Powered by the usual W12 engine, this time the fastest-ever Bentley produces 625PS and 800Nm.
As promised last week, Bentley has launched its fastest-ever model in the form of new Continental GT Speed at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The company has already started taking orders for the 2013 GT Speed from all over the globe and deliveries are expected to begin by October this year.
Visually, the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed looks exactly the same as the normal Continental GT model and is also powered by the usual 6-litre, W12 engine. But this time, the engine has been heavily retuned to churn out a massive 625PS of max power and 800Nm of max torque.
Power to all the four wheels is delivered via an eight-speed ZF transmission. The 0 to 100 mark is achieved in mere 4 seconds with a top speed of 330kmph. To properly utilize all this power, Bentley has modified the chassis, steering setup and has also tweaked the suspension to lower the height of the car.
The additional notably bit about the new model is that it is more eco-friendly and economical than the previous Bentley Continental.
“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,” said Wolfgang Durheimer, Bentley’s chairman and chief executive.
