The appeal of the stylish, luxury grand tourer is enhanced with the
introduction of the new, sporting Continental GT V8 S. Available as both a coupe
and convertible, the new GT V8 S models bring added excitement to the
Continental range with lowered and retuned sports suspension, sharper steering,
dramatic 'S' signature styling cues and a distinctive soundtrack from the
uprated V8 engine.
These two new models expand the Continental family and provide an even more engaging driving experience from Bentley's already renowned 4-liter twin-turbo V8 powertrain. The new Continental GT V8 S Coupe and Convertible will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Show on 10th September, 2013.
Deliveries of the new Continental V8 S Convertible start in early 2014.
For the 2014 Continental GT V8 S Convertible, the design of the Continental takes a more dramatic direction and its enhanced road presence is clear before a wheel is turned. The lowered suspension provides a more sleek and purposeful stance, complemented by unique, lower-body styling including a sharp front splitter, discrete side sills and subtle rear diffuser finished in Beluga gloss.
In common with the Continental GT W12, the GT V8 S models are available in the full palette of 17 paint colors, of which seven vibrant hues are specifically recommended by Bentley Design to match the sporting character of the new model. Of these, two shades (Kingfisher Blue and the new Monaco Yellow) are signature colors for the GT V8 S.
The cabin of the Continental GT V8 S Convertible presents a thoroughly modern interpretation of Bentley luxury in which color and tone offer further appeal to the senses.
Available with a range of striking duo-tone interiors, customers may also select from the full range of seventeen hide colors. The GT V8 S coupe also features a unique contrast centre-stripe for the hide-trimmed roof lining, matched to the color of the main hide. Contrast stitching throughout, including to the steering wheel, is also available as an option.
