North American Debut of Continental GT V8 S at NAIAS Detroit 2014
Flagship Mulsanne and Flying Spur luxury sedan also on display
Bentley unveils the Continental GT V8 S in North America for the first time in Detroit this January at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2014. Alongside this debut is the world’s fastest four-door luxury saloon, the Flying Spur, and the pinnacle of the Bentley range, the Mulsanne.
Commenting from the Detroit auto show, Dr.Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive, says:
“The GT V8 S is a car for our V8 customers who want more. It is more agile, with a lower and uprated suspension, faster, with more power and more distinctive with its signature S styling and a unique V8 S soundtrack.
“I am delighted to bring this car to our biggest market for the first time, in this sustained period of growth for the Americas. This region’s strong performance played an important role in making 2013 a record year. With its latest results, Bentley is the world’s most sought after luxury car brand.”
Available as both a coupé and convertible, the new GT V8 S models bring added excitement to the Continental range. The new V8 S models provide an even more engaging driving experience from Bentley’s already renowned 4-litre twin-turbo V8 powertrain. Delivered via a close-ratio ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, the increased V8 power provides effortless, exhilarating high performance with breath-taking acceleration and imperceptibly smooth power delivery. This increased performance is achieved without detriment to the V8 engine’s class-leading fuel economy and CO2 emissions, or its ability to cover more than 500 miles (805 km) between fill-ups.
