In pursuit of accentuating the sportier and more contemporary edge of the GT V8 S, Bentley Motors creates the new Continental GT V8 S Black Edition, available in both coupé and convertible body styles. Instead of the regular brightware, the Black Edition iteration of the gorgeous Continental boasts a flashy gloss which is juxtaposed to the body kit in a choice of four accent colors. Black Components create dark accents on the lower fender, the door and rear bumper inserts as well as on the door handles. The radiator matrix and surround, front and rear lamps are dark tint and feature black bezels.
For the exterior aerokit, customers can opt for four striking accent colors, St James’ Red, Beluga, Hallmark or Cyber Yellow, for the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. The door mirrors can also be specified in the same matching color as a cost option. Customers can also choose black or red calipers for the Black 21” Elegant wheels, that will harmonize with the exterior of the car. Black 21” 5-spoke directional wheels are available as part of the Mulliner Driving Specification. Dark tint lights and rear lamps complete the sporting aesthetic.
The new Continental GT V8 S Black Edition is powered with a twin-turbo, 4.0-litre V8 engine that develops 528 PS (520 bhp) and 680 Nm (502 lb.ft) of torque, and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
To represent the ambiance of the exterior, the interior is accentuated with Pillar Box Red, Porpoise, Beluga or Cyber Yellow on the centre bow and the GT Design seats by Mulliner. If customers choose the Mulliner Driving Specification, the Sports single-tone three-spoke steering wheel and the Mulliner Design seats with diamond quilting will be finished in corresponding color contrast stitching.
