GT V8 S coupe and convertible take center stage

Bentley expands its Continental line-up with the Frankfurt introduction of the new GT V8 S. The new model is available in coupe and convertible. Both models are powered by 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of 528 PS and 680 Nm of torque. With all the power, Bentley still maintains the luxury the brand is known for through exterior and interior features.

To match the twin-turbo V8 is an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and Bentley all-wheel drive system that ensures a smooth performance. The new Bentley coupe can go from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 309 km/h. Likewise, the convertible can speed to 100 km/h from a halt in 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 308 km/h. While its engine output has been increased, both models are still able to cover 805 km on a single tank of fuel.

Known for making premium performance sedans, Bentley assures people with effortless driveability, exquisite luxury and craftsmanship, sculpted design, and state-of-the-art technology. The car features luxurious leather and wood paired with advanced acoustic and electronic technologies such as a Touch Screen Remote, optional Rear Seat Entertainment suite, and full Wi-Fi connectivity.
