Bentley Continental GT Speed First Promo

The Bentley Continental GT has always been a bit of an overgrown sportscar, too heavy to stir the emotions. But one thing that it’s always had on its hand is plenty of power, thanks to its unique W12 engine. Now, the British carmaker has made something that’s a little bit better, a little bit more eager to get the pulse going.
It’s called the Continental GT Speed, and it’s the fastest production Bentley ever, thanks to an “exhilaration of a 625PS, 800Nm engine and eight-speed close-ratio transmission makes your heart race.”

All that power is necessary, because this brute weighs 2.3 tons, but is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in around four seconds on its way to doing its 330 km/h (205 mph) top speed.
