Bentley Motors is thrilled to confirm the launch date for the highly anticipated fourth-generation Continental GT Speed. Mark your calendars for 16:00 BST on Tuesday, 25 June, when the most powerful Bentley ever created will make its grand debut

The new Continental GT Speed represents a monumental leap forward for Bentley. Equipped with the revolutionary Ultra Performance Hybrid powertrain, this model delivers an astonishing 782 PS and 1000 Nm of torque. Alongside its powerful performance, the GT Speed offers an impressive 50-mile (80 km) electric-only range and a WLTP CO2 figure of under 50 g/km. This combination of power and efficiency makes it not only the most powerful Bentley road car in the company’s illustrious 105-year history but also a significant milestone in Bentley’s Beyond100 strategy, aiming to lead sustainable luxury mobility.

Unmatched Performance and Innovation

The new Continental GT Speed boasts a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h), a feat proven with an unofficial “underwater speed record” set in the Ryfylke Tunnel in Norway—the world’s longest and deepest subsea road tunnel. A thrilling film documenting this achievement will be released at the launch.

The fourth-generation Continental GT Speed incorporates the latest advancements in chassis technology, making it the most dynamic Bentley to date. Key features include:

Active all-wheel drive with torque vectoring
Four-wheel steering
Electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD)
48V electric active anti-roll control
Advanced dual-valve dampers
These innovations collectively create the first true “everyday supercar” in the luxury GT segment, delivering unparalleled driving dynamics without compromising on comfort or luxury.

A Legacy of Excellence

Since its original unveiling in 2002, the Continental GT has been pivotal in Bentley’s resurgence, leading to a ten-fold increase in sales and solidifying the brand’s status in the modern era.
