2016 Bentley GTC V8S

Bentley has revised the wheel choices, and added a new 21-inch rim with ‘directional’ spokes – a design not previously available on the GT.

Round the back, the integrated boot lip spoiler is more pronounced, there’s a chrome strip which runs the width of the car, and the V8 models now feature a rear diffuser.

Inside changes are even subtler. There’s narrower seat fluting, revised dials and a new Breitling clock sitting in the centre of the dash. Bentley has also increased the size of the paddle shifters for the smooth eight-speed automatic gearbox, and also given them a grippy knurling effect. However, being mounted to the steering column rather than the wheel itself, they’re still not quite as easy to use as in rival cars.

Almost whisper quiet when cruising, under hard acceleration V8 makes a wonderful woofer like a World War Two fighter plane – and it’s particularly enjoyable with the roof down. More charismatic than the seismic rumble of the slightly punchier W12’s 6.0-litre? Well that’s a matter of personal opinion.

 

Weighing in at almost 2,500kg the GT Speed Convertible is certainly no sports car. Yet it’s no lumbering lummox either. The predictable handling, precise steering and impressive grip means you can hustle along a twisty road at quick a surprising lick. You can alter the stiffness of the air suspension to suit your driving style, but really they are best left in their mid setting for the best balance of comfort and body control.

As for changes under the skin, well, in the case of the V8S there aren’t any. But there’s little reason to be disappointed. The 4.0-litre twin turbo engine pumps out an impressive 520bhp and a 680Nm of torque – while the permanent all-wheel drive system means you can put that entire grunt down with unflappable ease, even in damp conditions.

Engine Power: 520 bhp
Engine Size: 4000 V8
Acceleration (0-60mph): 4.5 Secs
Top Speed: 191 mph
