Bentley Continental GT Gets Power Boost, Black Edition
As if we weren’t already impressed with the Bentley Continental GT, the company gives us even more to love. Producing the fastest Bentley ever, the new Continental GT has a top speed of 206 mph and delivers more horsepower and torque. It also comes in a striking Black Edition.
The Continental GT’s 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine can now produce 642 PS—up from 635 PS—and 20 Nm extra torque to bring the total to 840 Nm. The additional torque brings better acceleration performance, thanks to it being applied through the entire rev engine via reconfiguration of the boost control.
As a result, the Bentley Continental GT can now go 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
Bentley is introducing the Continental GT in Black Edition too, which celebrates the sporting character of the brand. It is available in both coupe and convertible body styles. The black exterior color comes in high gloss finish, which includes the window openings and lamp bezels. Its 21-inch five-spoke directional wheels come in black with distinctive brake calipers, which can come in either black or red finishes.
In addition, it has contrasting colors on the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser in four different shades, namely, Hallmark, Beluga, St. James’ Red and Cyber Yellow, to match the exterior styling accents. It also has contrast stitching that gives more character to the diamond quilting of the doors and the Mulliner GT Design seats.
Paul Jones, Product Line Director for Continental GT, said that Bentley decided to come up with the new Continental GT Black Edition to answer customers’ request for a model in the Continental line that would offer increased sporting capabilities and recognizable styling outside.
The new GT Speed and GT Speed Black Edition models are available for order now. Deliveries will begin this summer.
