Updated Bentley Continental GT Speed gets even more power

By ,

The new and improved Bentley Continental GT Speed is making its debut and adding even more power and torque to what is still the fastest production Bentley ever made. The company also expands the Speed family with a striking Black Edition model.

The 6.0L W12 engine in the Continental GT Speed now develops 633 horsepower (up from 626) and sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds. Impressively, each unit is hand-built by a team of 30 technicians over 12.5 hours.

Meanwhile, the new Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition, available in both coupe and convertible body styles, features a high gloss black finish complementing the customer’s choice of body colour. Riding on 21” black alloy wheels, it sports contrast colours on the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. Inside, the Mulliner GT Design seats and centre console are bordered by contrasting leather.

Pricing for the Bentley Continental GT Speed and Black Edition models will be announced a bit later. They are available to order now in the U.K., with deliveries starting this summer.
