Middle East debut for new Bentley Continental GT V8 S at Qatar Motor Show

Bentley Motors unveiled the newest member of its Continental GT line-up - the Continental GT V8 S - for the first time in the Middle East. Revealed at the Qatar Motor Show (February 20-25, 2014), the new model builds on the V8 platform to deliver improved performance and
a sleeker and sportier look and feel, and will officially go on sale across the region in April 2014.

The launch of this latest model took place the day after Al Wajba Motors, the sole distributor for Bentley in Qatar, announced the opening of its new Bentley showroom in Doha, further strengthening the famous British brand's presence in the state.

"Bentley has enjoyed remarkable success across the Middle East in recent years and the region is one of our most valued global markets. The Continental GT V8 S is an exciting addition to the Bentley range and we are confident it will be a favourite amongst drivers in the region with its sportier stance and enhanced performance," said Kevin Rose, Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing, Aftersales.

Available in both coupe and convertible forms, the new Continental V8 S models feature an uprated version of Bentley's twin-turbo, 4.0-litre engine that now develops 521 bhp (528 ps/389 kw) and 680 nm (502 lb ft) of torque, together with careful suspension modifications and a selection of new exterior and interior features.

The Continental GT V8 S is given a lowered suspension and lower-body styling that includes a sharp front splitter, discrete side sills and a subtle rear diffuser finished in Beluga gloss.

The signature 20-inch wheels are unique to the 'S' models with an open-spoke design that reveals distinctive, red-painted brake calipers. Subtle 'V8 S' badges are applied to each front fender, and as with the other members of the Continental V8 family, the famous Bentley Wings badges feature a red centre.
