Bentley’s new, fourth-generation Continental GT Speed launch date

New Continental GT Speed

Bentley’s new, fourth-generation Continental GT Speed will be launched at 16:00 BST on Tuesday 25 June.

Delivering 782 PS and 1000 Nm of torque, combined with 50 miles (80 km) of electric-only range and a CO2 figure (WLTP) of under 50 g/km, the new Continental GT Speed marks a significant step forwards for Bentley. Not only will it be the most powerful Bentley road car in the company’s 105-year history, its introduction marks an important milestone in Bentley’s Beyond100 journey to be the leader in sustainable luxury mobility with the availability of a plug-in drivetrain across all model ranges. It naturally retains the handcrafted luxury and exceptional materials that are synonymous with all Bentleys.

The latest generation of chassis technology – including active all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, four-wheel steering, an electronic Limited Slip Differential, 48V electric active anti-roll control and  new, advanced dual-valve dampers create the most dynamic Bentley yet and the first ‘everyday supercar’ in the segment. A new design and a new suite of technology complete the latest generation of the car that has come to define the modern Bentley.

To prove its performance credentials, Bentley will also announce on 25 June that the new Continental GT Speed has recently claimed an unofficial “underwater speed record”, reaching its top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h) in the longest subsea road tunnel and deepest tunnel of any kind on the planet – the Ryfylke Tunnel in Norway. A film showcasing the tunnel run will be released at the moment of launch.
