Ditching the standard edition’s chrome brightwork for glossy black, the Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition gives the sporty tourer a little extra edge. The new Black Edition offers a host of striking color schemes that visually embody the GT Speed’s phenomenal performance. Based on the 2016 model, it gets the same upgraded 6.0L twin-turbo W12 producing 642 hp, good enough to move it from 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed of over 200 mph. 21-inch black wheels match the other accents, as well as the carbon fiber of the interior fascia, center, and roof consoles, while a handful of contrast colors — including an eye-catching Cyber Yellow — can be applied to the front splitters, side skirts, leather accents, and interior stitching.
With its lower ride height, the Black Edition feels even faster – and it looks faster, too. The brightware – which includes headlight and grille surrounds, lower body side strips and door handles – is no longer chrome, but has instead been finished in a brooding, evocative black, with all-black 21″ 5-Spoke Directional Sports wheels to match.
This vibrant look runs seamlessly throughout the cabin – exhilaration and elegance co-existing in one sumptuous space. The sports steering wheel features contrast stitching and is hand-upholstered to match the Mulliner Design Seats and the satin finish Carbon Fibre fascia and console.
