Bentley Continental GT Speed 600bhp

The 2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed is announced to be the most powerful production Bentley ever, boasting a maximum speed of 322 km/h. It was designed and developed to extend the appeal of those driving enthusiasts who truly valued the agile handling and outright performance. An increased flow to the more powerful GT Speed is provided by a more upright radiator grille, while a lower air intake distinguishes the exterior style of the new Continental GT and GT Speed models. Its high level of performance shows a 0-100 km/h sprint covered in only 4.3 seconds, proving efortless overtaking capability. As an option, customers are offered fade-resistant carbon ceramic brakes, while the sporting character of the Continental GT Speed is reinforced by larger sports tailpipes and a dark-tinted front grille. Both the GT Speed and the Continental GT deliver reduced CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. With a 0-60 mh sprint time of 4.6 seconds, the Continental GT keeps its high performance features, remaining fast with its maximum speed of 318 km/h, thus attracting a wider audience to the Bentley marque and representing the first step in Bentley`s renaissance. But the launch of the Continental GT Speed will enjoy the customers even more, as they have continuously demanded a sportier version of the Continental GT.
