Bentley ready to showcase the second generation 2013 Continental GT Speed
|   Wednesday, January 09, 2013
The second generation Bentley Continental GT Speed is all set to be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show 2013 and this is stated to be the fastest Bentley ever produced. This is a statement that Bentley makes prior to every major Continental launch and the GT Speed can actually hit a maximum of 205 MPH, which is greater than that of the Super Sport as well. The vehicle is powered by the top of the line W12 engine and will be driven on British roads for the first time.


The vehicle is priced at £151,000 and this just £15,000 over the first generation GT Speed. The engine has been upgraded successfully and the overall performance of this vehicle has been increased. Power and torque generation has been increased and the road presence of this vehicle is greater than that of its predecessor.

The fuel consumption and overall weight are the only things that have not increased. Even the CO2 emission figures are at par with those of the GT Speed and the 6.0 liter twin turbo W12 engine produces an enhanced 49 BHP and 74 ft lbs of torque over the first generation GT Speed. Bentley has installed the Mulliner Driving Specification as standard on this vehicle and this gives the vehicle more precision than its predecessor.

The suspension has been lowered by 10 mm and the alloy wheels are standard 21 inches. The ground clearance is huge and the interior has been crafted to perfection. The dark chrome alloys, the chrome front grille and the chrome details make the vehicle stand out in a crowd and the GT Speed is surely the best looking vehicle from Bentley till date.

The exterior has been gently tweaked and the customers do not have anything to complain about in this field. The radiator grille and air intake have been painted black and this gives the vehicle a mean new edge. With a total of 616 BHP productions, the W12 engine really fires up at 1700 RPM. There is a huge power to weight advantage on the GT Speed and the performance of this vehicle is now parallel to that of the Mk1 engine on the Super Sport.

The engine is mated to a standard ZF eight speed transmission system and the vehicle takes close to 4.2 seconds to reach the 60 MPH mark. Whenever the pedal is floored, a rush flows through the entire body of the driver and this vehicle is the perfect combination of killer looks and performance.

Bentley has installed an all wheel drive system on this vehicle and this increases the ride stability of this vehicle. The second generation GT Speed is one of the meanest and deadliest vehicles from Bentley till date and is truly a beast in all senses of the term. Traction is high and the vehicle performs equally well on both dry and wet surfaces. The vehicle is total value for money and customer's reactions need to be gauged once the vehicle is unveiled this month.
