The British do several things well: royalty, industrial advancements, tea, and class. The former cannot be any better expressed than with Bentley. Even though the brand switched hands and the ownership is now German, that actually isn’t a bad thing. Ever since the takeover by the Volkswagen Group, the synonymous British elegance and class are joined by German precision and attention to details. As a result, the contemporary Bentley models are some of the finest high-performance luxury machines the car world has seen. The same principle can easily be appointed to the Bentley Continental GT V8 S model range.
Introduced in 2013, the idea was to offer a more performance-focused driving alternative to the standard V8 model, while retaining its distinctive red enamel winged ‘B’ badges. The vehicle comes with a sports suspension lowered by 10mm, revised damping and uprated anti-roll bars improved agility, body control and cornering relative to the Continental GT V8, while the recalibrated steering provides enhanced feedback and feel.
The Continental GT V8S models feature a 4.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers 520 bhp (388 kW / 528 PS at 6,000 rpm) and 680 Nm of torque. As a result, the heavy hitter can reach 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, before climbing all the way up to 192 mph (309 km/h).
Additionally, the vehicle features a clean and unsuspecting body kit. This consists of a front splitter, side sills, and a rear diffuser. The kit boosts aerodynamic performance by reducing front-end lift, thus improving stability at higher speeds. The look is completed by a striking gloss black radiator grille and 20-inch open spoke wheels, complete with red painted brake calipers. To many, this is the pinnacle of Bentley’s offerings in the Continental GT range – if you don’t want to go to with the more aggressive and track oriented Bentley Continental GT3-R – that is.
However, the only field the British car maker doesn’t excel is the wheels. Even though the company offered 21-inch seven-spoke wheels in the Black Edition, for many many owners, that just felt underwhelming.
This is where we step in.
This particular Arctica White Bentley Continental GT V8S comes from EVS Motors, our authorized dealership in Texas. With their vision for a sleek and appealing build, we’ve created a set of perfectly matching ADV15 Track Spec CS Series fifteen-spoke wheels. EVS Motors opted-in for wheels sized 22×9.5 in the front and 22×11 in the rear, filling up Bentley’s huge wheel arches perfectly. Thanks to advanced engineering and custom, per application wheel design and machining, we’ve taken into account the excessive forces of such a high load rating vehicle and incorporated them into a wheel design that provides not only a good looking wheel but also, a weight optimized and performance oriented one.
The wheels feature a Polished with Gloss Clear finish for both the wheel front and lips.
The selected wheel design fits the British gentlemen like a glove, adding that perfect final touch the vehicle needed. Grab a detailed look a the end result in the media gallery below.
