Utilizing a redeveloped version of the Continental’s 6.0-liter twin turbo W12 engine, the GT Speed is capable of 642 hp (a 7 hp increase from last year’s) and 620 lb-ft of torque (14.75 lb-ft increase). With a breath of fresh power, the GT Speed will be able to hit a top speed of 206 mph and rocket from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds (.2 seconds quicker). Along with a revamped engine are a slew of new modifications that make traveling in the car more luxurious than ever before. For a more refined connection to the road, Bentley has modified the steering wheel to have a more sculpted and sporty feeling, which fits the driver’s hands like never before. Additionally, Bentley has also added the option for semi-aniline hide that forms the straight-flute seating.

Unveiled along with the GT Speed is the new GT Speed Black Edition. This new variant for Bentley’s fastest is available for both the coupe and convertible styles. What makes the Black Edition special are the high gloss black trimmings on the exterior, carbon fiber trimming in the cabin, contrasting colors on the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser and contrasting leather that matches the exterior accents. Bentley continues to push their Continental GT Speed to its limit, resulting in a luxurious car that is both lavish and capable. The Continental GT Speed is a prime example of the English automaker’s ability to stay true to their heritage, all while keeping up with modern engineering.
