The Bentley Continental GT Speed was the most powerful production Bentley ever and the first to top 200mph (322km/ h)in 2017. A potent addition to the company's highly successful Continental series, the GT Speed extends the appeal of the Continental GT coupe to driving enthusiasts who place a high value on outright performance and agile handling.
The Speed designation is not new to Bentley. If we forget the first Continental GT Speed discovered in 2007, we have to go back to... 1923 to see the suffix appear! Speed is a reference to the Bentley Boys and their Speed 6s, the power monsters that contributed to the success of the” winged B” in racing. The spirit of the Continental GT Speed remains the same: to bet on the power to offer an extra bestiality to the very bourgeois Continental.
The Continental GT is not only a coupe for senators, it can also be a fast and furious beast. This 610 hp Speed version is a case in point.
It was Bentley's fastest ever production car.
With a speed of 325 km/ h, the Continental GT Speed showed no signs of slowing down in its development programme. After Volkswagen took over Bentley, it began to improve the British marque and return it to its racing roots and former glory. The entire range consisted of large, luxurious, fast roadsters and limousines. It is worth mentioning that they also provided special vehicle for Buckingham Palace.
From the outside, the Continental GT Speed features a wider air intake on the apron and a larger grille to increase airflow. Two air intakes were required to cool the brakes. The car was equipped with the largest disc brakes ever fitted to a production car. On the sides, the large 20-inch light alloy wheels were fitted with bespoke Pirelli P-Zero tyres.
Inside, the Bentley GT Speed was fitted with carbon fiber and piano black trim or, for a more refined feel, wood. Although it was the fastest Bentley ever produced, the interior was as luxurious as a GT can be. The gear selector was mounted on the central console, but a pair of paddle shifters were mounted on the steering column.
Technically, the car was equipped with the same 6. 0 litre W12 engine. It was powered by a pair of turbochargers. The connecting rods, pistons and anodized compression ring grooves were largely improved. A lighter timing chain was also fitted. The result is a 610 hp engine mated to an 6-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.
The all-wheel drive Bentley Continental GT changed the face of the luxury coupe market and attracted a wider audience to the Bentley marque. It also represented the first step in Bentley's renaissance, positioning the company at the pinnacle of both technology and consumer aspiration. Since its launch, demand for a sportier version of the Continental GT was met by the successful introduction of the 2005 GT Mulliner Driving Specification and the limited edition GT Diamond Series in 2006, to celebrate 60 years of Bentley at Crewe. With the launch of the Bentley Continental GT Speed, customers enjoy even greater choice. Bentley Chairman and Chief Executive Dr Franz Josef-Paefgen welcomes the expansion of the Continental GT model offering: "The Continental GT is a highly successful, modern-day Bentley icon. The new Bentley Continental GT Speed, with its harder-edged character and sportier driving experience, builds on this success."

Delivered new in December 2007 from Bentley Paris, our Continental GT Speed has only had three owners, the last of whom was 10 years ago. Showing 50600km this car has always been scrupulously maintained by the Bentley network as its logbook attests. The GT Speed extends the appeal of the Continental GT coupe to driving enthusiasts who value performance, comfort and handling.
