A classic W12 6.0 biturbo engine coupled with an all-wheel drive system can give us a sporty driving experience that any driver would love, however let’s not forget that it is Bentley we are talking about; power is not everything, but balance, the balance between highly sporty handling and unmatched luxury with top tier materials paired with a feeling of comfort that only the British brand can offer. The result…the Bentley Continental GT Speed, the most radical car of the winged brand and in our opinion, the quintessential Gran Turismo car.
We all know the excellence of Bentley, handcrafted details, specially handcrafted materials and emblems to please each customer; a wide variety of colors for both the exterior and interior; but this car is different, the GT Speed, a car that produces 650 horsepower, 664 lb-ft of torque that combined is capable of taking us from 0 to 100 km/hr in 3.6 seconds… Yes, it is still a grand tourer. This is what makes this car special, not only the comfort and luxury with which you can drive it to an important meeting on a Monday, but also the unparalleled combination of luxury and sportiness as you have never seen before.
Sadly, power is not everything, Bentley knows it, that’s why this car has cutting-edge technology, wrapped in the brand’s famous craftsmanship; the perfect example is the rotating screen in the center console, it contains the central digital screen that with the push of a button we can turn our console into a veneer with three beautiful analog gauges that are a wonderful nod to driving from other not so distant times, An authentic work of art.
This is not to mention the adaptive suspension and traction, the traffic sign identification system, parking assistance and many more top-of-the-range gadgets that the brand offers both for driving assistance and entertainment.
Definitely the ultimate GT, unique in its class and ready to break paradigms, super luxury cars are not at odds with performance, the Bentley Continental GT Speed is the perfect example of an unparalleled pairing that surely, just like us, will fulfill all automotive enthusiasts around the world.
