With a sharper look and a focus on the pleasure of driving, the new Bentley Continental GT S and GTC S are created to accentuate the key elements of the Continental GT family whilst appealing to a wider audience of drivers. The enhanced design of both the interior features and the exterior style complement the grand tourer approach that Bentley has perfected throughout the Continental family, while still focusing on the “Wellbeing behind the Wheel” concept conceptualized for the Azure range.
Sporting Performance and Agility Combined
Under the hood of the S range, you’ll find the ever-popular 542bhp (550 PS) and 770 Nm torque 4.0-litre V8 engine. Delivering 0-100 km/h (62mph) in just 4.0 seconds, the Sports Exhaust is unique to the GT S and GTC S, accentuating the roar of the V8 engine.
While there is immense power behind the wheel, the Bentley Dynamic Ride control system creates an agile and responsive driving experience. First pioneered by Bentley, the advanced active anti-roll control system combines a 1300 Nm torque in 0.3 seconds and a uniquely designed anti-roll bar system to compensate for hard cornering while simultaneously improving the cruising experience by decoupling the left and right-hand wheels from one another.
A Sharper Exterior Design
The exterior design of the S models perfectly impersonates the Sports mode, with black gloss accents (such as the radiator grille, brightware, and the majority of the distinctive S badging) as well as dark-tinted headlights. The iconic winged Bentley badge and lettering are distinctively finished in bright chrome, but it’s the gloss black wing build set on a darker exterior that really gives the GT S and GTC S its dramatic look.
The S range comes with an all-new 22” wheel option as standard, finished in either a gloss black or Pale Brodgar Satin, highlighting the 5 Y-shaped spokes. The red-painted callipers peep out in true sporting fashion. A 21” tri-spoke wheel design is also available and unique to the S range. The quad exhaust tailpipes, sill extenders and S badging on the front fenders all add to the overall sporting aesthetic of this Bentley Continental GT Speed.
Dramatic, yet Complimentary Interiors
Complimenting the sharp sporting design of the exterior are the bold and striking interiors of the S range. With a two-tone colour split offered throughout, the steering wheel, gear lever, seat cushion and backrest are adorned with the suede-like properties of Dinamica. The seat bolsters, door pads, centre console and instrument panel are covered with leather hide, highlighting the contrasting tactility between the leather and the Dinamica.
The sport-style seats are each fluted with optional quilting and have embroidered headrests (adorning either an S or the Bentley wings, depending on your preference). The metal S signature badge, as well as illuminated Bentley tread plates, are iconic finishing touches.
Where Sporting Design and Wellness Come Together
The Bentley Continental GT S and Continental GTC S unite performance with a sharp design and an agile ride. Tailoring the engineering towards performance car lovers, the GT S and GTC S are the bolder, more powerful brothers of the Bentley family compared to the new wellness-focused Azure range which appeals to those seeking comfort and wellbeing in their driving experience.
We absolutely love the new Bentley Continental GT S and GTC S due to their ability to perfectly blend power and luxury. Providing a high-powered performance car with all the elegance you’d expect from Bentley, we’re confident that this new addition to the Continental family is set to start a revolution in the luxury performance car scene.
