Updated Bentley Continental GT Speed with more power and Flying Spur V8 revealed

Bentley has unveiled the updated Continental GT Speed with enhanced power and style.

The iconic 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine has been pushed even further, now developing 626bhp (+10bhp) and 820 Nm of torque.

The new GT Speed coupe has a top speed of 206mph (331 km/h) – the fastest production Bentley ever – while the revised convertible can reach 203mph (327 km/h).

There are also visual updates, with front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser finished to match the exterior paint colour for the first time. The 21-inch Speed alloy wheels have a dark tint finish now, hiding red-painted brake callipers.

Bentley has also unveiled the new 500bhp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 for the Flying Spur, joining the Flying Spur flagship W12 model.

The Flying Spur V8 accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 183mph (295 km/h).

The V8 model is distinguished from the flagship W12 sibling with eight chromed exhaust tips, while the Bentley winged badge receives the usual red centre to denote the V8 engine. The front bumper grilles are finished in black, with a black “wing” insert.

Updated Continental GT Speed and Flying Spur V8 will debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show with first customer deliveries in the spring.
