Bentley Manchester customers will be among the very first people to drive the new Bentley Continental GT and GTC V8 as the dealership prepares to receive its demonstrator cars.
Katie Wood, Marketing Manager for Bentley Manchester, said: “The launch of the Continental V8 models marks a new generation of Bentley engines, offering sensational performance, outstanding efficiency and a soundtrack to thrill any driver.
“We are looking forward to the arrival of the demonstrators in May, to introduce Bentley’s latest supercar to all of our customers and friends.”
Bentley enthusiasts keen to enjoy a test drive are advised to register their interest early by contacting the dealership on 01565 220303.
The new 4.0 litre V8 engine widens the appeal of the latest generation of Continentals, introducing a completely new driving experience.
Bentley’s innovative deployment of variable valve displacement, where four of the eight cylinders are effectively switched off at gentle throttle openings, helps to deliver 40 per cent more fuel-efficiency.
The styling of the cars is a more muscular version of the classic Continentals, having an aggressive lower bumper with triple air intakes and a striking red enamelled Bentley winged ‘B’ on the bonnet. At the rear, the twin exhaust tailpipes – tuned to deliver a trademark V8 burbling tone – create an elongated, side-on figure eight, echoed by the elliptical double ring of rear lights.
