Save the kilt, Motor Trend’s Senior Features Editor Jonny Lieberman’s trip to Scotland is the true definition of an epic drive. We love Scotland. We love the historic places, we love the twisty roads, we love the great scenery, we love Scotch whiskey, we even love the rain. So we can’t imagine how awesome it would be to have not one, but two new Bentley Continental GT V8 – one coupe and one convertible – at your disposal to tour the country in.
Actually, we can. Just need to watch the video after the jump!
Bentley V8 engine delivers maximum power of 500 bhp (507 PS/373 kW) at 6000 rpm and an extraordinary peak torque of 660 Nm (487 lb ft) which is available across virtually the entire rev range from 1700 to 5000 rpm, providing exhilarating performance and effortless power delivery in the Bentley tradition. Combined with a new close-ratio 8-speed automatic transmission, this translates into a sub-5 second acceleration time for the 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and a top speed of over 180 mph (290 km/h).
