2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition -Gaining more muscle and additional presence, the 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed arrives in showrooms here this summer together with a brand-new Black Edition. Offered in Coupe or Convertible body designs, Paul Jones, Product Line Director for Continental GT, notes this even more unique model was produced “to satisfy demand from clients for a model in the Continental line that provides both increased sporting capabilities and immediately recognizable styling cues.”
Like the GT Speed, the Black Edition gain from an updated variation of the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine that resides underhood. Horsepower increases from 626 to 633 while peak torque pops to 620 lb-ft– a gain of 15 twist systems– which is on hand in complete step from 2,000-5,000 rpm. As a result, Bentley says the 0-60 miles per hour time for all variations of the 2017 GT Speed drops by 0.3 seconds to just 3.9 ticks and the 206 mph leading end makes it the firm’s fastest production model to date.

Exterior and Interior
As the name recommends, the 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition functions high-gloss black outside highlights instead of the normal chrome trim. On the side, the window trim, the lower chrome strip, and the mirror caps are likewise completed in black. Generally finished in the exact same color as the body, these elements can now be had in Trademark (metal gray), Beluga (black), St. James’ Red, and Cyber Yellow, which is a brand brand-new color.
The mix of dark tones and bright highlights continues inside the cabin with the seats and center console bordered by contrasting leather in Cetacean (gray), Beluga, Pillar Box Red or the brand-new Cyber Yellow. Given, the yellow may be a bit too fancy for some, however, its a rare function in this sector.
Every model is offered with Mulliner GT Design seats with diamond quilting and Speed lettering on the headrests and Both the seats and the door panels, which also include diamond quilting, are highlighted by contrast stitching. For an additional dash of sportiness, the dashboard, center stack, center console, and roof console function carbon-fiber rather of the more standard wood inserts.
Under the hood, the Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition features the same exact same, 6.0-liter W-12 as the regular Routine Speed. The most significant benefit from this is a 3.9-second sprint to 60 miles per hour, which is a tenth-second quicker than the previous GT Speed.
The 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition retails from $253,235 in the United States. For that sticker label, you’ll get the coupe variation before options. If you desire the advantages of a drop-top, you’ll need to pay $277,235 for the Convertible model.
