Bentley debuts the new Continental GTS and GTC S

Retains the same engine and specifications, but gets many visual and interior improvements to set it apart.

Bentley has introduced two new models to their Continental line, namely the GT S and GTC S. For all intents and purposes the car is the same as the normal V8 Continental, save for a few visual enhancements and an all-new exhaust, and a few new details on the inside of the car as well.

As mentioned above, the monstrous V8 motor carries on into this model, which produces 542HP/770NM of power, and has a 0-100 time of just 4.0 seconds. What’s new is the exhaust- Bentley have fitted a new sports exhaust which has one simple job- to amplify the sound of that sweet, sweet V8! The weight of the engine has also been reduced, and there is a 48V active anti-roll system which has the capability to generate 1300NM within 0.3 seconds which helps with minimizing body roll and also improving ride comfort.

    The front of the car sees a new all-black gloss grille and new S badging on the front fenders. The headlights and tail lights are tinted black, while the entirety of the car has elements of black on it apart from the Bentley badging which is chrome. It rides on new 22″ all-black wheels with red brake calipers. Customers have a choice between either 22″ 5-spoke rims and 21″ 3-spoke rims.

    On the inside, a two-tone colour scheme takes center stage with a unique colour scheme on offer. The steering, gear knob, seat cushion and seat backrest are all draped in a suede-like material called Dinamica which Bentley says will offer a smooth hide with a soft finish, and the seats have a fluted design.

      Lastly, the treadplates are illuminated with an S, and they replace the Bentley Motors Ltd plaque found on almost all Bentleys. In the GT S and GTC S, Bentley will allow customers to choose the emphasis of their car, which gives them an option between “Azure” or comfort, dynamic performance through the “S” and visual presence through “Speed”.
