Bentley To Debut Fastest Ever Production Car in Geneva

By Paul Joseph

British luxury car makers Bentley are to debut the Continental GT Speed, billed as the brand’s fastest ever production car, at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland which kicks off this week.

Boasting a top speed of 206 miles per hour, the GT Speed features enhancements to its styling, power, torque and performance, most notably an improved 626 brake horsepower and 820 Nm of torque developed from its 6.0-litre twin-turbo w12 engine.

The convertible version of the car can reach 203 mph thanks to its revised chassis setup with a lowered and stiffened suspension.

As well as performance improvements, the new model also features a more distinctive design aesthetic, including a sharp front splitter, discrete side skirts and elegant rear diffuser finished to match the car’s exterior.

Furthermore, a dark tint finish has been applied to the car’s 21 inch alloy wheels, headlamps and tail lamps. Whilst the exterior modifications are completed with red-painted brake calipers and a chrome ‘speed’ badge fitted to the front fenders.

The Geneva Motor Show takes place from 6th – 16th March.

Founded by W. O. Bentley in 1919, Bentley Motors has grown to become one of the world’s most iconic luxury car makers.
