New Continental GT V8 S Black Edition comes in coupe and convertible body styles

Bentley has recently revealed its new Continental GT V8 Black Edition featuring some of the external components from the outgoing Continental GT Speed.

The company said that even with its name, the Continental GT V8 Black Edition does not come as fully black. Instead, the black color is painted in different areas such as the window surrounds, door handles, headlamp bezels, lower bumper and grill frame. It also rides on a 21-inch wheels finished in high-gloss black.

As a way to apply a blacked out theme to the headlights, Bentley instead installed smoked front and rear lights to be cohesive with the car's Black Edition theme.
