Bentley is now offering the 8-speed automatic transmission from the Bentley Continental GT Speed also for the Bentley Continental GT and the Bentley Continental GTC.
The new gearbox cuts the 0-60mph time of the 567bhp W12-equipped GT by 0.1sec to 4.3sec, and the Continental GTC by 0.3sec to 4.4sec. The 0-100mph time for the Continental GT dips under 10.0sec at 9.8sec, and the GTC takes 10.3sec.
The gearbox has also improved the economy of both cars. Fuel consumption of the GT improves from 17.1mpg to 19.5mpg, and CO2 emissions have been cut from 384g/km to 338g/km.
