The Continental GT V8 S’ Beluga Gloss styling informs the lower body, as do 20-inch open-spoke Design alloy wheels, featuring red-painted brake callipers. A lowered sports suspension brings an assertive bearing to the car. Gleaming fender vents add an extra level of sophistication, tracing a line between front and rear wheels. The back of the vehicle is characterised by twin figure-of-eight tailpipes, LED lights trimmed with chrome and the ‘winged B’ emblem that also adorns the bonnet. The imposing front-end is dominated by a gloss-black radiator grille that is flanked by Bi-Xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps.
The opulence of the cockpit is readily apparent from the perfectly-lacquered Piano Black wood veneer. Polished metal and choice leather only adds to the distinct air of luxury. The centre console and dashboard subtly echo the ‘winged B’ emblem of the marque, which itself can be found elsewhere, most notably on the steering wheel and headrests. The cabin can be personalised with a choice of 17 colour schemes, from Pearlescent to Satin Paint. Among the interiors’ many distinguishing features is a knurled sports gear lever.
The Continental GT V8 S’ full-bodied roar is supplied by a 4.0-litre twin turbo-charged V8 engine that delivers as much as 520bhp and up to 680Nm of torque at 1,700rpm. The car moves at quite a lick too, travelling from 0-60mph in just 4.3 seconds and is capable of a maximum speed of 192mph. Variable displacement technology ensures that all eight cylinders are only used when needed so that, typically, four cylinders are used. However, when the full complement is in operation, they produce an exhilarating driving experience.
An eight-inch full-colour touchscreen sits at the heart of the centre console. This is your gateway to all the mapping information you could possibly need, as well as real-time traffic data, places of interest and more.
Enjoy the Bentley Continental GT V8 S’ premium audio system supplied by Naim. Music is channelled through 11 Balanced Mode Radiator Speakers to deliver a clean, rich and accurate sound that fully harnesses the cabin’s superlative acoustics. Listen to your favourite tunes with a six-CD changer or choose from a wide variety of DAB radio stations.
Alternatively, you can plug-and-play iPods, MP3 players and SD cards. Bluetooth connectivity enables you to stream music too, and allows you to keep in touch with the outside world without the need to remove your hands from the steering wheel.
The Continental GT V8 S delivers an extremely stable ride, even at high speeds, but a range of safety features are included to offer further protection. Four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System ensures that any particular wheel does not lock under brake pressure, ensuring the car can still turn.
Airbags are in place all around the cabin and child seat anchors offer extra security for younger occupants. Tyre Pressure Monitoring System constantly analyses your tyres and relays any significant fluctuations to you via the display screen.
