2021 Bentley Continental GT Speed unveiled
Bentley Motors has unveiled the third-gen Bentley Continental GT with the GT Speed,the most performance-oriented version. The carmaker says this is the most dynamic road car that it has ever built with the new tech it comes packing.
The highlight is the 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12. The motor puts out 659PS, a 24PS increase over the standard GT, and a staggering 900 Nm. The gearbox has been retuned for use here with the eight-speed unit now shifting twice as quickly and more aggressively in Sport mode.
Significant Changes: The rear-wheel steering system on the GT Speed has been made more active to improve agility in combination with the quicker steering ratio. Significant changes have been made to the Bentley Continental GT's chassis . For the first time in a Bentley, there is an electronically limited slip differential (eLSD) in the rear axle. This mechanism improves responses during turn-in and straight-line acceleration. The AWD system is more rear-biased in Sport mode and the three-chamber air suspension and 48V anti-roll system is seen here too. An optional carbon-ceramic braking system saves 33 kgs.
Some Cosmetic alterations separate the GT Speed from the standard Bentley Continental GT. There is a darkened front grille and air dam, more sculpted side sills and Speed badging. Further along, 22-inch Speed wheels are standard with sliver, dark tint or gloss black colour options. There are jewelled fuel and oil filler caps and illuminated Bentley treadplates.
The GT Speed's interior is offered in two-tone leather and Alcantara and with a wide selection of materials and customisation options.
The Bentley Continental GT Speed can do 0 to 100 kmph in 3.6s, 0.1s faster than before, and reach a 335 kmph top speed.
