2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S: The classiest hot rod on the bright yellow block

bentley It wants to stand out… From the color, to the noise, the 2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S is a high-dollar luxury droptop that looks to make its presence known. It’s the noise that has me most interested, of course, as the color is not my cup of delightful British tea. The noise is produced by the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine mounted under the hood. It generates 521 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to make the 0-60 run in just over four seconds. It’s also enough to propel this not-so-light on its feet brawler on to its top speed of 191 miles per hour. Did I say “stand out”? I meant blast out… [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoenwmThmMo[/youtube] [Disclaimer: Bentley flipped us the keys to the new Continental GT V8 S and included a tank of gas. I included a far lower tax bracket than this car is used to shuttling around.]
