Published: Oct 14, 2012
Description: When Bentley rolled out the V8 version of its Continental GT last year, we wondered what would be the fate of the W12. In stock form, after all, the twelve-cylinder twin-turbo develops 567 horsepower ...

These bad boys got insane amounts of power! I happened to borrow my buddys modded NSX and here comes this Continental SS... I felt like i never even stepped on my accelerator.. He was just gone as fast as I seen him come!

Over here the cheapest I've seen is 46k

Cars.com I've looked it up. Theres a few, but way outta state. LOL

Im sure a used Bentley still is over 50k. A salvage title one might be around that though.
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 14, 2012
50k plus... But you can find a few used ones for that amount.
John Serely Oct 14, 2012
I agree, stephen
Andrew Hubbard Oct 14, 2012
Absolutely amazing. The blue looks better IMO.
Stephen Reed Warren II Oct 14, 2012
50k? Haha. I love that they are priced high....i don't want to see every Schmuck who makes over 100k squeazin in these things. You gotta make serious money to roll in these
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 14, 2012
For whom? I don't have 50k lying around my place! LOL
John Serely Oct 14, 2012
@author it's priced just right! I love this car. Great GT
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 14, 2012
Nice car, just too damn expensive...
Description: The current top of the line is the Continental GT Speed, whose upgraded W12 produces 625 horsepower to make it the fastest Bentley ever made. It's still five horses shy of the most powerful, howe...

I doubt even that much. I say it will leave the factory with around 670-700 hp most likely. And it's capable horsepower is probably more around 1600 with a TT setup. V8 is still better though. There are no 12 cylinders making 8000bhp anytime soon. Ha
Thibault Leroy Oct 14, 2012
Yeah i agree with spencer
chikenbag Oct 14, 2012
agreed with spencer
Spencer Warkentin Oct 14, 2012
Yeah it could probably produce about 1000 but I'd say with bentleys focus on reliability none will leave the factory with more than 750-800
Brandon Lidy Oct 14, 2012
With the twin turbos, close to 1000 most likely
Oscar Vaca Oct 14, 2012
What do you think this engine can really produce? I'm asking everyone in general. please answer.
David Justice Oct 14, 2012
Bring it on Bentley! Don't give up on any 12 cylinder engines; W or V. MPGs and emissions be damned!
Serge Pankratov Oct 15, 2012
Shit. This is whats gonna cause the armageddon!! Lol
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 14, 2012
Aight! Chickenbag!
Zeus Mocha Oct 14, 2012
I second Carlton's gesture
chikenbag Oct 14, 2012
you crush the hell outta them streets norman, I'm down!
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 14, 2012
Imaging me crushing down the street in a Bentley race car! Lmao
Carlton Salmon Oct 14, 2012
How about a Supersport GT3 for the road?
Brandon Carr Oct 14, 2012
A road going version would be sick
Theviper007 Oct 14, 2012
All buff and sexy for Bentley now eh? I love it!
Devin Babyn Oct 15, 2012
There's two big black plastic covers beside that
Phillip B Jong Oct 15, 2012
Plastic? Those are intake manifolds lol
Devin Babyn Oct 14, 2012
How 'bout nothing, why do you need to cover it up
Kwesi Desmond Prempeh Oct 14, 2012
What would you recommend Dylan?
Daniel Alexander Soutar Oct 20, 2012
Simply hideous from the front. Sorry...
Serge Pankratov Oct 15, 2012
Yuck! Not my kinda car at all...
Isaac Taylor Oct 15, 2012
I LOVE THIS BENTLEY
Josh Melhorn Oct 14, 2012
The ugliest Bentley is the Arnage! And this car looks really good in person!
Thibault Leroy Oct 14, 2012
Ive never really liked the mulsanne
Zeus Mocha Oct 14, 2012
I like it for some reason
Mustafa Alshekhly Oct 14, 2012
The ugliest bentley ever !
Andrew Hubbard Oct 14, 2012
Always thought these were ugly since day one.
chikenbag Oct 14, 2012
hey, this ain't the car we've been talking about!
Stephen Reed Warren II Oct 14, 2012
This car is for a different buyer. I like the fact they have a super yacht and think the "oldish" look gives it class and character
Zachary Maurer Oct 14, 2012
And then the ugly one...
Ryan Spencer Oct 14, 2012
I hate the design.
John Serely Oct 14, 2012
I've loved the headlights
Nick Schnee Oct 14, 2012
Me neither. It looks so... old-ish.
Brandon Carr Oct 14, 2012
Never liked the headlights
Bobby Junior Oct 16, 2012
6 3/4 litres is traditional. Many British things are like that.
Serge Pankratov Oct 15, 2012
Lmfao.. Y not just put 6.75L??! Damn Brits
Michael Davidson Oct 15, 2012
That's funny, I've never seen anyone use fractions for engine sizes.
