Reviewing the Bentley Continental GT V8S
|   Thursday, February 13, 2014
Bentley's recently revealed Continental GT V8 S has attained massive popularity, for a company whose primary focus is the top strata of a society. Bentley is known for its frequent dramatic engineering changes, even though they never fall out of public grace. Their remodeled Continental GT has an S badge, which aims at providing superior performance, along with the right balance between luxury and comfort.

This variant features additional exterior modifications such as a remodeled side skirt, rear diffuser and chin spoiler.
If the V8S badge is ignored for a second, this is the best Continental GT from Bentley, so far. Suspension and dampers have been enhanced too, which gives this vehicle a smooth feel. Even though Bentley has taken a fair bit of time in designing this vehicle, loyalists are not complaining as they are happy with what they got.

The Continental GT V8S is for all those customers, who have flooded company officials with the request of enhanced fun while driving. Powered by a twin turbo charged V8 engine displacing 500 – 521 BHP, this vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0 -60 MPH within 4.5 – 4.8 seconds. Experts have revealed these figures as official news is yet to arrive. We are also expecting top speeds within 188 – 192 MPH and will get back to you with details soon.

Engineers at Bentley have paid additional details to engine modification, which as a result works will with the stiffer springs. Ride height has been dropped by 10 mm, which works wonders for this vehicle on road. We were among the lucky few, able to take this vehicle out for a spin, although without official word confirming technical specifications, we are unable to comment on the actual displacement figures.

Even though driving this car is impressive, we were unable to spot any major difference in acceleration from its standard variant. Hence, we just have Bentley's word on this topic for now. However, braking potential has been increased, which instills confidence while driving this vehicle. Sufficient mid range torque feels pleasant while travelling long distances. It is appropriate on both freeways as well as within city perimeters.

Its chassis feels precise and taut, while cornering is easier compared to its predecessor. Even though this is not a drift machine, it is fun to drive nonetheless. However, additional luxury features have added some weight to this vehicle, which is a problem plaguing all Bentleys. This is the only factor preventing this vehicle from being a full blown performance coupe. However, Bentley is iconic and popular for all these reasons.

Unlike their Continental GTC, this machine feels more relaxed while driving. Even though these modifications uphold the Continental GT's character, we still love the standard coupe for what it is. Bentley is an expert in what it does. Hence, we have no complaints whatsoever. If you are interested in this model, contact your nearest dealer at once. For others who just want latest pictures and information about this car, visit us soon as we will come back with additional details.
