2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S announced

2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S
Bentley has tweaked its V8-powered Continental GT a little to create with the Continental GT V8 S and GTC V8 S.

Due to be unveiled in Frankfurt, the regular car’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 unit has been massaged to produce 389 KW (522 hp) and 680 Nm of torque – up from 373 kW (500 hp) and 660 Nm, and returns an average fuel consumption figure 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres with CO2 emissions of 246 g/km (Cabriolet 10.9 l/100 km and 254 g/km). On the road, those figures translate to an impressive 0-100 km/h time of 4.3 seconds for the Coupe (4.5s) along with a 309 km/h (308 km/h) top speed, especially when you realize that the 6-litre twin-turbocharged W12-engined Continental GT takes 4.6s to 100 km/h and is only 9 km/h faster.

Other performance upgrades include lowered sports suspension (by 10 mm), revised damping, increased spring rates (45% front, 33% rear), a stiffened rear anti-roll bar, and recalibration of the steering, Continuous Damping Control (CDC) system and Electronic Stability Control.

Visually the S models can be identified by their black radiator grille with chrome divider bar, along with a front splitter, side sill trims and rear diffuser finished in Beluga gloss.’V8 S’ fender badging and exclusive 20-inch alloy wheels complete the aesthetics.

Deliveries begin in early 2014 with pricing yet to be confirmed.
