Bentley has confirmed previous reports with the announcement that the new Continental GT Speed will make its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012.

Billed as the marque's fastest production model ever, the new performance flagship packs 625 PS (616 bhp / 460 kW) at 6000rpm and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque from its 6.0-liter 48-valve, four-cam, twin turbocharged W12 engine. With power transfered down to the pavement via a newly revised ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the 0-60 mph sprint takes 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.2s) and on to a top speed of 205 mph (329 km/h).

Other highlights includes a lowered, uprated suspension with unique 21-inch Speed wheels, Speed grille and exhaust pipes plus a Mulliner Driving Specification interior.

Order books are open now with deliveries to begin in October 2012.
