Bentley Motor Limited, the British luxury automaker wholly owned by the multinational conglomerate, Volkswagen Group has launched the much sought after Continental GT Speed, the fastest performance car offered by the company. Bentley Continental GT Speed, a two-door Grand Touring coupé has been currently on showcase at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The high performance version of the Continental GT has been blessed with an upgraded iteration of the 6 litre, 48 valve, four-cam, twin turbocharged W12 engine churning out maximum power of 625 PS at 6000 rpm and a top torque of 800 Nm to render class leading high-end performance with frisky handling combined with the unique Bentley design cues apt for the speed enthusiasts.
With ZF 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox that utilises the intelligent adaptive control for swift gear changes enables a complete hold over the circulation of massive power.
Mr. Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors Limited, said during its launch, "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."
Protruding styling changes such as dark hues on the matrix front grille, exhaust tailpipes replicating a ‘rifle’ design and lower air intakes enhance the exterior appeal of the new Continental GT Speed. While maintaining the sturdy and elegantly premium stance of the coupe, its unique chassis, improved steering, lowered ride height and suspension systems highly assists in delivering top performance.
