With a lively V8 engine delivering irresistibly dynamic performance, accompanied by the sound of its uniquely emotive burble, the new Bentley Continental GT V8 offers a truly engaging driving experience. Combine this with elegant design, contemporary craftsmanship and seamless technology, and you have a grand tourer that makes every journey breathtaking.
Here at Bentley Manchester we are proud to offer you the opportunity to experience the Bentley Continental V8. Available in coupe or convertible the Brand New Continental V8 is a step-change in technology and a truly stunning design language, the new Continental is unmatched in its class. This Bentley GT coupé is the quintessential grand tourer – phenomenally powerful, beautifully designed and exquisitely crafted.
The new Continental GT features clean, superformed lines and a wide, low body, evoking a sense of speed and presence. On unlocking the car, a pre-programmed sequence of exterior lighting welcomes you. To complement the car’s striking interior design, the interior mood lighting (fitted as standard) can be configured to your preference. With lighting strips created to accentuate the car’s key design lines, you can choose vibrant or muted settings in seven colours, as well as backlighting the treadplates in your chosen colour.
Four driving modes are accessible at the turn of a dial. Comfort optimises the chassis and drivetrain for luxurious cruising, while Sport mode retunes the engine for a more dynamic response – with the variable exhaust valve adjusting the character of the exhaust note to match. The Bentley mode provides the optimum combination of Sport and Comfort, while a Custom mode allows you to configure your own settings for future use.
In the engine itself, high-pressure direct injection has been employed alongside port injection, allowing the engine to switch seamlessly between the two, depending on which is most efficient in any given situation. Along with a raft of fuel innovations, it ensures that emission levels are among the best in its class, while also maximising range.
The new Continental GT can be commissioned with stunning dual veneers, in which the natural grain of wood is contrasted with clean, minimalist Grand Black, the two finishes separated by a Chrome Pinstripe – a 3mm strip of polished chrome, tracing a ring around the cabin. Alternatively, there is a choice of nine single veneers, including new High Gloss Carbon Fibre. Any of these can be enhanced by the same Chrome Pinstripe used in the dual veneers (except Carbon Fibre).
The elegant, wide centre console can be commissioned with a sleek finish inspired by the Côtes de Genève finish used inside mechanical wristwatches.
New to Continental GT is a panoramic fixed glass sunroof, which has an interior blind in Alcantara, which matches the headliner colour. Explore this new option on the Bentley Configurator.
The beautiful new piano-finish paint process is applied to each new Continental GT by the craftsmen and women at the Bentley factory in Crewe, working alongside the very latest technology in robot paint systems to provide an unrivalled level of detail.
An impressive range of standard and optional colours are available, and if you are looking for a special colour which is unique to you, Mulliner are able to work with you to create something truly bespoke.
