Bentleys have forever been powerful cars for folk who prefer driving a few tons of luxury instead of those rattling contraptions people travel in these days. The British-manufacturer, known for its tradition of building cars favored by royalty and the like, gave its customary design thought a twist when it first launched the Continental GT in 2003. The manufacturer has unveiled the newest generation of this muscular luxury car, the 4.0 liter, twin-turbocharged Continental GTC V8, and its coupe cousin, the Continental GT V8. With an engine that delivers 500 bhp at 6000 revs/min with 660 Nm of torque, the GTC dashes from 0 to 60mpg in just 4.7 seconds and boasts a top speed of 187mph. Bentley’s shifting focus on fuel efficiency, the new V8 Continental models, are eco-efficient and spout out 40% lesser Co2 emissions.
With an equally exhilarating exterior with a black gloss matrix grille with a chrome frame and centre bar, the new Continental GTC V8 is available with standard 20” alloys or optional 21” six-spoke wheels in Diamond Black or Diamond Silver finishes. Weighing in at 2470 kg, the Bentley Continental GTC V8 is a perfect blend of luxury, speed and performance.
