The Bentley Continental GT Speed has got faster as the company has added more muscle to the fastest growing Bentley ever.
The updated engine packs 10 extra horses, up to 626 bhp, along with 605 lb-ft (820 Nm) of torque. That upgrade pins an extra mph on the car’s top speed, letting confident drivers work their way right up to 206 mph/331 km/h. Zero to 60 mph happens in an even 4 seconds.
The luxury also comes with a few modifications. The front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser are painted to match the body color for the first time. Red brake calipers peek through the 21-in Speed wheels, which get a dark tint finish, as do the headlamps and tail lamps.
If outside is better, inside is best, the new Speed patterning package combines a dark monotone base with contrasting stripes and stitching.
Bentley also announced the availability of its 500-bhp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine to the Flying Spur sedan. The Flying Spur V8 model gets a few subtle visual distinctions, including chrome figure eight exhaust tips and a red center in the Bentley wing emblem.
