[VIDEO] Bentley Continental GT Speed gets tested out by Auto Express
The guys from Auto Express have recently taken out the Bentley Continental GT Speed for a spin as the model has been taken almost to its top speed on the track.
After being officially unveiled during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, just a few months ago, the new Bentley Continental GT Speed is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of a new video, which is showing the most powerful Bentley model ever being taken almost to its top speed on the track. And when we say “almost”, we mean “almost”, because the track ran out until it could hit its top speed.
The Bentley Continental GT Speed is coming in both coupe and convertible body styles and it has tinted headlights and taillights, red brake calipers, “Speed” badging on the front fenders, 21-inch alloy wheels and a lowered suspension system, amongst others. Power is being provided by a 6.0 liter W12 engine, rated at 635 HP (467 kW) and 820 Nm (605 lb-ft) of torque. The model can reach a top speed of 331 km/h (206 mph) for the Coupe and 327 km/h (203 mph) for the Convertible.
