Bentley introduces the Continental GT Speed

Bentley made a press release this morning in which they announced a minor facelift of the Bentley Continental GT (it got new front bumper and grille, plus an upgraded 6.0 W12 engine). But, more important, Bentley announced the introduction of the Bentley Continental GT Speed inspired by the “Speed” models introduced in 1923. This model has an upgraded engine, developing 600 HP (from the standard 552) and 750 Nm torque (15% more than the standard).

Due to lighter weight connecting rods, new pistons with anodized ring slots and a remapped engine management control unit, the Bentley Continental GT Speed is the first Bentley to go over 200 mph (320 km/h), with a top speed of 202 mph (326 km/h). The GT goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds.
