Bentley Continental GT V8 S goes official

The English manufacturer of luxury cars owned by the German Volkswagen Group since 1998 is presenting its last Continental version. As you may have already guessed it is Bentley that now introduces the Continental GT V8 S. As Bentley sales continued to increase and the Continental GT is accounting for over one-third of total sales, a new GT model is a natural way to follow.

As the result Bentley developed the ‘S’ line version that has sportier abilities than the regular V8 model vehicles. As if the V8 mill was not performance enough, the new upgraded engine now has, as the Bentley officials declare, a better efficiency and lower fuel consumption. This enables the model to get road autonomy of about 500 miles.The Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible is marketing as one of the fastest four seat convertibles.

The new GT V8 S now runs from a stand start to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and the coupe is capable to speed up the same distance with 0.2 seconds faster. All these performances are delivered by the uprated-efficiency V8 engine that outputs 521 bhp at 6000 rpm. The top speed is limited at 191 mph for the convertible and 192 mph for the coupe. Among the highlights, we can remind the superfast throttle response when sport mode is active that also held longer the gears for faster shifts. Combined to the close-ratio 8-speed column mounted paddle shift gearbox, the all wheel drive Bentley Continental GT V8 S models feature a perfect balance of luxury and sport power. The new model is soon to be released at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
