There is a lean and muscular look to the Continental GT V8 that's entirely in keeping with the powertrain beneath the bonnet. The Crewe styling team has created a Bentley coupé of elegantly tailored lines and muscular form, with a new bright chrome grille replacing the gloss back of the previous model - bringing it into line with the rest of the Continental range. Beautifully designed auto-fold mirrors mean even the practical necessities can be stunning.

But there's a darker side to this Bentley, and it can be summoned up by pressing the start button and bringing the advanced 4.0 litre V8 engine to life. Acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds attests to the power of the advanced 500bhp V8 engine, and with a potential range of over 530 miles between fill-ups you'll be able to spend some quality time enjoying the simple, modern feel of the handcrafted interior.
