The introduction of a V8 engine on the Bentley Continental GT led to a lot of debate whether the downsizing makes financial sense or not for a potential owner. Well, it seems that the answer is “yes”, as the vehicle’s EPA ratings, which have just arrived, show.
The vehicle is rated at 15 mpg (15.7 l/100 km) city and 24 mpg (9.8 l/100 km) highway. To get an idea of what this exactly means, we’ll tell you that the W12 Continental GT gets a rating of 12 mpg (19.6 l/100 km) city and 19 mpg (12.4 l/100 km) highway.

If we also ad the fact that the V8 is easier to buy (about $18,000 easier, if you live in the US), the fresh Conti starts making sense. Oh and don’t worry, the car has plenty of muscle, so it will allow you to go crazy and throw those EPA number out the window if you want to.
