The Continental GTC will have new interior appointments as well, such as a new Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer unique to the V8 models, four hide colors for the leather interior, three hood color options and a unique two-tone leather color split.

This V8 engine fulfills Bentley’s environmental commitments with a host of green engine initiatives. The V8 features variable displacement, low friction bearings, high-pressure direct injection, thermal management, and turbo charging.
