The absolute highlight of the Moscow International Auto Salon 2012 for Bentley was the unveiling of the Speed version of the new Continental GT. The current flagship Bentley is a go-faster version of the W12 Continental, and gets more power and some extra garnish. It is much more desirable than the standard car.
Check out the highlight of the Bentley Continental GT Speed in the video below:
Powered by Bentley’s iconic 6-litre twin-turbo W12 engine, the GT Speed develops 625 PS (616 bhp) at 6000 rev/min – up 50 PS versus the standard Continental GT – with 800 Nm (590 lb.ft) of torque available from 2000 to 5000 rev/min (up 100 Nm) for instantly accessible high performance. Coupled with a new ZF eight-speed close-ratio automatic transmission and state-of-the-art engine management software, the GT Speed dispatches the zero-to-sixty sprint in 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.2s), reaching 100 mph (160 km/h) from a standing start in just 9.0 seconds.
