Introduction

One of the stars of the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Bentley Continental GT V8 Speed provides even greater power than the conventional Continental GT V8.

As well as a sportier ride and sublime driving dynamics.

The new Bentley Continental GT V8 Speed can be discovered in more detail at Jardine Motors Group dealerships in Essex and Kent.

Continental Range

Design

A variety of idiosyncratic design cues give the two-door GT V8 Speed coupé its own distinctive look, whilst retaining an unmistakeably “Bentley” air.

The exterior bodywork of the Speed is differentiated from the standard model by an additional front splitter, a gloss-black grille with a chrome divider, extended side sills, and bespoke 20” alloy wheels, complemented by figure-of-eight exhaust tail pipes at the rear. The vehicle’s aerodynamic qualities have been improved still further by a rear diffuser, whilst a lower ride height, increased spring rates and recalibrated steering offers a sportier ride.

Safety

A variety of active and passive safety measures protects the occupants of the GT V8 S, whilst the vehicle itself is rendered secure by a sophisticated security system including a GPS tracker and volumetric ultrasonic alarm. The driver and passenger are shielded by front, rear, side and thorax airbags in the event of an accident. A raft of advanced active safety features, however, help to prevent such a situation coming to pass. These include an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Hydraulic Brake Assistance (HBA), Drag Torque Control (MSR) and aquaplane detection for wet conditions.

Technology

The GT V8 S is a supremely fast and nimble grand tourer, with a 4.0 litre engine unit supplying a phenomenal 521bhp and 680Nm of torque at just 1700rpm. When combined with its streamlined shape, the monstrous power of the engine can thrust the Speed from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, and to a theoretical top speed of 192mph. An eight-speed ZF transmission with steering column mounted gearshift paddles provides a constant surge of power from the moment you press the accelerator. All-wheel drive keeps the GT V8 S firmly grounded when dealing with the harshest conditions and most treacherous road surfaces. Inside, a touchscreen infotainment with 30GB of memory provides digital radio, live traffic information, and satellite landscape imagery, iPod and MP3 player.
