The GT S has a 549hp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds.
The Bentley Continental GT is now available in a S version, which adds a bit more agility and a bespoke design package. It’s based on the Bentley Continental GT V8, and comes in coupe and convertible versions, bringing the total number of Bentley Continental GT variants to five: Mulliner, Speed, Azure, standard Continental GT, and Continental GT S.

The Bentley Continental GT S has a Powerful Engine
The new Bentley Bentayga S, like the previous year’s Bentayga S, is only available with the firm’s 549hp, 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, which can sprint from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 4.0 seconds and top out at around 320 kilometers per hour.
The engine, which was chosen over the top-tier V12 for its lighter weight, now breathes through a new sports exhaust system that is designed to “amplify the cross plane V8 beat.”
The Chassis and Handling of The Bentley Continental GT S
It also has a 48V electric anti-roll control system that can generate up to 1,295Nm of torque in as little as 0.3 seconds, which is in line with the S model’s dynamic billing.
Bentley claims that by disconnecting the left and right-hand side wheels from each other during a cruise, this system, which uses motors inside the anti-roll bars to compensate for lateral movement in cornering, can also improve ride comfort.
Exterior and Interior of The Bentley Continental GT S
The new Continental, like its Bentayga sibling, is distinguished from the more luxury-oriented models in the lineup by its black grille, wheels, exterior trim, exhaust tips, and wing mirrors. Meanwhile, the lights on both ends have tinted lenses, and the brake calipers are painted bright red.
The S’s interior features a Dinamica-trimmed steering wheel, seats, and gearstick, as well as the same performance-themed graphics found on the top-tier, W12-powered Bentley Continental GT Speed’s gauge cluster.
The S has yet to be priced, but expect it to be significantly more expensive than the standard GT V8, which starts at around Rs 4.12 crore (on-road, Delhi).
Bentley has a Presence in India
The Bentley Bentayga SUV, Continental GT grand tourer, and Flying Spur luxury sedan are currently available. Bentley’s sales figures have also been improving year after year. In 2020, the company set a new sales record, only to surpass it by more than 31% in 2021. The Bentayga accounted for the lion’s share of total sales.
