Bentley Motors Limited has been in the handcrafted automobile industry since 1919 when it was founded in Britain by H.M. Bentley and W. O. Bentley. While initially well regarded as a durable and performance-oriented manufacturer, Bentley eventually acquired a taste for building luxury cars with their acclaimed performance. In 1998 Bentley came into the Volkswagen group after being acquired by the latter from Vickers. To capture the younger market, Bentley introduced the Bentley Continental GT, a grand tourer built through an assembly line in 2003. A second-generation 2017 Bentley Continental GT V8 is up for grabs with less than 14,050 miles on the odometer.
Bentley has always been known to spoil customers with the way they can customize colors. And as such, the 2017 Bentley Continental GT V8 was offered in an astounding 107 exterior color options. This Continental GT is adorned in tantalizing Dragon Red Metallic paint, which is reported to be ceramic coated for added paint protection. The alternative wheels, jeweled fuel, and oil caps are part of the Mulliner Driving Specification (MDS). It sits on a set of 10-spoke polished wheels. The MDS specifications add in drilled alloy sport foot pedals, a knurled sports gear lever with leather and embroidered Bentley emblems on the headrests. The interior is done in Beluga with leather seat trims, contrast diamond pattern stitching and leather headlining. The seats feature 14-way power along with various memory functions and thigh support. Burr walnut with veneer on the door and rear quarter inserts adds a touch of class. Wood and hide wrap the 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel. Entertainment is added as an 8” touch screen display controls for the AM/FM radio, CD player and Bluetooth connectivity with sound outputted to the 11-speaker Naim audio system.
Powering the 2017 Bentley Continental GT V8 is a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 mated to an 8-speed ZF transmission with Quickshift and steering column-mounted gearshift paddles. The power of the V8 is rated at 500hp along with 487 lb.ft of torque. The Bentley Continental GT V8 has a top speed of 192 mph. Driving is enhanced by the traction control and electronic stability control aboard the car. Stopping power is aided by the all-wheel disc brakes.
