Bentley released the Bentley Continental GT and GTC V8 models at the Detroit Motor Show back in January. Bentley have yet to unveil the Continental GTC V8 at a European motor show so when CarStalker caught a silver example roaming the streets of London, we were quite excited!
The Bentley Continental GTC V8 will be released to the European market at the Geneva Motor Show, starting next week. This example was spotted driving at Hyde Park Corner. The new Bentley V8 engine delivers maximum power of 507hp at 6,000 rev/min and a peak torque of 660Nm, which is available across virtually the entire rev range from 1,700 to 5,000 rev/min.
The V8 models are distinguished by a black gloss matrix grille with chrome frame and center bar, a red enamel Bentley ‘B’ badge, and a black matrix three-segment lower front bumper divided by distinctive body-coloured strakes. At the rear, chromed ‘figure eight’ exhaust tailpipes, a dark lower valance and red enamel ‘B’ bootlid badge show the identity of the new V8s.
