For those who love the rich exhaust note of a V8 engine, there is no experience quite like driving a Continental GT V8 S Convertible. Like its hard-topped sibling, the luxury convertible version of the newest Continental delivers significant improvements in performance over the original Continental V8: an even higher top speed, tighter suspension and improved handling. But it's the sound of that monstrous V8 engine as the wind whistles past that makes the Continental GT V8 S Convertible such an irresistible proposition.
Sporting details are visible all over the car, from the Beluga gloss body kit and door mirrors to the V8 S badge emblazoned proudly on the wing. Luxurious it may be; exhilarating it most certainly is. With seating for four adults and all the luggage space you need, the Continental GT V8 S Convertible is a grand tourer in every sense. But as you take to the road with the top down, you could be forgiven for feeling that really, it's all about the drive, not the destination.
