Bentley Continental GT V8 vs W12. The extreme comparison of the Bentley Continental GT family for the Pinterest UK launch campaign, #PinItForwardUK! Continental GT V8 is the slowest Bentley Continental GT you can buy at the moment. And you can distinguish the V8 model by the red Bentley logo. For some people, buying a V8 Continental GT is not a very good way of expressing their selves. Because, it is the cheapest model.
However, does the cheapest Bentley Continental GT V8 really that cheap? Actually, No! If anyone tells you that V8 is not that good, this means that person has a sense of interpreting the technological numbers of automotive and also has a sense of luxury. The only thing that person may own is the money! Continental GT V8 is powered by a state-of-art 4-lt petrol engine with 507 HP and 660 Nm of torque. The 4-lt engine represents the Bentley’s commitment to more fuel-efficient engines! Continental GT V8 only needs 4.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h and the top speed is 303 km/h. If these figures are not satisfying you, you life is really boring from this perspective. My personal opinion, I wouldn’t be bothered to buy a V8 Bentley. End of the day, it is Bentley craftsmanship. Very powerful and you cannot feel the performance difference that easily through the daily life driving conditions.
Bentley Continental GT Speed is powered by a 6-lt W12 engine with 625 HP and 800 Nm of torque. It is really really fast! GT Speed only needs 4.2 seconds to reach 100 km/h and to satisfy the Speed, the top speed is 330 km/h. These figures are extremely impressive and force you to buy a W12 GT Speed instead of V8. My personal opinion, of course GT Speed is better. I cannot deny this fact and I would love to have one, if I was living in place where it is legal to achieve 330 km/h! The acceleration gap of GT V8 and GT Speed is only 0.6 seconds and probably very hard to feel. However, the feeling of driving a W12 engine is the main motivation to go for a GT Speed!
Where I found these two state-of-art Bentley in London? In HR Owen Bentley dealer! I think they are already gone but if you are lucky, you may see them.
