The British manufacturer will be unveiling its new Continental GT Speed during the Goodwood Festival of Speed, held June 28 to July 1st. The new GT Speed boasts exceptional performances, a distinctive design, nimble handling and sporty luxury to seduce both the car and speed enthusiasts.
The car is powered by a 616-horsepower W12 engine, taking the car from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, and then up to a top speed of 329 km/h. The car was also fitted with an 8-speed automatic gearbox that reduces fuel consumption by 12% as well as carbon dioxide 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."
