Continental GT Speed

With a phenomenal 6.0 litre, twin-turbocharged W12 petrol engine, the Bentley Continental GT Speed delivers truly unrivalled power alongside supreme sporting style.


Meet the ultimate sports-focused grand tourer. The moment you put your foot down for the first time, you can expect a surge of what feels like limitless acceleration – a relentless wave of power that can take you all the way up to 208 mph (335 km/h).

Style matters just as much as substance, however. Which is why the Bentley Continental GT Speed features a unique aesthetic – a darker, more purposeful edge, based on the judicious use of lightweight, technical materials. An unmatched balance of luxury and fearsome performance, this is a car to excite you in more ways than one.

Effortless Power


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).


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

A Bold Statement

The Bentley Continental GT Speed looks like no other car. The Styling Specification adds a Bentley-branded gloss carbon fibre body kit, featuring a mirror-matched weave pattern. ‘Speed’ badging identifies the car, while a dark tint has been applied to many of the exterior details that are usually rendered in chrome. Dark matrix front grilles match the dark tint components in the lamps at the front and the rear, while stunning 22” wheels add to the car’s unrivalled road presence.

Inside, the ‘Speed’ emblem is emblazoned on the treadplates and the dashboard. In addition to the unique ‘Speed’ colour combination, the Colour Specification comes as standard, allowing you to choose from Bentley’s entire range of hide colours and carpet colours, complementing the motorsport-inspired Precision Diamond quilting on the doors and the seats. Dinamica trim and custom ‘Speed’ embroidery complete the picture. In fact, every detail reflects the car’s sporting character, from the graphics in the digital instrument panel down to the sports pedals at your feet.
