Continental GT Speed bm gallery asset 1398x699 Whatever road you choose in life, do it from a position of unparalleled power and control.

From the moment your hands grasp the new Continental GT Speed’s sport steering wheel, you’re aware you’re taking control of Bentley’s ultimate two-door coupé. The twin-turbo engine produces an awe-inspiring 635 PS and 820 Nm of torque yet, thanks to the variable power assisted steering – which provides increased economy and reduced emissions – the drive remains precise through the most demanding corner.

The only equal of such limitless power is the exquisite reļ¬nement to be found in the Speed’s redesigned cabin, this introduces a more dynamic look to the upholstery, with a smaller, tighter diamond pattern in the hide.

If you love to drive far and fast but insist on travelling in absolute luxury, the Continental GT Speed awaits.

ENGINEERING
Bentley's W12 is a remarkable engine, both for its performance and its architecture. Best described as two narrow angle V6 engines sharing a common crankshaft, it delivers the refinement and power of a twelve-cylinder engine whilst remaining compact. Fed by twin-turbochargers, the W12 Speed specification which powers the Continental GT Speed offers a full spectrum of performance from whisper-quiet cruise to snarling full-throttle acceleration.

TRANSMISSION

The eight-speed transmission of the Continental GT Speed delivers both faster acceleration and improved fuel efficiency, with a commensurate reduction in CO2 emissions and increase to tank range. Not only that, it makes a fast car even faster, cutting acceleration times by ensuring that the engine is always at the ideal RPM for peak torque delivery. The transmission's faster, smoother gear changes are perfectly matched by the GT Speed's new gear box delivering the engine's power to all four wheels. Torque is biased toward the rear in a 60:40 ratio, which creates perfect cornering balance and reassuring grip.

SUSPENSION

By bringing the Speed models 10mm closer to the ground, Bentley's chassis engineering team laid the foundation for an even sportier driving experience. To do so they changed the springs, dampers, anti roll bars and supension bushes. The result is improved body control under hard cornering, together with greater agility.

INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM

At the heart of the Continental GT Speed’s touch screen infotainment system is a 30GB hard drive, which offers up to 15GB of storage space for music as well as a continent’s-worth of mapping data. As you drive, it provides real time monitoring of your tyre pressures and access to your phone contacts (either via Bluetooth or by inserting your SIM card). While the 15 Gigabytes of available music space is enough to last you on a round-the-world tour without hearing the same track twice, you can also play music via an iPod, MP3 player, the car’s own six-disc CD changer or even an SD card.

SOUND SYSTEM

Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) speakers, which combine the functions of separate tweeter and mid-range speakers in one unit, direct the sound with accuracy and provide greater clarity across the audible spectrum. Alternatively, the Naim™ for Bentley system, incorporating custom-built speakers and eight Digital Sound Processing modes, is available as an option.
