Dealers Open Order Books for New 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition


CREWE, England Bentley dealers are taking orders now for the revised 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed and the new GT Speed Black Edition coupe.

Customer deliveries will begin this summer.

Pricing will be available closer to the cars' showroom debut, a Bentley spokesman told Edmunds.

The Continental GT Speed Black Edition is available in coupe and convertible versions.

Details include high gloss black exterior trim, all-black 21-inch wheels with red or black brake calipers, and exterior mirrors that can be ordered in striking colors, including new Cyber Yellow.

The cabin features carbon-fiber trim and bold leather accents in several colors, including Pillar Box Red and Cyber Yellow.

The Black Edition was created to "meet demand from customers for a model in the Continental line that offers both increased sporting capabilities and instantly recognizable styling cues," Bentley said in a statement.

The GT Speed is the fastest production Bentley.

The car's 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine gets a modest bump to 633 horsepower for the new model year.

The 0-60 mph time is pegged at 3.9 seconds, Bentley said.

Key competitors to the GT Speed include the Aston Martin DB9 GT, Audi R8 and Maserati GranTurismo.

Edmunds says: It's time to get the conversation going with your Bentley dealer if you want to get in line for one of these.
