Bentley Polanco

Continental GT V8


Lighter and leaner than its larger siblings, the new Continental GT V8 is nonetheless every inch a Bentley, right down to the luxuriously redesigned cabin. Drive one and you’ll experience the raw power and unique roar from its 4.0 litre V8. And whether you're four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen targeting a new world ice speed record, or simply want to accelerate smartly away from the lights on a cold, wet winter's day, the reassuring grip and traction of all-wheel drive is the other essential ingredient in a Bentley's high performance capability.

Traditional crafts of wood, leather and knurled metal feature in the new Continental GT V8’s interior, expressed in a crisp and modern design language to capture the sporting, youthful spirit of the V8. Nowhere is this more evident than the new steering wheel, complete with new knurled paddle-shift gear selectors for a more engaging drive.
