The ultimate in luxurious power has arrived in the form of the new Bentley Continental GTC V8.
This exquisite piece of design and engineering is different from others in the Continental range, with an aggressive edge in terms of looks and when you press the accelerator.
The new Bentley Continental GTC V8 can be discovered in more detail at Jardine Motors Group dealerships in Essex and Kent.
Both seats in the Bentley Continental GTC V8 have lumbar support.
An essential attribute for a car that is so powerful and has been built to be reliable and comfortable on long distances.
In addition to this important feature, this Bentley has multiple Thorax airbags to protect you and your passenger in the event of a collision.
As with other Bentley Continentals, the GTC V8 is a heavyweight sports car that's as big on elegance as it is on performance. Inside, the car is fully upholstered in soft leather and includes modern luxuries such as heated seats, satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. The dashboard is gloss walnut veneer complemented by chrome dials, while a leather steering wheel completes the stylish, practical layout. Luxury Swiss watchmaker Breitling has designed and made a clock that only features in this Bentley, and it's opulent touches such as these that really ensure the car is a cut above the rest.Bentley's signature front grille comes in gloss black and has a chrome border, all of which sits within a three-section bumper that conjures the image of a highly impressive sports car.
The GTC V8 delivers 660Nm of torque at just 1,700rpm, due in part to the four-wheel drive. The 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 engine is controlled by an eight-speed automatic transmission (with column-mounted paddles), delivering 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds and boasting a top speed of 187mph.
This luxury convertible transforms from a solid Bentley to a mean-sounding, sleek soft top in just 25 seconds. Press the button at speeds of up to 20mph and the canvas roof peels back quickly and folds away neatly, leaving you free to enjoy the wind in your hair and the sounds of the mammoth V8 engine in your ears.
