For 2015, the GT Speed gets upgraded to 626 hp and 206 mph.
To ensure it gets some attention at the Geneva Motor Show next week, Bentley has updated the Continental GT Speed for the 2015 MY, declaring it the fastest production car ever made by the company. Two years after dialing up the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 from 567 to 616 hp, Bentley has turned up the heat to 626 hp and 607 lb-ft of torque, giving it a top speed of 206 mph. That’s a full one mph more than the old model. Impressive.
The GT Speed Convertible also has a new top speed of 203 mph, and both models come with a lowered chassis, stiffened suspension, new painted carbon-fiber front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser, and dark tinted 21-inch alloys to match the tinted head- and taillights. Other touches include red brake calipers, chrome “Speed” badges, and a new Candy Red paint option. Inside, the GT Speed comes with new stitching and color options, while Bentley has introduced seven new option package each with its own set of specs ranging from a Naim sound system, deep-pile floor mats and neck warmers to diamond-quilted sears, “Jewel” oil and fuel-filled caps, carbon-ceramic brakes and carbon-fiber exterior add-ons.
