Bentley has revealed a V8 version of its Continental GT.

This is the 'entry-level' Bentley grand tourer with a V8 engine instead of the monstrous, range-topping W12.

It's available in both coupe and convertible body styles. The V8, all-wheel drive model makes 404kW and 770Nm.

It sprints from zero to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

The V8 version is currently only marked for the USA and China, and will arrive in South Africa some time in 2020.
