Bentley introduces new Continental GT 2014
Bentley‘s iconic 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine has been pushed even further, now developing 635 PS (626 bhp / 467 kW) and a record 820 Nm of torque. The new Bentley Continental GT Speed coupe reaches a top speed of 331 km/h – the fastest production Bentley ever – while the revised convertible can reach 327 km/h.
The extra dynamic performance of the Continental flagship model is complemented by a more distinctive visual presence. The sharp front splitter, discrete side skirts and elegant rear diffuser are finished to match the exterior paint color for the first time. The new GT Speed is given a more signature look through the use of a dark tint finish applied to the 21″ Speed wheel design, headlamps and tail lamps. The exterior modifications are completed with red-painted brake calipers and a stylish chrome “Speed” badge fitted to the front fenders, while a new signature Speed paint color of Candy Red is now available.
The visual changes continue inside the cabin of the GT Speed, starting with a completely new color split reserved exclusively for the Speed models. Starting with a dark monotone interior, accent stripes in a contrasting color are applied across the doors, rear panels, fascia wings, inner console and gear lever. Matching contrasting stitching is then sewn to various aspects of the cabin, with a new cost option to continue contrast stitching through the diamond quilting of the seats and doors. Speed branding is also sewn to the front and rear headrests, while a subtle yet elegant chrome “Speed” badge adorns the passenger side fascia panel.
