Bentley has always been synonymous with a gentleman’s sports cars. WO Bentley reserved the title ‘Speed’ for more driver focused models, built with superior performance in mind and modified with high compression engines and large carburettor setups. The new Continental GT and GT Speed were available to order from August 2007. The GT Speed was unveiled at Laguna Village Polo in 2007 followed by the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Continental GT Speed is a version of the GT with increased engine power to 610 PS and 750 N m of torque. It also includes a lowered ride height, uprated spring/damper settings and uprated anti-roll bars for improved agility and body control. The Speed has unique 9.5j x 20-inch wheels with bespoke performance tyres, retuned speed-sensitive Servotronic system, solid-mounted front subframe and stiffer rear bushings, Dynamic mode for the Bosch 8.1 ESP system, front grille and lower air intakes in dark-tinted chrome matrix and wider rifled sports exhaust system tail pipes.
This Continental GT Speed we have in stock is a perfect example of the fastest car produced by Bentley at its launch. It is capable of 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, with a top speed of 202mph. Of course, Bentley aren’t solely known for producing powerful sports cars, their trademark is luxury second to none.
