Exterior Design

Even before the engine bursts into life, the distinctive styling makes a single-minded statement. The Beluga gloss Lower Body Styling Specification and a 10mm lower ride height add sleek, sporty lines to the Continental’s famously muscular stance. The front face and rear spoiler are complemented by new, all-bright fender vents, classically positioned behind the front wheels.

The dramatic look is completed by exclusive 20” open-spoke wheels and red painted brake callipers not to mention the striking gloss black radiator grille.

The new option of dark tint front & rear lamps adds further visual impact whilst the (also-new) optional Beluga gloss door mirrors complement the finish of the Lower Body Styling Specification perfectly when specified on lighter shades of exterior finish.


Interior Design

The interior cabin of the new Continental GT V8 S combines carefully selected leather hides and smooth metal surfaces to deliver a seductive blend of luxury and steely modernism - all beautifully lit by low energy, LED lights. The exquisite leather strikes a perfect balance with the knurled chrome details and the Piano Black veneer, lacquered and sanded up to eighteen times to produce a truly flawless finish. Speed is vital in a grand tourer. But when it comes to the Continental GT V8 S, style matters just as much.

New for 2016, you can now choose to have unique GT V8 S headrest embroidery, and, additionally, you are able to select Semi-Aniline hide for the GT V8 S coupe. 



All Bentley wood veneers are cured for 72 hours and treated with five layers of clear lacquer by hand, to achieve a luxurious finish without compromising the natural beauty of the grain. The Continental GT V8 S features Piano Black veneer as standard, but there is also a range of other ethically sourced veneers to choose from, alongside the more technical look that can be achieved with Carbon Fibre or Bright Tint Aluminium.

For 2016 a new veneer has been introduced to the Continental range: Dark stained Madrona.
