(Crewe, 6 September 2019) Bentley has announced new model year details for its ground-breaking #continentalgt, the GT #v8, and the introduction of new features.

A Panoramic Glass Roof is now available on the #continentalgt W12, whilst High Gloss Carbon Fibre technical finish for fascia and doors is now offered on all models.

Courtesy of its powerful #v8 petrol engine, the #continentalgt #v8 blends a lively and engaging drive with unparalleled levels of luxury and cutting-edge technology.

The #v8 model has recently launched on Bentley’s car configurator, where customers can explore the vast array of options available to build a truly unique car matching perfectly individual tastes, needs and lifestyle. Often regarded as one of the most configurable cars available, the #continentalgt has 7 billion different configurations possible alone. 

Giving a new perspective on the occupants’ Extraordinary Journey whilst illuminating the exquisite craftsmanship of the Bentley’s cabin, a Panoramic Glass Roof is now offered as a cost option – starting at £3,150 - on the #continentalgt Coupe W12.       

The sunroof is equipped with polarised glass that reduces glare allowing the passenger a clearer view of their surroundings, and an interior blind that is electronically operated from the console for when they wish to feel cocooned by the luxurious cabin of their #continentalgt. The blind is clad in Alcantara® that matches one of the 15 headliner colours available from the #bentley palette.

A further stylish option now available on all #continentalgt models is a High Gloss Carbon Fibre technical finish. Reinforcing the luxurious feel for which #bentley cabins are renowned, the High Gloss Carbon Fibre is applied to the fascia and door waistrails, while the centre console is Piano Black Veneer.

The #continentalgt #v8 is equipped with a new-generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged engine developing 542 bhp (550 PS) and 568 lb.ft (770 Nm) of torque. It combines immense power with impressive fuel efficiency, plus a characterful #v8 burble though the stylish quad exhaust pipes.

Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, Great Britain, the third generation #continentalgt #v8 and GT #v8 Convertible combine driver-focussed performance with exquisite refinement and cutting-edge technology.

The new GT #v8 – Offering a unique breadth of Grand Touring abilities

The third-generation #continentalgt represents the pinnacle of Bentley’s design and engineering achievements and sits in the modern luxury Grand Tourer segment that the British brand created in 2003 with the launch of the first-generation model.

Excellent weight distribution makes the dynamic GT #v8 feel even more agile and responsive. The new-generation 4.0-litre, 32-valve #v8 petrol engine delivers a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h) and 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) for the Coupe; and 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) for the Convertible.

Spirited performance is complemented by refined efficiency, stemming partly from the ability of the engine to de-activate four of its eight cylinders in suitable conditions, without compromising the drive. Stop-Start technology, which operates at ‘near-to-stop’ speeds, is also available.

Effortlessly elegant, the new #v8 is a truly breath-taking car, featuring 20-inch, 10-spoke painted alloy wheels and the option to choose from nine other designs measuring up to 22-inches. Both Coupe and Convertible models are distinguished by quad exhaust pipes and subtle #v8 badging to the front wings.

The #continentalgt V8’s innovative, luxurious interior offers unrivalled Grand Touring refinement. It seamlessly integrates natural materials such as the highest quality leathers and rare, sustainably sourced veneers into the finest handcrafted cabin. A 10-speaker #bentley Audio
