BENTLEY GT SPEED
Whatever road you choose in life, do it from a position of unparalleled power and control. From the moment your hands grasp the new Continental GT Speed’s sport steering wheel, you’re aware you’re taking control of Bentley’s ultimate two-door coupé. The twin-turbo engine produces an awe-inspiring 642 PS and 840 Nm of torque yet, thanks to the variable power assisted steering – which provides increased economy and reduced emissions – the drive remains precise through the most demanding corner.
The Continental GT Speed's redesigned front and rear spoiler give fresh expression to the heritage of Bentley grand touring. The matrix grille and air intakes of the Speed are in a dark-tint chrome finish and are matched to equally striking dark-tint front and rear lamps. The dark-tint 21" Speed alloy wheels are unique to this model, and are also available in silver, should you prefer. Large, elliptical exhaust tailpipes feature a rifled interior, while the engine note that emerges from them is deeper and more emphatic.
The name Mulliner has been associated with some of the greatest Bentleys of all time, including the iconic 'R' Type Continental of 1952. It is appropriate therefore that the Continental GT Speed is equipped with the Mulliner Driving Specification as standard.
Diamond quilted leather seats, indented leather headlining and embroidered winged 'B' emblems on the headrests add a touch of handcrafted distinction. Drilled alloy pedals, a knurled sports gear lever and Jewel oil and fuel filler caps are inspired details from an inspiring heritage.
The Continental GT Speed represents Bentley performance at its most uncompromising: featuring all-wheel drive transmission, a chassis tune which delivers thrilling agility and a deeper and more exhilarating exhaust note, the GT Speed is capable of devastating acceleration and enduring pace.
With peak power of 642 PS, the Continental GT Speed is the most powerful model in the current two-door Bentley Continental family. A full throttle standing start sees 60 mph flash past in 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds). Top speed, should you have the opportunity to explore it, is 206 miles an hour.
Yet Bentley’s engineering team has ensured that the GT Speed engine and powertrain is just as fuel-efficient as the Continental GT, with refinements to the engine, transmission and turbocharger making an overall improvement of 13% in fuel economy.
