Bentley Continental GT Speed (2013–2018)

The Continental GT Speed Coupé was unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, followed by the 2014 New York International Auto Show (coupe) and the 2014 Beijing International Automotive Show.

Delivery was set to begin in summer of 2014.

Changes to the new Continental GT Speed included increased engine power to 625 PS (460 kW; 616 hp) and 820 N⋅m (605 lb⋅ft) of torque, sports suspension (uprated anti-rolls bars, air springs, dampers and suspension uprights as well as revised stability control) dark tint front upper and lower grills, Speed branded treadplates, unique design 21″ Speed wheels and a chrome ‘Speed’ badge on both front wings. Mulliner Drivers Specification was also included as standard and from the 2015 model year the GT Speed came as standard with a body coloured bodykit including front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser, 21-inch Dark tint Speed design wheels (previously an option), a choice of red or black painted brake calipers and dark tint front & rear lamps. Inside a new unique Speed colour split was made available and a ‘Speed’ badge was installed on the passenger side fascia plate in a similar design to those fitted on the front wings. 2015 model year cars also came with an addition 10PS and 10Nm of torque, both helping to increase top speed and reduce acceleration times.

From the 2016 model year the Speed model gained the range face-lift enhancements of other GT models as well as a new 21″ 5 spoke ‘directional’ alloy wheel design and again more power, this time an increase of 8PS for a total of 642PS. This makes the 2016 model year Speed the most powerful Continental GT yet outside of the flagship Supersports model introduced in 2017 for the final year of GT production for that generation.
