Russians to get early glimpse of Bentley’s Continental GT Speed
MOSCOW, Aug 23 — Bentley is headed to Moscow to unveil the Continental GT Speed, its latest supercar and the carmaker’s most powerful yet at 625hp.
Boasting a top speed of 330km/h thanks to its twin-turbocharged W12 engine, the car gets a 50hp power boost over the regular GT. It can also reach 100km/h in just over four seconds and 160km/h in nine seconds.
Despite the power boost, the carmaker claims that its fuel consumption and carbon emissions have dropped 12 per cent compared with the regular GT.
Although it was initially revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June, the general public will be able to catch a first glimpse of it at the Moscow Motor Show from August 29 to September 9. The car will start shipping in October. — AFP-Relaxnews
