Cylinder deactivation technology effectively turns the V8 into a V4 to improve fuel economy by 8%. Other changes, including on-demand steering assistance, weight reduction, better engine heat management, overrun alternator charging and eco-tyres, improve overall fuel consumption by 40% from the W12's 17.1 mpg to the V8's 26.1 mpg.
The vehicle was unveiled in 2012 North American International Auto Show, followed by SkyLounge in Munich, 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
It is one of the few Bentley Continental GT to have a V8 engine. The Bentley Continental GT is a competitor to the Maserati GranTurismo Sport.
The Continental GT V8 is a low-mid end Class B car, has a starting rank of 1240, extended up to 1396 via upgrading, and 1448 (shared with the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic) with all levels of Pro Kits equipped.. It costs 35,000 to purchase and 265,900 to max out.
The Continental GT V8 has good nitro and top speed and its acceleration, though being a heavy car. But similar to the Ford F-150 in class D, it is a very heavyweighted car, so it has poor handling, although fortunately not the worst in the game, especially when drifting. In spite of this good performance, it is not a favored car for any type of events in the game.
The GT V8 qualifies for the following events:
- An Elimination event in Season 4 on the Barcelona Reverse track. Due to its acceleration, it is difficult to win the event.
- A Versus event in Season 5 against the Maserati GranTurismo Sport on the Tokyo Reverse track. Due to the track being long and the Continental GT V8 has far better nitro efficiency than the GranTurismo Sport, it performs far better than the GranTurismo Sport.
