(502 lb.ft) of torque together with careful suspension modifications and a
selection of new exterior and interior features. Complementing these two
dynamic new models in Frankfurt is the pinnacle of Bentley luxury in the
form of the flagship Mulsanne and the all-new four-door sedan Flying Spur.
Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors,
"Our new V8 S models are an exciting addition to the Continental family.
The increased power and torque combined with dynamically-focussed
suspension sharpen the performance capabilities of our V8 grand tourers
with no compromise to the luxury and quality that all Bentleys typify.
These are cars with huge character and agility, enhanced even further by a
distinctive V8 soundtrack."
A distinctive and dynamic new Continental
Building on the success of the acclaimed Continental GT V8, the new V8 S
models feature a more powerful version of Bentley's 4-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine developing 521 bhp (528 PS / 389
KW) at 6,000 rev/min and an immense peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb.ft) at a
mere 1,700 rev/min. An 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and Bentley
all-wheel drive system with 40:60 rear-biased torque split ensures
effortless delivery of the increased power, providing exhilarating yet
smooth performance. The GT V8 S coupe sprints from 0-60 mph in just 4.3
seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5s) and onto a top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h).
The performance of the GT V8 S convertible is equally impressive, reaching
60 mph from a standing start in 4.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.7s) and a top
speed of 191mph (308km/h). This increased performance is not at the cost of
the efficient engine's fuel economy capabilities, with both coupe and
convertible able to cover over 500 miles (805 km) on a single tank of fuel.
A suite of enhancements to the Continental chassis provide greater agility
and body control to match the engine's higher output, whilst maintaining
the car's renowned ride comfort and refinement. A more sporting setup sees
ride height lowered by 10 mm front and rear while spring rates, bushes and
the rear anti-roll bar are stiffened. Recalibrated damping, steering and
ESC complete the package for an exhilarating and involving driving
Sharp and stylish design touches are introduced to match the new models'
enhanced sporting pace. A package of lower-body styling features accents
the purposeful stance offered by the lowered suspension through an
aerodynamic front splitter, discrete side sills and elegant rear diffuser,
all finished in Beluga gloss black. New signature 20-inch wheels are
exclusive to the V8 S models, and feature an open-spoke design that
provides a clear view of red-painted brake calipers. "V8 S" fender badges
complete the understated but sporting appearance. The visual appeal of the
new car is matched by a stunning V8 Exhaust note that can be amplified further with
an optional new sports Exhaust.
Inside, the cabin of the V8 S models presents a thoroughly modern
interpretation of Bentley luxury. Available with a range of striking
duo-tone interiors, customers select interior trim from the full range of
seventeen hide colours. The GT V8 S coupe also features a unique contrast
centre stripe for the hide-trimmed roof lining, matched to the colour of
the main hide. Knurled chrome detailing to the gearshift lever and
ventilation controls provides a perfect contrast to Piano Black veneers,
while discreet "V8 S" badges are displayed on each sill tread plate.
The new GT V8 S coupe and convertible arrive in Bentley dealerships from
Bentley's all-new luxury performance sedan
With its unrivalled blend of effortless driveability, exquisite luxury and
craftsmanship, sculpted design and state-of-the-art technology, the new
Flying Spur continues its successful market introduction following its
global debut in March this year.
