Bentley has released a bunch of new photos of the new V8 Continental GT & GTC ahead of its impending launch. Whilst this launch date is still unconfirmed, the model will have a base price of £123,850 in the UK and €136,000 in Europe. There have been no official confirmation of the price in the United States but it should come in at around $200,000.

The new entry level models of the Continental range are powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that is 40 percent more fuel efficient compared to the flagship 6.0-liter W12 model. This allows the V8 Continentals to travel over 500 miles (800 km) on a single tank of fuel. Power output is rated at 500 bhp (507 PS / 373 kW) with a peak torque of 660Nm (487 lb ft) allowing it to accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100kph) in 4.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 188mph (303 km/h).

The V8 version features a slightly modified exterior styling to distinguish it from its 6.0-liter W12 bigger brother. It includes a glossy black grille with chrome frame and centre bar, a red enamel Bentley ‘B' badge, and a black mesh three-segment front bumper fascia.
