While some people are always fussing about new cars and fantastic rides there always remains a group of people who would do anything to get a nice and economic car that will significantly reduce maintenance cost and fuel consumption. Perhaps this was the precise idea that hit the minds at Bentley Company when they announced that in 2012 a new model form Bentley will be introduced namely 2013 Bentley Continental GT V-8 because it is precisely the kind of car that will improve the common user expectations and benefits.
What’s So Great about the Continental GT V-8
The very first thing that catches the attention is the 2013 GT V-8’s fascinating decrease of fuel consumption. It can deliver an impressive 40% reduction of fuel consumption while it will keep up the same nice performance levels that the previous Continental GT’s have been delivering. It also has a very impressive 500hp and 4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that is certainly something that is ready to provide powerful performances. The 2013 GT V-8 also delivers 487 pound-feet of torque which is something some enthusiasts will find interesting and not to forget the 8-speed automatic transmission options that can really give this exciting car a significant boost.
The Relevance to the Reality
Bentley’s claims have been somewhat justified during the European test run of the 2013 Bentley Continental GT V-8. It has been seen providing 40% of better mileage which means it can run on 40% lower fuel consumption which is really great news! However, the expensive bit of engineering may cost the consumers quite a lot. Because of the advanced technology used in the 2013 GT V-8 this car’s initial price will be quite high though the 40% better mileage will come in handy in the continuous use and cost-cutting.
