Bentley Unveil Continental GT Speed and Black Edition Models
Bentley have just launched two new models based on the Continental; GT Speed and Black Edition
GT Speed comes with more power and torque and becomes the fastest production Bentley ever, with a top speed of 331 km/h. The GT Speed now produces 633hp – up from 626hp – and 20 Nm of extra torque, bringing its total to a forceful 840 Nm. This additional torque is applied through the entire rev range via careful reoptimisation of boost control, raising the Grand Tourer’s renowned “torque plateau” of continuous maximum torque delivery from 2,000-5,000 rpm, and bringing even greater acceleration performance. As a result, the 0 to 100 km/h sprint time has dropped to just 4.1 seconds.
Bentley is also introducing the Continental GT Speed Black Edition which is available as both coupe and convertible bodystyles. The customers’ choice of body colour is complimented by a high gloss black finish to the exterior brightware, including the window openings and lamp bezels. All-black 21″ five-spoke directional wheels cover distinctive brake calipers, which can be specified in red or black finishes.
To add a further unique and striking twist, the Black Edition also features contrast colours to the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser in four different shades: Hallmark, Beluga, St James’ Red and a new shade, Cyber Yellow. Customers can also choose to colour-match the door mirrors as a final exterior accent.
The new GT Speed and GT Speed Black Edition models are available to order now, with customer deliveries this summer.
