Bentley Continental GTC V8

THE CONTINENTAL GTC V8


A NEW BENTLEY ENGINE EARNS ITS WINGS. 
Although closely related to the GT, the Continental GTC V8 has its own distinct character. Those iconic Bentley features of dominant bonnet line, prominent matrix grille and twin large inner headlamps confirm its pedigree, while the wide track and four-square stance emphasise the performance focus of an all-wheel drive supercar. At the rear, wrap-around lamps accentuate the low, wide proportions, flanking a distinctive Bentley ‘double-horseshoe’ boot lid with a spoiler on its upper edge. Distinguishing features for the V8 model include a red enamel winged ‘B’ badge, gloss black grille with bright chrome surround, three-segment front bumper and the ‘figure eight’ tailpipes at the rear. To call the Continental GTC V8 a convertible understates its capabilities. It is both a sensational open tourer when the weather permits and a practical year-round proposition, as well insulated and refined as a coup√© thanks to its four-layer roof. And for the owner of a Continental GTC V8, one of the incidental pleasures of hood-down motoring is the chance to enjoy the V8’s mechanical symphony…in full surround sound. 

NOT ALL THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IS UNDER THE BONNET. 

 The Continental GTC’s infotainment system is every bit as compact, powerful and technologically advanced as the cars that houses it. As standard the Continental GTC V8 comes with an eight channel, eight speaker system, with 15GB of storage for music. Music can be played via an iPod, MP3 player, the car’s own six-disc CD changer or even an SD card. As for the ‘info’ in ‘infotainment’, the effortless touch-screen navigation system includes live traffic data*, online access for point of interest searches*, a 30GB hard disc drive offering rapid access to a continent-full of mapping and even the option of satellite landscape imagery*. As you drive, it provides real time monitoring of your tyre pressures, access to your phone contacts (either via Bluetooth or by inserting your SIM card) and the opportunity to zoom in or out of mapping at the slightest touch of a finger. * Not available in all markets 

HIGH PERFORMANCE AND HIGH FUNCTION ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE

The impeccably framed door and rear quarter trims offer excellent stowage, a result of many hours spent on the road by the design team to develop a living space worthy of a grand tourer. Elegant cobra-head seats with their integrated headrests are not simply outstandingly comfortable but also create more legroom for rear passengers. In all the cabin is an inspiring place to spend some quality time; and with a potential range of 510 miles between fill-ups thanks to that ultra-efficient V8 engine, you’ll be able to do exactly that. The Continental GTC V8 also has a neck warmer as an optional feature. With three fan speeds, you can travel hood-down in cooler weather, enjoying the fresh air without being chilled by it. The Continental GTC V8 features permanent all-wheel drive. Its reassuring grip and traction an essential ingredient for your everyday enjoyment of its high performance capabilities.
