  British high-end luxury car maker Bentley Motors have introduced its fastest production model ever, the Continental GT Speed Coupe.

  With a top speed of 329 km/hr the GT speed is tailor-made for the enthusiasts who want speed, performance, agile handling along with ultra luxury.

The Continental GT Speed is decked with an all new up-rated version of the unique Bentley 6-liter 48-valve twin turbocharged W12 engine, developing a whooping 625 PS at 6000 Rpm and 800 Nm of torque to deliver thunderous performance. The GT Speed has a unique chassis tune that includes a uprated steering and suspension systems with lower ride height and 21-inch Speed wheels which are fitted with 275 35 R21 Pirelli P Zero ultra-high performance tyres.

Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley’s chairman, stated that for nearly a decade the Bentley Continental GT has defined high end luxury, performance, grand touring and the unique W12 engine has been so successful that Bentley is now the world’s largest producer of 12-cylinder engines. And the new GT Speed with its harder-edged, sportier character reaffirms this pinnacle positioning and continues to broaden the worldwide appeal of the Continental coupe.

The GT Speed will make its international debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 28th June until 1st July. Orders for the new GT Speed are being taken now, with deliveries to commence in October 2012.
