New Bentley Continental GT Speed Hits the Road


Bentley’s latest two-door makes its way onto the open road for a quick video promo.

Bentley first revealed its most powerful coupe to date a few weeks ago, and the new Continental GT Speed has received many plaudits since. The two-door coupe is currently on display at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show and the British automaker evidently felt this was the right time to release its first promo video showing the new model on the road. As we previously reported, the Bentley Continental GT Speed is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 with 616 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

With a new eight-speed automatic transmission, Bentley claims the GT Speed can go from 0-60 in four seconds flat and can reach a top speed of 205 mph. The electronics in the new gearbox are said to be capable of performing 180 million calculations per second, a valuable asset when traveling at speed.
