Bentley Releases Full Performance Specs for Continental GT Speed
text size: A- A+
It is reportedly the fastest production Bentley ever, reaching an unprecedented top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph), thanks to its 616 hp twin-turbocharged W12 engine. This means that the GT Speed gets a 50 hp boost over the regular GT, while also receiving 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) more, putting the total figure at 800 Nm. Factor in both the power and torque increases and the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) figure of just over four seconds seems very beleavable - it reaches 100 mph (160 km/h) in nine seconds dead, as well.
Aside from the power boost, the GT Speed also gets a raft of fuel-saving updates, which amount to 12% improved efficiency over the outgoing model. The GT Speed retains the efficiency rating of the regular car, which stands at 19.5 mpg (14.5 l/100km). Furthermore, to keep the car planted firmly on the road, the GT Speed gets lowered and revised self-leveling suspension which makes the drive sportier when it needs to, while also offering the expected levels of comfort when it doesn’t.
