Bentley has pushed its iconic 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine even further to extract even more power from it and now it produces 635 PS (626bhp / 467 kW) and a record 820 Nm of torque. The British luxury car maker is gearing up for the upcoming Geneva Motor show which kicks off next week and Bentley will unveil its fastest and the most powerful Continental GT ever. The Continental GT as got a power upgrade of 10bhp more than previous version. Also by bettering the top speed by 1mph, the 2014 Continental GT is the fastest Bentley ever. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 331kmph (206mph) and the cabrio version can hit the top speed of 327kmph (203mph)
The exterior of the new Bentley sports quite a few changes including a sharp front splitter, elegant side skirts and a beautifully shaped rear diffuser which are finished to match the exterior paint color for the first time. It also comes with lowered chassis, stiffer suspensions and a dark tint finish has also been applied on the 21 inch alloy wheels. Joining it will be the luxury sedan Flying Spur that will also be offered with a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 apart from the W12 6.0 liter engine. Visually, the black grille will be the differentiating factor between the V8 and W12 powered Flying spurs.
