system, using three-chamber air springs, the blend of ride comfort and dynamic character is peerless. It has the scope to vary from sporting spring stiffness to luxury limousine refinement, depending on which mode is selected.

An Active All-Wheel Drive System varies the front-to-rear torque split dependent on the driving situation. The Continental GT V8 will use rear-wheel drive as much as possible during normal driving for optimum efficiency and dynamic performance.

Electric Power-Assisted Steering provides excellent feedback to the driver. It utilises a variable rack ratio, allowing increased response with higher steering angles to aid manoeuvrability whilst maintaining excellent stability at high speeds. The V8 models are offered with a wide range of driver assistance features, such as Active Lane Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Park Assist.
