|   Saturday, October 13, 2012
The fastest ever production Bentley is here and the vehicle are powered by a super powerful turbo charged W12 engine from Bentley. The Bentley Continental GT Speed is finally here and this time the vehicle is here to stay.

The current flag ship model of Bentley, the Continental GT Speed is now connected to a high performance ZF transmission. The vehicle produces 567 BHP and features an optional V8 power train option as and when required.

The vehicle has a maximum torque generation of 13,000 RPM and peak torque is available across 2,000 – 6,000 RPM.
The car is blazingly fast and features a current top speed of 205 MPH. This is in sync with the other super cars and the Continental GT Speed is one of the best vehicles to be showcased at the Paris International Motor Show 2012.

The Speed features a four wheel drive technology and the front / rear bias of 60 / 40 is the best on any Bentley in production. The ride height has been dropped by 10 mm and the vehicle is more comfortable and safe in terms of drive ability. The lowered ride height features in better grip on the road and better overall handling and the aerodynamics has a huge role to play in acquiring the vehicle's top speed and acceleration timing.

The different drive train options add to the vehicle's perfect driving condition and the vehicle reaches its speed of 60 mph in close to 4.2 seconds. 0 – 100 mph is blazingly fast as well in 9.0 seconds and these performance figures are an achievement in themselves. The figures on paper are quite impressive and the vehicle is equally impressive on track.

The advanced transmission and suspension make the vehicle easy to handle and control and despite the high torque generation, the vehicle does not feature any subsequent wheel spin. Turbo lag is kept to a minimum with the help of the engineering marvel of this vehicle and this is the most powerful GT car till date.

The under steer and nose dive of the vehicle is a characteristic feature of the extreme performing ability of the GT Speed is one of the best track racing vehicles designed. Bentley is looking forward to creating a track version of the GT Speed and this vehicle will be the best vehicle from Bentley till date.

Bentley was always into performance racing and the GT Speed is no exception. Even though the GT Speed is a performance oriented vehicle, the interior of the vehicle is no less than a luxury cruiser. Bentley is known for its finishing work, luxury and comfort and the GT Speed retains these properties of Bentley.

The vehicle is suited to easy cruising on the freeways, as well as moving slowly inside the perimeters of the city as well as for the race track. The engine begs to be pushed to its limits and the intimidating growl which greets the driver once the vehicle is turned on, is hard to ignore.
