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.
