The Continental GT V8 version of the Continental GT uses a twin-turbo 4-litre V8 engine (developed jointly with Audi). The 3993cc V8 produces 500 hp (373 kW) and 487 lb·ft (660 N·m). 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.
The Bentley Continental GT V8 is a low Class B car with the following rank statistics:
The Continental has good nitro and top speed and its acceleration is average. But similar to the Ford F-150 in Class D, it is a very heavy car and has poor handling. Overall, it is not a favored car for any type of events in the game as many Class B cars overshadow it.
As of the Motorcycles Update, the Continental costs 62,000 to purchase (originally 35,000, then 52,500) and 332,375 to max out. The Bentley Continental GT V8's buying price was increased to 750 on March 30, 2018.
The Continental was also part of the 21st Multiplayer Season, Spring Fling Season 2 as a Pro League reward. Players who already had the Continental would win 75,000 instead.
