Bentley Continental GT Review

by Laly

The British brand Bentley unveiled this month their two new Continental V8 models, Bentley Continental GT V8 and Bentley Continental GTC V8.
The amazing V8 engine delivers up to 500bhp (507PS/373Kw) at 6000 rev/min, with a torque of 660Nm (487 lb ft), making this engine one of the most powerful engines in the high luxury sports car sector. Because of the remarkable levels of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions , this V8 engine can travel with a single tank of fuel over 500 miles.
In addition, this new V8 engine features low friction bearings, turbo charger packaging, thermal management, high pressure direct injection and energy recuperation via the charging system. You probably won’t be able to recognize this model of Bentley on the streets, thanks to this V8 engine that has a specific growl unlike the other Bentley models.

The efficient 4.0 litre engine combined with the turbochargers mounted in ‘V’ for a faster response and efficiency. In the new Bentley model, you will also discover the new, close-ratio, 8-speed transmission which offers 6% efficiency with ultra-fast shifts.
The sporting style of the Continental GT is given by the red enamel Bentley winged ‘B’ badges above the front grille, wheel centres and to the bootlid, by the twin ‘figure eight’ exhaust tailpipes, the three-segment lower bumpers with black air intakes, 20 inch alloy wheels as standard with an optional 21 inch six-spoke design, available in Diamond Black or Diamond Silver. This model comes in 7 colours offered in standard range.
The exterior might be sporty but the interior is contemporary with unique two-tone leather colour split, Eliade cloth headlining and pillar trim, dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer and a short centre console in place of W12 through-console.
Compared to other Bentley models, the Continental GT V8 provides the driver a unique diversity of both luxury and sport features, making every ride a special one.
