The 2023 Bentley Continental GT S features black trim and a sports exhaust system.
2023 Bentley Continental GT S – Overview
The cruiser gets a more aggressive look thanks to blacked-out exterior trim and a two-tone interior, but there’s nothing new.
Here are the major highlights:
- The V-8 Bentley Continental GT and GTC convertibles will receive a new S trim for 2023.
- The S gets a performance exhaust and new 22-inch and 21-inch wheel styles, while the engine remains intact.
- The exterior features black trim, while the interior is two-tone and adorned with S insignia.
Design & Aesthetics
The grille and exterior detail, including the S emblem on the front fender, is blackened out, leaving only the Bentley logo and text in chrome.
The quad exhaust pipes, as well as the headlights and taillights, are colored.
The S comes with two distinct wheel options: a 22-inch design in either black or Pale Brodgar Satin or a 21-inch design with both black and bright finishes.
Behind the new wheel designs, red-painted brake calipers can be seen. S logo is stitched on the headrest and adorns the dashboard and door sills, while the inside gets a two-tone design, plenty of plush materials, and S badges.
Engine Specs & Performance
Bentley is refining its luxury cruiser with the new 2023 Continental GT S and convertible GTC S, claiming that the new submodels will improve “driving performance and aesthetic presence.”
The twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 will be the only engine available in the S model; the twin-turbo 6.0-liter W-12 was left out due to its enormous weight.
The mechanicals is substantially unchanged, but the GT S and GTC S receive more pronounced cosmetic accents to help the luxury coupe stand out.
The HP & torque ratings remain unchanged, but the engine still produces 542 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque.
A 2020 model with the V-8 clocked in at 3.4 seconds to 60 mph, outstanding for a car weighing nearly 5000 pounds in Car and Driver testing.
While the engine is the same, the S comes with a standard performance exhaust that should remind spectators of the V-8 beast’s 542 horsepower.
Bentley hasn’t announced pricing, but we expect it to be somewhere between the basic V-8 model’s $220,525 starting price and the Speed’s $280,225 starting price, with the convertible adding roughly $20,000 to the price.
