Racecar performance combined with elegant luxury, this 2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed for sale is the best of both worlds. This model continues Bentley’s storied “Speed” bloodline, which dates back to the 1920s and up to the release of the acclaimed 2007 Continental GT Speed.
Powering the Continental GT Speed is Bentley’s monstrous twin-turbocharged 6.0L W12 engine. This tuned engine is capable of delivering 650 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 24 horsepower over the standard model. Connected to the engine is a sharpened eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The updated transmission shows a 100% improvement over the standard GT’s transmission regarding shifting speed. Bentley states that a third to fourth shift now can take as little as 150 ms compared to the 300 ms it used to take.
Altogether, this grand tourer will be able to hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. If you find a road long enough, the Speed will top out at 208 mph.
But straight-line performance is not the only improvement found in the Speed. This Continental GT for sale comes with plenty of new handling features to tame the engine’s raw power. For the first time, the Continental coupe received rear-wheel steering, allowing for even tighter cornering. A new electric torque-vectoring differential enables the GT to Speed to use its all-wheel-drive system to deliver the proper amount of power to the wheels.
Combined with air springs and adaptive dampers, the Continental GT Speed can provide as plush or stiff a ride as you want.
