The Bentley Continental is a two tonne GT with hefty engine in the front and all-wheel drive. The company now makes a V8 version with some added sportiness. Alex Goy tries to find out whether the Bentley Continental V8 S is sporty enough to be called a supercar.
The twin-turbocharged V8 engine produces 520 hp and more torque than the standard V8 model. Also, apart from the strikingly yellow paint job, the V8 S gets a rear diffuser, splitter and a lowered ride height for extra sportiness. The springs have been stiffened so that the behemoth can be kept under control around corners.
That said, interior quality has been the forte of Bentley for years and the V8 S is no exception. With its loud V8 and a ballistic 0-60 mph performance, the Continental V8 S is still a pretty comfy cruiser.
