Bentley Continental GT V8 SJanuary 14th, 2014
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.
