The new Bentley Continental GT Speed is the most capable and dynamic road-going car to have ever been made in the marque’s 101-year history, with no compromise to comfort or luxury. The ultimate performance-focussed interpretation of the world’s benchmark luxury Grand Tourer is newly launched and continues the bloodline of the acclaimed sporting Continental GT Speed model.
Designed, engineered, developed and handcrafted in Crewe – at Bentley’s carbon neutral luxury automotive factory – this third-generation Continental GT Speed offers the pinnacle of performance with advanced chassis technology harnessed specifically for this newest model. New Electronic All-Wheel Steering enhances the dynamic nature of the Speed in BENTLEY and COMFORT driving modes, while in SPORT mode, the steering combines with Bentley Dynamic Ride and an electronic limited slip differential for a level of agility unlike any other Bentley road car. Overall grip is balanced between the front and rear wheels, and in SPORT this is calibrated with a more rear-biased torque–split in all driving scenarios.
The new GT Speed is the ultimate performance-focused expression of Bentley’s definitive Grand Tourer, yet maintains the luxury, comfort and usability of its siblings. It is equipped with an uprated version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine, delivering 659 PS (650 bhp) – a 4 per cent increase of 24 PS over the current W12 model – whilst maintaining an extraordinary 900 Nm (664 lb.ft) of torque. With exceptional handling, this results in a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h) and 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds), a reduction of 0.1 second.
The muscular bodywork of the Continental GT has been amplified still further on the GT Speed. Unique exterior detailing complements a powerful, athletic stance, blending seamlessly with the effortless elegance inherent to the Continental GT. Speed models add a Dark Tint radiator grille and lower bumper grille, as well as unique, more sculpted sports sills, a Dark Tint radiator matrix and discreet Speed badging in chrome on the front fender.
