Bentley has officially released the full specs and a video of the Bentley Continental GT Speed. Beautiful car!
The W12 engine has been fitted with an energy recuperation system that optimizes the use of the electrical system and alternator – during deceleration, for instance, energy is stored for use later. It’s a feature that has spread to all members of the GT line along with the eight-speed transmission, and combined with new engine management software, the result is an improvement of up to 12 percent in fuel economy for all but the GTC droptop, which improves by 10 percent. The hardtop GT line now returns a combined 19.5 mpg, the convertible gets a combined 19 mpg even.
