2020 Bentley Continental GT First Edition Convertible V8
A DYNAMIC LOOK
This stunning car takes the sharp, superformed lines of the new Continental GT and adds sleek contemporary details that reflect its agile performance.
Elliptical quad tailpipes hint at the potent engine sound, while a discreet V8 badge placed on the fender speaks to the exciting drive to come. Striking 20 ten-spoke painted alloy wheels, available only for the new Continental GT V8 coupe and convertible, have the spokes arranged in symmetrical pairs to make the already dynamic profile even more dramatic.
A CONTEMPORARY FEEL
Inside the car, a single hide color is used throughout for a look that combines elegance with simplicity. You can choose from five exquisite colors, including Beluga and Cricket Ball - if you wish to explore a wider range of options, or add a secondary color, there are, of course, many ways to personalize your car - read below to explore more.
The hides are complemented perfectly by the contemporary Crown Cut Walnut veneer as standard, sustainably sourced from the American Black Walnut tree. A further range of optional veneers includes the stunning Piano Black, and any veneer can be enhanced by adding a sleek Chrome Pin Stripe.
A carefully curated selection of options enhance the exquisite level of detail still further. The Front Seat Comfort Specification adds exceptional versatility to the seat position, as well as heated armrests and a wealth of massage and ventilation functions, while the Mulliner Driving Specification introduces elements with a sleek, sporting style - including a diamond-in-diamond quilt pattern, sports pedals and a choice of four striking wheel designs.
Discover a truly captivating driving experience. With twin-scroll turbochargers located inside the V of the engine, the new Continental GT V8 is exceptionally responsive, delivering breathtaking acceleration accompanied by the irresistible sound of a Bentley V8 engine unleashing its immense power - which is especially intense in Sport mode.
The result is a car that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) and take you to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)*
This is a car that delivers impressive control. Considerably lighter than the previous Continental GT V8, its superlatively balanced weight distribution enhances traction and stability as you accelerate.
A passive chassis with a preset balance between ride comfort and handling ensures exceptionally confident cornering, or for truly exquisite control you can opt for Bentley Dynamic Ride, an innovative 48V Electronic Active Roll Control system that continuously monitors the road conditions and adjusts the anti-roll bars to reduce body movement, optimizing both handling and ride comfort in any situation.
The variable displacement technology used within the new Continental GT V8's engine increases efficiency without compromising on performance. When the engine's control microprocessor detects a light throttle opening, it closes the valves on four of the cylinders, seamlessly switching back to all eight whenever needed without the driver even noticing. The result is an impressive range of over 500 miles.
AN EXQUISITE EXPRESSION OF AN EXHILARATING CAR
The new Continental GT V8 First Edition* has been specially created to celebrate the launch of this exhilarating car. This rare and collectable limited edition showcases the heights of Bentley design and craftsmanship.
Its unique design details include a specially designed First Edition badge featuring a Union Flag with the number 1 at its center, placed both on the exterior and inside the car on the fascia. Opening the doors reveals the special First Edition treadplates, and, should you wish, the words First Edition or the Bentley wings can be embroidered onto the headrests.
In addition, the First Edition contains a selection of the most desirable options available for the new Continental GT V8 as standard, including the Bentley Rotating Display. You can opt for any wheel of your choice, including a special 22 Five Open Spoke wheel, as well as any veneer, including dual veneers with a Grand Black finish.
