Put the pedal to the plush, embroidered carpet, and the Conti V8 will rush from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, just 0.3 seconds slower than its W-12 counterpart. The acceleration is thrilling. Torque comes on quickly, gear changes are refined, and the car tops out at 198 mph.
The 2020 Bentley Continental GT V8 coupe and convertible are the less-expensive but hardly less-capable versions of the redesigned Continental that made its debut as a 2019 model. Instead of a 626-hp W-12 under the hood, they feature a Porsche-sourced and Bentley-tuned twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that conjures up 542 hp and 568 pound-feet of torque.
The 2020 Bentley Continental GT V8 starts at $198,500 for the coupe and $218,550 for the convertible compared to $214,600 and $236,100 for their W-12 counterparts. I’d go with the V8 coupe (for its stiffer structure) and save the $16,000 but spend the $5,000 or so for the Dynamic Ride Control active roll bars. If only I could afford a $200,000 luxury sport coupe, I bet that would feel good, too.
