Bentley, a name that evokes class and craftsmanship. From the early twentieth century, Bentley was in the business of making luxury British cars with details to behold. In fact, Bentley is known to be the sportier of the two British luxury marques, with competitor Rolls-Royce being a bit more laid back. This same heritage is reflected in their current model lineup, such as the Bentley Continental. While the Bentley Continental was the first Bentley to be mass-produced, it was held to the same standards as the brand’s previous handcrafted cars. A vehicle that is sought after by collectors for its value and class, our subject vehicle a 2017 Bentley Continental GT V8 S is a collector-owned car hailing from Hawaii with just 7,445 miles on the clock.

Stopping power is courtesy of disc brakes on all four wheels and red painted Bentley brake calipers. The front bumpers are made with an inverted aerofoil-esque design and a lip style spoiler on the rear completes the luxurious-with-a-hint-of-sporty vibe.
