Luxury and Power in One Beautiful Machine, Bentley’s new 2014 Continental GT V8 S heavyweight unveiled.
The Bentley Continental GT V8 S is a new experience all of its own. It’s a powerful new Continental and it pushes the Bentley’s V8 platform far further than it’s ever been pushed before. The body styling is dubbed Beluga, and the new design 20” wheels easily state the intent of this beautiful vehicle. Bentley’s have racing in their blood, and this car is no exception.
Under the hood
The V8 S is a V8 car with a little added kick. It’s not a lightweight, at a weight of 5,060lbs, and that weight carries a four liter twin-turbocharged, high pressure direction injection V8 with the standard GT/GTCv8 engine and it packs an extra 21 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque. It also has cylinder deactivation, which cuts out four of the eight cylinders when they aren’t needed, in order to reduce the consumption of fuel.
Build around a chassis designed to make it more agile, the Bentley doesn’t let that agility sacrifice anything in comfort. It has enough space to comfortable seat four adults, and enough trunk space for any luggage. Its combination of power and excellent handling that make this luxury coupe stand out in the crowd.
