Bentley’s new Continental “S” models hit U.S. shores at this week’s 2014 NAIAS in Detroit. Available in both coupe and convertible variants, each model has received an updated 4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 521hp, capable of producing 502 lb-ft. of torque at just 1,700 RPM.

Combined with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, the GT V8 S coupe can hit 60mph in 4.3 seconds, and a top speed of 192mph. The convertible is no slouch either, hitting 60 in the just 4.5 seconds, and shaving just 1mph off the top speed of its solid-roofed brother. As an added bonus, both models can drive up to 500 miles on a single tank of fuel.

Naturally, each is outfitted with the finest in interior finishes, with two-tone top quality leather, chrome accents, and piano black veneers.
