click above image for gallery of 2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed

Bentley released pricing today for its entire 2008 model lineup, which includes the recently announced Continental GT Speed, the most powerful Bentley ever produced and at $199,990, the most expensive model in the Continental line of cars. Prices appear to have gone up across the board save for a few Arnage models that will remain as expensive as they were last year. The company from Crewe also revealed that its upcoming Brooklands Coupe will be a 2009 model, and at $340,990 is the most expensive item on Bentley's menu. Price does not seem to be a deterrent for Bentley customers, however, as the first year's worth of Brooklands Coupe models has already sold out.

Check out the pricing data below and after the jump, as well as galleries of Bentley's two newest models, the Brooklands Coupe and Continental GT Speed.

      I think all of the Bentley cars a beautiful. Elegant. Definitely NOT "gaudy". They sell 5000+ because some people appreciate things that are "solid" "well made". I cite Bentley as an influence in my ( totally unrelated ) work.

      P.S. reading those prices made my eyes hurt though. Oh well.

      How Bentley sells 5000 of these every year and then Mercedes sells 400 CL65 every year is mind boggling. How do rich people that become rich by being smart suddenly become stupid?

      I saw a Continetal at the autoshow and the interior and exterior was nothing special. There was an Arnage there as well and boy was it ever nice. The Phanthom is even way better i just dont know why BMW wont take the two turbos they put on the 4.4 V8 and stick them on the 6.0 V12. The Phanthom has 444hp and could easily make 600hp and compete with these ugly beasts.

        I dare say less than half the rich people got that way by being smart.

      The only real Bentley in all that is the Brooklands. I was sad to see the monster Arnage discontinued but thats how it goes.

      selling a VW Phaeton platform for 200 grand and having all the new money morons flock to you I guess is what Bentley is after.

      The new steering wheel looks a lot better and this time not from the late 80's.

      Nice ass.

      When did elegant and gaudy become synonyms?
      • 7 Years Ago
      Just another drab, constipated, astonishingly overpriced, badly engineered German luxo-barge.

      What are they calling the color scheme this rebadged VW is painted, bowel movement brown?

      I have seen one of these coupes driving around the Toledo, OH area twice in the last week and it is a really good and impressive looking car. It really jumps out of the crowd of cars around it and grabs your attention.
