Bentley Unveils Fastest Bentley Ever

620bhp, 205mph and more torque than ever car in the world put together, the new Bentley GT Continental Speed is quite a car. More than that, it’s actually the fastest Bentley ever made, which is unsurprising when you find out the original Speed’s W12 engine has been uprated to produce even more power than before.

620bhp, 205mph and more torque than ever car in the world put together, the new Bentley GT Continental Speed is quite a car. More than that, it’s actually the fastest Bentley ever made, which is unsurprising when you find out the original Speed’s W12 engine has been uprated to produce even more power than before.
 
Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley's Chairman and Chief Executive said: "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."
 
0-62mph takes just 4.2 seconds – which, for a big bruiser like this, is impressive – and the 205mph top speed will feel comfortable thanks to the Speed’s four-wheel-drive system. So basically, it’s as good a car as you could ever ask for. 
 
No word on pricing yet, but car finance fans can rest assured it’ll be upwards of £150,000.
