We waited anxiously since its reveal back in March 2019 and it was well worth the wait. Bentley South Africa has made an announcement regarding the pricing for its new Continental GT V8 variants.

As prior mentioned, the Continental GT was released in March of 2019 and comes with an eight-cylinder engine. This engine is offered in both the coupe and convertible body styles just like with the W12. Pricing for the Continental GT V8 Coupe is said to start at R3 450 000 while the Continental GT V8 Convertible is set to start at a price of R3 795 000.

Each one of these luxury vehicles comes equipped with a twin-turbo charged 4.0-litre V8 engines. These engines offer a whooping 405 kW and 770Nm to all four wheels. The Coupe is estimated to hit a top speed of 318km/hr hitting 0-100km/h in just 4 seconds. Now that is a Need For Speed!

While the Crewe-based association’s nearby arm has expanded the costs of the W12 renditions apparently trying to account for the new eight-cylinder models, there’s still some cover, with the lead 12-cylinder form of the car coming in at R3 650 000, or some R145 000 more affordable than the V8 Convertible.

The pricing s set to be as follows:


Bentley Continental GT V8 Coupé: R3 450 000

Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible: R3 795 000

Bentley Continental GT W12 Coupé: R3 650 000

Bentley Continental GT W12 Convertible: R4 095 000
