Bentley V8 thunders over Goodwood's hills
- New Continental GT 4.0 litre V8 prepares for Goodwood Festival of Speed with first high-speed runs
- Supersports Convertible ISR and Mulsanne also take on classic hill climb
Crewe/Goodwood — Bentley’s new Continental GT 4.0 litre V8 tried Goodwood’s hill climb for size and instantly hit its stride in preparation for this summer’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Goodwood’s VIP guests got an early glimpse of this latest member of the Continental family as well as hearing the unique, sporting rumble of Bentley’s latest high performance engine.
“The team had an excellent day at Goodwood with the new Continental V8 and we’re now looking forward to returning in the summer as one of the Festival’s official partners and with our leading ‘Bentley Boy’ drivers behind the wheel,” commented Steven Egan, Bentley’s Marketing Operations Manager.
The Bentley Driving Team also took the opportunity to give the world’s fastest luxury convertible, the 6.0 litre W12 Continental Supersports Convertible ISR, as well as the company’s flagship, the 6.75 litre V8 Mulsanne, some early season and high-speed workouts.
