The latest addition to the Bentley Continental family is the GT Speed model. It's a sports coupe, and the fastest one that Bentley has ever made. It's got a 6-liter, 616-hp, 12-cylinder engine that can bring it up to speeds of 205 mph, and can go from 0 to 60 in 4 seconds. There is a new 8-speed transmission built in it, which brings a 13% increase in fuel economy. It has a four-wheel drive, same as its predecessors. The mpg estimates according to the manufacturer are 13 mpg/city and 28 mpg/highway.
The Bentley GT Speed's impressive exterior design is bound to provoke sighs of admiration among everyone who sees it. There is a series of changes made in comparison to the previous models. They have lowered its ride height with a self-leveling suspension system helping it to adapt to changing road conditions. The front grille and the air intakes are dark tinted, instead of the standard chrome ones. It's fitted with 21-inch silver or optional black alloy wheels.
The whole body is made of 5083 aluminum alloy. The fenders are formed using pressurized air, which creates smooth, unbroken shapes. Buyers can opt for a rear spoiler and rear bumper finished in carbon fiber.
The interior is a combination of luxurious and sporty features. There are leather seats and door trims, as well as leather-wrapped steering wheel, and you can even get the Bentley emblem embroidered in the headrests for an additional fee.
There is also more than enough technological features that can keep passengers entertained. The 8-inch touchscreen displays navigation information and info about the audio system, which provides surround sound through 8 speakers. You will be able to connect an iPod or an SD card to it.
When it comes to the price of the Continental GT Speed, at $220,000 it is obviously not something that everyone can afford, but we all know that quality and luxury don't come cheap.
In conclusion, the British car manufacturer has come up with an excellent coupe with elegant and stylish looks, that offers a comfortable ride in a luxurious interior and great speeds at the same time.
