Bentley Continental GT Speed

The good folks at Autoblog tested out the new Bentley Continental GT Speed.

I’m travelling at the approximate speed of privilege. With the aluminum accelerator of the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed buried to its neck in the high-pile carpet of the floorboard, the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 underhood is at full boast. The 616 furious British horses pumping under that long, proud prow set the German countryside to frappĂ© with breathless ease, and with the sprawling sheetmetal of the coupe settled comfortably onto its haunches in eager anticipation of ever more thrust, it’s clear this machine is content to consume endless kilometers of Autobahn in wide-mouthed gulps. There’s an open lane of unrestricted tarmac unraveling before me, and I’m keen to oblige every thread of temptation singing in my chest. The speedometer has just clicked past 165 mph.
