Bentley Continental GT Speed Coupe Specification Revealed

Bentley has revealed full technical details of its exciting new Continental GT Speed Coupe, which will be the fastest Bentley car ever.  The car can achieve a top speed of 205 mph and comes with an all-wheel drive powertrain and will be the performance flagship Bentley. The company revealed all the information of the car ahead of its official international debut at the upcoming Moscow Motor Show on 29 August. The new Continental GT Speed is the fastest road-car Bentley has ever produced and orders are being taken now, with deliveries scheduled to start in October 2012.

Bentley Continental GT Speed Coupe is powered by Bentley’s iconic 6-liter twin-turbo W12 engine; it develops 625 PS (616 bhp) at 6000 rpm up 50 PS versus the standard Continental GT with 800 Nm of torque available from 2000 to 5000 rpm (up 100 Nm) for instantly accessible high performance. The engine is coupled with a new ZF eight-speed close-ratio automatic transmission and state-of-the-art engine management software. The GT Speed accelerates 0 to 60mph in just 4.0 seconds, and reaching 100 mph (160 km/h) from a standing start in just 9.0 seconds.

However, this newest, most powerful addition to the Continental stable still displays the refinement and suppleness that makes a Bentley unique. Even the exhaust note, deeper and more exhilarating under hard acceleration, remains civilized and refined during high-speed cruising. Its all-wheel-drive system, biased 60:40 in favor of the rear, offers reassuring stability and the potential to access the prodigious performance all year round in virtually any weather conditions or road surface.

Subtle signature design cues distinguish the GT Speed from its stable-mates, including exclusive 21-inch, ten-spoke alloy wheels, dark-tint matrix to the radiator shell and lower bumper grilles and ‘rifled’ exhaust tailpipes. Inside the handcrafted cabin, the Speed models are specified exclusively with the Mulliner Driving Specification, featuring quilted, perforated leather and bright metal detailing plus a broader choice of optional technical finishes. This now includes the exclusive-to-Speed dark tint aluminum as well as carbon fibre. The result is a highly distinctive, contemporary, sporting, luxury coupe.

The 575 PS (567 bhp) W12 powertrain of the Continental GT coupe and GTC convertible models also benefits from enhancements made to the more powerful GT Speed. In addition to the new engine management system and eight-speed transmission, all W12 engines now feature an energy recuperation system. Together, these deliver a 12% improvement in fuel economy and CO2 emissions across the GT W12 range and a 10% improvement for the GTC W12.
