New Continental GT V8 and GTV8 Convertible
Bentley has confirmed that it will be introducing two new versions of the Continental GT and GT Convertible this year.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, England the new V8 models will be equipped with a new-generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged engine, which can speed from 0-60mph in just 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 198mph. The new models perfectly combine immense power with impressive fuel efficiency thanks to their thoughtful weight distribution and start-stop technology.
Both cars feature eye-catching 20-inch, 10-spoke painted alloy wheels, subtle V8 badging and an exquisite, handcrafted interior. The V8 models are more sculpted than ever, with stunningly sharp definition that turns heads on any road. Bentley offers seven standard bodywork colours, with extensive additional paint choices available. Both the GT V8 and GT V8 Convertible boast quad exhaust pipes and subtle V8 badging on the front wings.
The Convertible’s tailored roof can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds up to speeds of 30 mph. Seven fabric hood colours and eight roof lining colours are available to personalise the vehicle even further. Both models feature a newly designed neck warmer is integrated into the heated and vented Comfort Seats so driver and passengers can ride in comfort whatever the weather.
Exceptional handcrafted luxury continues throughout the models’ cabins, using the finest quality leathers and rare, sustainably sourced veneers. The V8 models feature a 10-speaker Bentley Audio system as standard, plus advanced, fully digital instrument panels and optional Bentley Rotating Display.
Outstanding driving dynamics are at the heart of both V8 models, featuring lightweight anti-roll bars for exceptional handling. The car’s air suspension further improves ride comfort, with the ability to change from sporting spring stiffness to luxury refinement depending on the mode selected. Electric Power Assisted Steering also provides increased response and stability. Both V8 models are offered with a wide range of driver focussed assistance features, including Active Lane Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Park Assist.
Customer deliveries are set to commence in the US in Q3, with availability for the rest of the world available from Q1 2020.
