New for 2013, the Bentley Continental GT Speed is a performance-oriented variant of the standard Continental GT. The most powerful model in the Bentley Continental lineup, the GT Speed is powered by 616 hp and achieves 0-60 in just 4.0 seconds. AWD paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission enables the GT Speed to achieve an EPA estimated 13 mpg city and 20 mpg highway. Features include an infotainment system, navigation system, adaptive cruise control, cordless mobile handset, rearview camera, massaging and ventilating seats, continuous damping control air suspension, and premium grade leather seats. Safety is comprised of anti-lock braking (ABS), stability control, and advanced airbags. The Continental GT Speed is backed by a 3-year/unlimited-mile warranty.Read more Read less
The 12-cylinder Continental GT and Flying Spur models, completely redesigned last year, are carried over, but in addition to those Bentley is introducing a new twin-turbo V8 for the GT. At the other side of the lineup is the all-new GT Speed, which packs an even stronger version of the 12-cylinder engine, a new 8-speed automatic transmission, and a long list of additional 'Mulliner Driving Specification' equipment.
Relaxed yet very strong powertrains; smooth ride yet responsive handling; quiet, tight cabin; hand-crafter interior materials; coupe and sedan body styles available; more fuel-efficient V8 model
The Continental is one of the fastest and most lavish prestige-luxury coupes available. With more comfort and luxury than the Aston Martin DB9 and Maserati GranTurismo yet a more exclusive look and feel than the BMW M6 or Mercedes0Benz CL63 AMG, the Continental GT models are good choices for those who want to stand out, yet be cosseted in the way that few luxury cars allow. While the Continental's form is distinctive in both coupe and sedan forms, this is a car that really shines inside, with excellent front seats, an array of luxury features that's up to snuff with any German technology flagship and the far more exclusive, individualized appointments of a high-prestige coupe--and a seemingly endless list of possible materials like hand-stitched seats, special embroidery, grain-matched real wood veneers, and custom colors. Inside or out, it's unlikely you'll see two exactly the same. For those looking for top-down thrills in a prestige-luxury presentation, the Continental GTC provides all the features, performance and exclusive pedigree of the coupe but with a power-folding, multi-layered soft top that seals out the elements when the sun's not out. Furthermore, the Continental, in in all of its variants, features surprising "normal" drivability characteristics--unlike some supercars or ultra-luxury models that may be cramped, lack visibility, be difficult to drive in traffic and park.
