Bentley has unveiled the 2015 Continental GT Speed which will be making its way to Geneva in March. The car’s getting more power and torque while also getting some cosmetic enhancements for good measure. The twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine under the hood now delivers 626 horsepower and 607 lb-ft of torque, both of which are up from 616 and 590 in the outgoing model respectively. Top speed will be 206 mph for the coupe while the Convertible will hit 203 mph. All this power’s tamed by Bentley’s ZF eight-speed automatic transmission that helps to take the new GT Speed from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds.
Visually, this is also one of the most sleek Continental GT’s to date with an updated front bumper that features a mesh grille over the intakes and small pair of winglets. You’ll also notice a dark tint has been applied to the light surrounds and wheels, while the brake calipers now come in a bright red finish. Not enough? The 2015 GT Speed also gets a new exclusive paint color option called Candy Red.
Jump into the cabin and you’ll notice a new color split reserved exclusively for the Speed models. Starting with a dark mono-tone interior, you’ll see accent stripes in a contrasting color applied across the doors, rear panels, fascia wings, inner console and gear lever. Matching contrasting stitching is then sewn to all aspects of the cabin.
The 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed and GT Speed Convertible will be making their world debuts at next month’s Geneva Motor Show alongside the rest of the 2015 Bentley lineup.
