The Bentley brand has announced the imminent debut of a new modification of the Continental GT coupe. The novelty will become the most dynamic car of the company in the history. The new coupe will debut on March 23 this year.
Bentley has not yet disclosed any technical characteristics of the new product. The Bentley Continental GT Speed model will retain the 6.0-liter W12 engine, which is traditional for this version of the coupe. The previous version of the Continental GT of the same name had a power unit with 642 hp. and 840 Nm of maximum torque (about 10 hp more than a “regular” Continental GT with the same engine) and spent 4.1 seconds to accelerate to the first “hundred”.
The current Bentley Continental GT model is capable of accelerating to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds at a maximum speed of 333 km / h. That is, the new product announced by Bentley should be even more dynamic. At the same time, the Supersports version was presented for this coupe in 2017, which was then also called the fastest in the history of the brand: this car took 3.5 seconds to accelerate to the first “hundred”.
It is planned that the new Bentley Continental GT Speed coupe, in addition to the uprated engine, will receive a number of cosmetic changes: they will affect the structure of the bumpers, exhaust design, and wheel disks. In addition, the automaker has promised to equip the new grand tourer with some “latest advanced technology”.
