Meet the ultimate grand tourer with a sporting focus – the Bentley Continental GTC Speed. When you initially put your foot down, you can expect a burst of what feels like unlimited acceleration – a never-ending wave of force capable of propelling you up to 208 mph in a matter of moments (335 km/h).
However, when it comes to this beauty of a car, style is just as important as substance in the GTC Speed. And as a result, the Bentley Continental GTC Speed has a distinctive look – a deeper, more purposeful edge based on the precise use of lightweight, technological materials. This car will amaze you in more ways than one, with an unrivalled blend of luxury and unbelievable performance.
Interior & Exterior Design
The Bentley Continental GTC Speed is unlike any other car of its kind. From the Bentley-branded gloss, carbon fibre body kit with a mirror-matched weave pattern all included in the Styling Specification, whilst ‘Speed’ badging and dark tint exterior accents, as well as tinted front and rear lighting, combine for an unrivalled appearance.
The ‘Speed’ logo is engraved on the tread plates and the dashboard on the inside of the car, whilst the leather and Dinamica seats have a one-of-a-kind colour split and diamond quilting design, with unique ‘Speed’ embroidery. Every aspect, from the graphics in the electronic instrument panel to the sports pedals at your feet, reflects the car’s luxury racing nature.
The Continental GTC Speed offers essentially endless customisation options, with an emphasis on sporting detail and precise finishes.
There is a choice from 16 standard exterior colours, or more than 80 if you include the broader range and Mulliner Paints. Within, the leather and Dinamica upholstery come in 15 primary colours and 11 secondary colours, with a stunning variety of colour splits, stitching styles, and piping choices.
Bentley’s entire selection of hand-finished veneers is also available, including several traditional high-gloss woods, modern open-pore wood treatments that require less lacquer for a matt appearance, and a variety of remarkable technological finishes made from materials such as carbon fibre and engine-turned aluminium.
This is the most powerful production Bentley ever constructed, with genuinely incredible performance for a four-seater car. Its 650 horsepower (659 PS) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) torque can propel you from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds).
Various Driving Modes
The GTC Speed has a choice of driving modes – something for every driver. Comfort mode allows for more leisurely driving, while Sport mode enhances the engine, gearbox, and suspension to maximize the car’s dynamic capabilities. What’s more, is that it even modifies the exhaust to provide a more thrilling sound.
Tighter Cornering & Increased Agility
The Continental GT Speed’s electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD) can actively alter the amount of torque transmitted from the engine to each rear tyre, allowing you to accelerate out of bends and tight corners with even more assurance.
All-wheel steering allows the driver to easily overtake on the highway while reducing body roll even further. It decreases the turning radius of the car at low speeds, allowing for even better manoeuvrability on busy city streets.
