Continental GT V8 S Convertible

The engine of the Continental GT V8 S makes an incredible sound – one best enjoyed with the top down.

Complete with a redesigned front spoiler and rear diffuser, for a sportier and more confident stance, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible is an irresistible proposition for every journey.

But this supercar performance doesn’t mean a compromise on comfort. Thanks to the four-layer construction of its retractable roof, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible accommodates up to four people with the hood up in the same unflustered refinement as its hard-topped sibling.

To enquire about availability, please contact your local Bentley dealer.

Exterior Design

Designed for a sporting look, whether the hood is up or down, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible looks every bit as sophisticated as any convertible Bentley – but with the added edge that comes from a series of S model exterior details.

The look is complemented by 20” open-spoke wheels and red painted brake callipers. Beluga gloss door mirrors to match the lower body details including the lower front bumper, while dark tint lamps to the front and rear are options that add additional edge to the exterior aesthetic.

Interior Design

When you sit beneath the four-layer insulated roof, it’s easy to forget you’re in a convertible, such is the quality of its construction.

A shorter centre console gives rear seat passengers even more space, while the elegant Continental instrumentation gives the impression of an aeronautical cockpit. Piano Black veneers feature as standard throughout the interior, with a range of wood species, including Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer, available as options.

Improved Aerodynamics

Beluga gloss lower body styling features – front splitter, side sills and rear diffuser – improve the car’s aerodynamics by reducing front-end lift, improving stability at higher speeds, while bright wing vents sit proudly behind the front wheels.

Beneath the bonnet of the Continental GT V8 S Convertible beats a monstrous heart: a 4.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine generating 680 Newton metres (502 lb.ft) of torque.

Despite its muscular powerplant, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible is remarkably efficient with CO2 emissions at a mere 258 g/km, due in no small part to the use of variable displacement.

Additionally, for the ultimate in efficient performance, the engineering team introduced hot-side inside (HSI) technology: in essence, a method of reducing both energy wastage and engine weight by mounting the turbochargers within the ‘V’ of the V8 cylinder arrangement. The result of all this innovation is a Continental GT V8 S Convertible with improved power performance, with no penalty to fuel economy or emissions.

The suspension is 10 mm lower than that of the Continental GT V8 Convertible – and the springs and damping have been revised, front and back. Alongside uprated anti-roll bars, this improves agility, control and balance, while the recalibrated steering enhances driver feedback and feel.

Open-Air Driving

At the flick of a switch, the four-layer insulated roof of the Continental GT V8 S Convertible folds down, to expose driver and occupants to the sun. Even if you set off before deciding, the top can still be folded down at speeds of up to 20 mph.

Once in motion, the upgraded Continental chassis and suspension system combine to provide a more responsive drive, while the satisfying roar of the 4.0 litre twin turbocharged V8 engine – all the more important when driving with the top down, comes with the option of a sports exhaust system with a revised pipe architecture, redesigned silencers and re-tuned mountings.

All Weather Specification

The roof of the Continental GT V8 S Convertible is so well insulated that, with the top up, it’s easy to believe you’re in a coupé. With the top down, however, there are several features designed specifically to enhance the thrill of open-top grand touring.

Heated front seats are a standard feature whereas integrated neck warmers, a wind deflector and a heated steering wheel are all included in the All Seasons Specification package or as separate options, taking the chill off any cold-weather drive.
