The new fastest Bentley churns out 616PS and goes from 0 to 100kph in about 4 seconds.
At the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, Bentley will debut their all new fastest Continental GT; for which they have already started accepting the bookings. The new 2013 Bentley Continental GT looks almost exactly the same as the normal Continental GT model, but produces a lot more power to achieve some astonishing figures in spite of weighing well over 2 tons.
The GT Speed version runs on heavily updated version of the 6.0-litre W12 that now produces massive 616PS and 800Nm of torque. With additional 49PS and 100Nm for all four wheels this car propels from naught to 100kph in four seconds; and goes on to top at 330kph. To properly utilise all this power, Bentley has modified the chassis, steering setup and also tweaked the suspension to lower the height of the car. This car also rides on 21-inch Pirelli PZero performance tyres with 275/35R/21 specs.
Apart from all the performance bits, the 2013 Continental GT Speed also gets loads of ‘Speed’ badging and design cues to differentiate it from the standard model. Bentley plans to start delivering the Speed GT versions by first week of October this year.
As for India – if you have enough money to buy this car and also to pay the equally mammoth customs duty applicable; we don’t think you will have problems in procuring one, as rest of the Bentley models are already available here.
