Paul Wright

Top end luxury in a cruiser capable of seating four - perfect all year round with its all-wheel drive, but definitely better in the summer months with the roof dropped and en route to the Côte d'Azur.

Launched in 2003, the Bentley Continental was the first car to be made under Volkswagen management, and has succeeded to become one of Bentley's finest grand tourers produced, using mass production manufacturing techniques from the factory in Crewe, Cheshire.

There were a few different models and updates to the first generation Continental, which was produced up until 2011. With the launch of the second generation proving popular, more models were made available such as the Continental GTC W12, the GT Speed Coupe, the GT Speed convertible, and of course, the model we have here, the Continental GT V8 S. A keen eye is needed to spot the subtle differences, such as the more pronounced wheel arches and different diffuser designs, depending on the model you chose.

This Bentley, belonging to Matthew, is a 2017 model which is powered by the 4.0 litre twin turbo V8, coupled to the ZF super smooth eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Matthew has owned this car since December 2017, so the car was just under 12 months old. In more recent years Matthew has not been using the car much and as such he'd decided to let someone else have the pleasure of owning this British luxurious grand tourer.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Paul after meeting Matthew the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I wanted a practical luxury tourer - the Bentley Continental GT V8 S ticked all the boxes, plus a few more.

Matthew purchased this beautiful Dark Sapphire Bentley Continental GT V8 S, as the second owner. With just 2,300 miles showing when he purchased it, he has covered only ~5,700 miles in his three and a half year ownership.

With Matthew having a few vehicles in his collection, and the Bentley not getting the use it deserves, he has decided to part with the Continental GT V8 S.

Vehicle Owner

Ask the Owner



The Bentley’s Dark Sapphire paintwork has a stunning purple tint to it - the colour looks even better when the sun gets on it - a great excuse to pop down to the South of France.

Wheels and Tyres

The 21" wheels are an optional extra for the Bentley, which are all in excellent condition with no damage that we could see at the time of our visit.

The tyres are all matching and look to have plenty of tread remaining.


The bodywork on the Bentley is in excellent condition as you can imagine with such low miles.

Looking around the car, there is nothing to mention in the way of any small dinks or dents - it's very well presented.

The roof is also in excellent condition, with no damage or areas of concern - it opens nice and smoothly in approximately 20 seconds.

Please see the gallery for more detailed images.


Dark Sapphire is the choice of colour by Bentley for this lovely Continental GT V8 S.

The paint is in excellent condition with no noticeable stone chips to the front end. There are a couple of small chips on the bottom of the wheel arch, but it has to be said that this is minimal.

Please see the image gallery for more detailed shots.

Glass and Trim

The glass is all in excellent condition, with no obvious scratches or chips which we could see at the time of our visit.

The trims and seals are all as you would expect - excellent.


Linen white leather immerses the interior of the Continental - offering enough luxury and comfort for four people.

Seats and Carpets

The fully electric leather seats in the Bentley are in excellent condition, with no signs of any wear to them thanks to such low mileage. They are stitched in blue with the Bentley logo to all four headrests, and the centers are perforated leather stitched by Bentley’s finest, in a diamond quilted pattern.

The carpets are in excellent order with no wear to be noted.

There are also some mats fitted to protect them. Inside the boot, again the plush carpet is nice and clean.


The dashboard is finished to the top with dark blue leather, and the linen coloured leather to the lower section, which is all in excellent order. The trim around the centre console and instruments are in piano black, which is all nice and clean, and also free from scratches.

The instrument binnacle lights up as it should, with no warning lights displayed. The odometer had a reading of just ~8,021 miles at the time of our visit. The Breitling clock is working as it should.

Please see the interior gallery for more detailed shots.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel is in good condition with no signs of wear, and is trimmed in matching leather to the seats and dashboard.

The multifunction buttons have a couple of tiny marks to the aluminium finish surround, possibly caused by a ring.

The gear lever is in good order with no noticeable marks to mention.


4.0 litre twin turbo V8 is what powers this 2,899kg machine along - it's certainly no slouch, with a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds.

Engine and Gearbox

The 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 produces 521 bhp and 502 lb-ft of torque, and is capable of 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph.

When you flick the key in the Bentley, the sound of the glorious V8 is fantastic as it barks into life, and then it evens out to a low tone.

The car is reported to drive really well and changes through the eight-speed automatic gearbox nice and smoothly, as you would expect.

Suspension and Brakes

The car sits well and has great road presence. Being the GT V8 S model, it sits 10mm closer to the ground and has uprated anti-roll bars over the standard GT version.

With just ~8,021 miles, the brakes show no signs of any wear, and the Bentley comes to a halt just as it should.

The Drive

Certainly a head turner with either the roof up or down.

The aggressive front grille looks fantastic as you see the Bentley approaching you in your rear view mirror.

Awesome performance with an engine note of an orchestra, yet the Continental is also practical, with enough room for four people and a good size luggage compartment. It could be the perfect luxury cruiser?

Electrics and Other

Everything in the car is reported to be working just as it should.

Equipped with everything you need. You can connect your phone and for your listening pleasure there is an 11 speaker stereo system in place, and the satellite navigation can be voice controlled.

The driver's seat has a 10 way adjustment control to ensure you get the position, just perfect for many happy miles of motoring.

History and Paperwork

Low miles has meant that the Bentley has had two services - but it has certainly been well cared for by Matthew.

With the car having such low miles it has only had two services, and there was an MOT carried out on the 13th November 2020.

Two keys are present along with V5, which shows one previous keeper.

This is your chance to get a GT S V8 for a lot less money than from a dealer. In fact if a Bentley main dealer had this car on their forecourt then we think it would be priced at over £100k when looking at the cars currently for sale. So with our guide of £84,000 to £88,000 then this really is your chance to save a significant amount of money. Of course you won't have the swanky showroom and free coffee to take advantage of, however, with the savings you'll make then you could afford a trip around the world. We know which deal we'd prefer.

Please note the personalised registration plate will be removed from the car.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and the vehicle is HPI clear.

Hi Matthew

Can you confirm the bodywork colour of this Bentley? In the descriptions it states it is imperial blue but this is a colour Bentley use for their interiors.




Hi Mark can you confirm the exact bodywork colour?


Hi Mark can you confirm the exact bodywork colour? Imperial blue is a colour Bentley offers for the leather interior not sure if the colour in the description is correct?
