Bentley Continental GT: zo onderscheidt u de W12 van de V8

Lange tijd was het erg stil rond Bentley, maar nu lijkt er weer wat leven in de Engelse brouwerij te komen. Kort na de Bentayga Speed heeft Bentley de Continental GT V8 onthuld. Op deze manier onderscheidt u de mannen van de jongens.

Allereerst de harde feiten tegenover elkaar:

  • Continental GT W12: 6.0 W12 biturbo, 635 pk, 900 Nm. 0-100 km/u in 3,7s, topsnelheid: 333 km/u
  • Continental GT V8: 4.0 V8 biturbo, 550 pk, 770 Nm. 0-100 in 4,0s, topsnelheid: 318 km/u

U ziet, voor de performance maakt het niet zoveel uit wat er gekozen wordt. Het verschil van 85 pk gaat u echt niet merken, het verschil in loopcultuur tussen de geciviliseerde W12 en de wat rauwere V8 echter wel. Maar dat is Geschmackssache, zoals ze in het VW-concern zullen zeggen. De V8 verandert op rustige momenten overigens in een viercilinder: in 20 milliseconden worden er vier pitten gedeactiveerd.

De Conti GT V8 is herkenbaar aan V8-badges op de voorschermen. Als de eigenaar - die eigenlijk een W12 wilde hebben - ze er uit schaamte heeft afgehaald, herkent u de auto aan de viervoudige uitlaatpijpen - de W12 heeft een dubbele ovaal. Al rijdend zal de kenner het verschil in motorgeluid direct herkennen, voor de overige gevallen zetten we de V8 (oranje) en de W12 (blauw) even onder elkaar. U ziet: ze verschillen uiterlijk nauwelijks.

Europa krijgt de Conti GT V8 - zowel als coupƩ als cabrio - vanaf het eerste kwartaal van 2020. Alle afbeeldingen vindt u onder de vergelijkplaatjes.
