It was already the most powerful luxury sports car in its class and now it is even more powerful. The Bentley Continental GT Speed 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine now produces 642PS (was 635PS) and it has an extra 20Nm of torque. This is notable in the acceleration time. Now the Continental GT Speed speeds up from 0-100 km in 4.1 seconds (0-60mph in 3.9 seconds). This is extremely fast for such a big sports car.
Can you notice the differences on the outside of the car? Yes you can! Bentley is clever enough to introduce a Black Edition just like their friends of Rolls Royce did a couple of weeks ago although Bentley did this in a more distinctive way. The black color is reserved for exterior brightware including window openings lamp bezels and the all-black five-spoke directional wheels. The brake calipers have a red or black option.
The Bentley Continental Speed Black Edition features contrast colors to the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser and there you have the choice in 4 different shades.
On the inside there is a mix of dark tones and strong highlights available al well as opulent leather with colors with contrasting stitching which are matching the exterior styling accents.
