The Continental GT Speed


Whatever road you choose in life, do it from a position of unparalleled power and control.

From the moment your hands grasp the new Continental GT Speed’s sport steering wheel, you’re aware you’re taking control of Bentley’s ultimate two-door coupé. The twin-turbo engine produces an awe-inspiring 635 PS and 820 Nm of torque yet, thanks to the variable power assisted steering – which provides increased economy and reduced emissions – the drive remains precise through the most demanding corner.

The only equal of such limitless power is the exquisite refinement to be found in the Speed’s redesigned cabin, this introduces a more dynamic look to the upholstery, with a smaller, tighter diamond pattern in the semi-aniline hides.

If you love to drive far and fast but insist on travelling in absolute luxury, the Continental GT Speed awaits.
With peak power of 635 PS, the Continental GT Speed is the most powerful model in the current two-door Bentley Continental family. A full throttle standing start sees 60 mph flash past in just 4 seconds. Top speed, should you have the opportunity to explore it, is 206 miles an hour.

Yet Bentley’s engineering team has ensured that the GT Speed engine and powertrain is just as fuel-efficient as the Continental GT, with refinements to the engine, transmission and turbocharger making an overall improvement of 13% in fuel economy.


Bentley's W12 is a remarkable engine, both for its performance and its architecture. Best described as two narrow angle V6 engines sharing a common crankshaft, it delivers the refinement and power of a twelve-cylinder engine whilst remaining compact. Fed by twin-turbochargers, the W12 Speed specification which powers the Continental GT Speed offers a full spectrum of performance from whisper-quiet cruise to snarling full-throttle acceleration.


By bringing the Speed models 10mm closer to the ground, Bentley's chassis engineering team laid the foundation for an even sportier driving experience. To do so they changed the springs, dampers, anti roll bars and supension bushes. The result is improved body control under hard cornering, together with greater agility.

Exterior Design

The Continental GT Speed's redesigned front and rear spoiler give fresh expression to the heritage of Bentley grand touring. The matrix grille and air intakes of the Speed are in a dark-tint chrome finish and are matched to equally striking dark-tint front and rear lamps. The dark-tint 21" Speed alloy wheels are unique to this model, and are also available in silver, should you prefer. Large, elliptical exhaust tailpipes feature a rifled interior, while the engine note that emerges from them is deeper and more emphatic.

Interior Design

When you drive a Bentley, leather provides the tactile connection between your hands and the high-performance grand tourer at your command. Smaller diamond upholstery, with a semi-aniline hide option, means the seats are unique to the Speed models and hold you securely under hard cornering. In fact, every soft-touch surface in the cockpit is hand-covered with leather produced using a special, traditional tanning process. Some might consider it excessive to offer a choice of carpet and seat belt colours that is as extensive as Bentley’s range of hides. But such people don’t work at Crewe, home of Bentley Motors.

Here, we understand that perfection resides as much in the details as in the broader brush strokes. Whether you want your seat belts to match the main hide or the secondary hide, whether your carpet overmats have contrast binding or single colour, your Continental GT Speed will be crafted to your specifications. And yours alone.
