Engine and performance
The 2023 Bentley Continental GT is sufficiently powered by a 4.0 liter V-8 or 6.0 liter W-12 engine under the hood—both are twin-turbocharged, and intercooled DOHC 48-valve.
While the former makes 542 horses, launching the 4926-pound coupe to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. The more expensive later W-12 engine makes 626 horsepower in non-Speed models and can motivate a coupe to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds.
The same engine has been tuned up to 650-hp in the Speed model, and we estimate it can reach 60 in as little as 3.1 seconds. Both engines function on an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that snaps off on quick, and very smooth shifts.
Though, customers are allowed to choose, they can order the coupe or convertible trim with either engine type of which all Continental GTs are made with a standard all-wheel-drive system, which have proven to be suitable for road types.
Bentley’s V-8 is a finely polished gem that gives up peak horsepower and makes for a coupe that’s virtually as quick and smooth running in real-world conditions.
Also, the coupe offers arching roofline that ties together the car’s style so elegantly but of course we cannot fail to admit that the convertible can be more or just as fun depending on the personality behind the wheels, having all that wind in your hair whenever you like must be worth every penny.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG doesn’t seem to be on the priority list of the Bentley, judging from it most fuel-efficient offering being a twin-turbo V-8 in a particular model, and this doesn’t seem to be a deal breaker for its customers.
The EPA statistics of the carmaker, rates the Continental V-8 at 16 mpg city and 26 highway.
