This luxurious coupe combines exclusivity and performance better than anything else in its class. Only the big Mercedes-Benz CL coupe is on par with the Bentley. Although the CL has comparable performance, it can't match the striking Continental GT in sheer style. Powered by a 6.0L W-12 and equipped with AWD, this Bentley is built for long distance journeys in any weather, but with a curb weight over 2.5 tons, this is one heavy coupe. For customers who want even more performance, the Continental GT Speed model extracts more power and torque from the W-12; the result is a 0-60 MPH sprint in only 4.3 seconds, while the top speed rises to 326 km/h (203 MPH).
