New Bentley Continental GT Speed Revealed - The Fastest Production Bentley Ever

New Bentley Continental GT Speed Coupe is the fastest production Bentley ever.

Powered by a 616bhp (up from 567bhp) 6.0-litre turbocharged W12 it enables the Continental GT Speed reach a new top speed of 205mph and accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.0sec.

The new Speed also gets a new close-ratio, ZF eight-speed automatic transmission with an overall twelve per cent improvement in fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

Commenting on the new GT Speed, Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive says:

“For nearly a decade, the Bentley Continental GT has defined high luxury, high performance grand touring and the unique W12 engine has been so successful that Bentley is now the world’s largest producer of 12-cylinder engines. The new GT Speed with its harder-edged, sportier character reaffirms this pinnacle positioning and continues to broaden the worldwide appeal of the Continental coupe.”

New Bentley Continental GT Speed will make its debut next week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 28th June until 1st July, with first customer deliveries in the autumn. Prices are expected to start from £150,000.
