Outside, to go with the brand new Bentley family front bumper, the Speed incorporates a bespoke diffuser in addition to rear spoiler, the latter popping up through above the bootlid when things get sufficiently blurry.This particular the Speed remains inordinately Great at doing thanks to the repeat deployment of the mammoth 6.0-litre W12 engine, which continues to make the GT’s expansive engine bay look like Saddam’s spider hole. the item retains the same 626bhp introduced at its last refresh, a bewildering output marshalled by the eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox in addition to responsible for producing the style a confirmed 200mph-plus Bentley.Its status as the quickest GT means its maker has opted not to include the latest cylinder deactivation tech which makes the ‘standard’ W12 run as a slightly leaner six-pot in less demanding moments.
