The 2020 Bentley Continental GTC V8 Is a Different Sort of Driver’s Car.
The third-generation Continental GT rides on the same platform as the Porsche Panamera, though the Bentley is slightly shorter and wider. In V-8 form, it uses the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine as the Panamera Turbo. It makes 542 horsepower along with 568 lb-ft of torque, it’s actually the highest-revving engine ever put in a Bentley. This is a truly fast car, but there’s nearly no sensation of speed. The number on the speedometer is almost always higher than you think it’s going to be. If you get pulled over, just tell the officer you couldn’t tell how fast you were going because the car is just so damn refined.
