Go Faster: Bentley Continental GT Speed

Continentalgtspeed500

What do you do when your game-changing $170,000 luxury coupe has been overexposed by everyone from Paris Hilton to Cars.com? You make it faster. That’s exactly what Bentley did with its new take on the Continental GT. While the current GT has a still outstanding 552 hp, the Continental GT Speed gets 600 hp from the same engine thanks to some tweaks under the hood. That improves the zero to 60 time to 4.3 seconds from a modest 4.6 in the standard GT.

The Continental GT Speed also rides on a lower, more performance-oriented suspension and retains the “base” car’s all-wheel drive system. There’s also a darkened chrome grille and Speed-specific wheels.

A photo gallery can be found below and if you need to know how much you’ll have to pony up for a new Speed — well, they say if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. Seriously though, no price has been announced yet.
