Speed Pebble 1 at Bentley GT Speed Debuts at Pebble Beach Concours

Bentley announced the new Continental GT Speed, revealed in England during the Goodwod Festival of Speed, will make its American debut during the Pebble Beach Concours at Monterey Peninsula, California. But it’s not going to be alone out in the lawn, as they are also bringing along the EXP 9 F luxury SUV concept.

The Speed is a sort of tarted up version of the normal Bentley Continental GT. It has 616 bhp, has a 4.0-second 0-60mph sprint and a 205-mph top speed. Until the SuperSport version comes, the Speed is the performance flagship of Bentley’s range.

The car also features subtle exterior details and interior appointments to be distinguished from normal models to those who know what they are looking at. Most notable are the dark-tinted matrix front grille and lower air intakes, ‘rifled’ finish to the exhaust tailpipes and unique 21-inch alloy wheels.

As for the EXP 9, well, we’ve talked a lot about it. It’s a rather ugly concept that is set to become Bentley’s first-ever SUV sometime in near future, although we are hearing they’re already considering altering the design. Let’s see how the Americans will react to it during the event.

“Pebble Beach and the spectacular scenery of the Monterey Peninsula provide the perfect venue for automotive connoisseurs and enthusiasts from around the world to display and celebrate the very best of motoring,” said Christophe Georges, president & COO of Bentley Motors, Inc. “It also serves as an ideal backdrop for Bentley to showcase not only its latest production model, the Continental GT Speed, but also, with the EXP 9 F SUV concept, to provide a glimpse into Bentley’s future.”
