PERFORMANCE

EFFORTLESS POWER

THRILLING ACCELERATION

This is the most powerful production Bentley ever built, delivering truly astounding performance for a four-seater car. Capable of producing 650 bhp (659 PS) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, it can propel you from a standing start to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds).

A CHOICE OF DRVING MODES

Driving modes include Comfort for relaxed cruising and an enhanced Sports mode, which optimises the engine, transmission and suspension to boost dynamic ability. It even adjusts the W12 sports exhaust to deliver a more thrilling roar when you put your foot down.

IMPROVED TRACTION

Power is delivered predominantly to the rear wheels by default, but the Active All-Wheel Drive system constantly monitors traction levels. The moment it detects changes beneath the wheels, it redistributes power between the two axles accordingly, for maximum performance whilst maintaining a safe grip on the road.

TIGHTER CORNERING

With an electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD), the Continental GT Speed can proactively vary the amount of torque sent from the engine to each rear wheel, allowing you to accelerate out of corners with even more confidence.

ENHANCED CABIN STABILITY

Bentley Dynamic Ride is a 48-volt electronic anti-roll system that controls body roll according to the driving situation, keeping the car stable when cornering at speed, while minimising bumps and vibrations in more relaxed cruising situations.

INCREASED AGILITY

All-wheel steering enables you to overtake effortlessly on the highway while minimising body roll even further. At low speeds, it reduces the car’s turning circle, providing even better manoeuvrability on city streets.

DESIGN

A BOLD STATEMENT

The Bentley Continental GT Speed stands out with its distinctive appearance. The Styling Specification incorporates a Bentley-branded gloss carbon fiber body kit with a mirror-matched weave pattern, while 'Speed' badging and dark tints on exterior details add to the car's allure. The dark matrix front grilles and 22” wheels further enhance its commanding presence on the road.

Inside, the 'Speed' emblem is featured on the treadplates and dashboard, accompanied by a unique colour combination and the standard Colour Specification, offering a wide range of hide and carpet colours from Bentley. The motorsport-inspired Precision Diamond quilting, Dinamica trim, and custom 'Speed' embroidery contribute to the sporty aesthetic, with every detail reflecting the car's athletic spirit, right down to the graphics in the digital instrument panel and the sports pedals.

TECHNOLOGY

HARD-WIRED FOR EXCITEMENT

PERFORMANCE

THE ENGINE THAT TRANSFORMED BENTLEY

The Continental GT Speed Edition 12 signifies the conclusion of a remarkable chapter in automotive history. The engine it commemorates made its debut in the pioneering first-generation Continental GT, introduced in 2003.

This 12-cylinder engine stands as the most successful in history, playing a distinctive role in propelling Bentley to its current standing, all while upholding founder W.O. Bentley's conviction that the path to crafting superior, swifter automobiles lay in the creation of more potent engines. Presently, Bentley stands as the sole automotive manufacturer producing engines of this calibre.

The Continental GT Speed Edition 12 serves as a tribute to an exceptionally remarkable engine, capable of generating 650 bhp and 900 Nm of torque. Enabling a breathtaking 0 to 60 mph acceleration in just 3.5 seconds.

Engage the throttle aggressively, and the entire bank of cylinders swiftly reactivates in a mere fraction of a second.
