Bentley has updated the Continental GT Speed for the 2014 model year by infusing even more power in what represents the company's quickest production model ever.
Its heart and soul has remained the W12 6.0-liter twin-turbo engine but the powerful twelve-cylinder motor now develops 626 bhp (467 kW) and 605 lb-ft (819 Nm) whereas the 2013 version delivered 616 bhp (460 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. As a result of the added oomph, the coupe can now do 206 mph (331.5 km/h) while the convertible is able to achieve a top speed of 203 mph (326.7 km/h).
Aside from gaining extra power, the updated Continental GT Speed comes with a lowered chassis and a stiffer suspension, along with minor paint trim updates on the rear diffuser, front splitter and side skirts. A dark tint finish was applied on the 21-inch alloys, headlights and taillights, while the brake calipers now have a red finish. Moreover, Bentley is introducing new color and stitching options inside to spice up the cabin.
