Bentley Continental GTC and GTC Speed 80-11 Editions

At the 60th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Bentley presented two new limited-edition models called the Continental GTC and GTC Speed 80-11 (80 examples that Bentley will built of each model in 2011). These two limited-edition cars are built exclusively for North America and features FlexFuel technology, which enables the vehicle to run on gasoline, E85 biofuel or any mix of the two without any compromise in performance. As part of its environmental strategy, Bentley has pledged to reduce CO2 by 15% by offering FlexFuel powertrains across its entire vehicle lineup by the end of 2012, and wants to introduce a new powertrain that reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 40%.
The luxurious GTC 80-11 features new 20-inch, 14-spoke alloy diamond wheels, polished with unique black center caps featuring Bentley`s distinctive `B` emblem. The more powerfull GTC Speed 80-11 offers 20-inch wheels from the Continental Supersports and both feature Union Jack badges on the front fenders.
The GTC has a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine with 552 hp (412 kW / 560 PS) and 479 lb-ft (649 Nm) of torque. This permits the convertible to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 314 km/h. The GTC Speed also has a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine, but more powerfull with 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) and 553 lb-ft (749 Nm) of torque. The 0-60 mph time is 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 322 km/h.
In addition, both cars get Piano Black trim and engine-turned aluminum dash with a bright finish in the GTC and a dark finish for the GTC Speed.
