It takes a lot of strength to move the big block of luxuries 5000 pounds forward and to a maximum speed of 200mph. After the resurrection of the Continental GT Speed back in 2007, ever since then they have steadily been improving it with every iteration Bentley has manufactured. Today, it is an epitome of splendid British engineering. Bentley’s this bellwether packs a monstrous W12 with 633 horsepower which was an increase of 31 horsepower from the previous version. This monstrosity has set it apart from its rivals, from the likes of RR Wraith having 624 hp and the Mercedes-AMG S65 Coupe with 621 hp. The interior is filled with all the upscale material like leather, wood, and deeply piled carpeting. 60 mph only takes 3.9 seconds from a standstill with the topmost speed of 206 mph.
Following the footsteps of Benz, Bentley has planned to introduce the Black edition of GT Speed. The Black Edition has all the extra luxury packages like chrome and custom made wheels. It also includes the carbon-fiber trim and more impressive interior than the typical GT Speed.
Specifically, this trim of the Continental has put the Bentley of the top of the luxury sports coupe radar. Many manufacturers have already imitated their sports coupe formula. Also of the GT Speed, Bentley has also released the GT convertible and the Flying Spur sedan with the almost identical spec sheet. You can either go for the less mean 4.0 liter V8 or with the 6.0 liter W12.
