New 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible: What’s Under the Hood
The 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible offers up a W-12, twin-turbo motor that produces an exceptional 616 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The Bentley, whose weight is measured in multiple tons, needs every last pony to reach its 202-mph top speed, but the idea of traveling at that velocity with the wind in your hair is a scary - and appealing - one to performance-hungry billionaires. The Continental GT Speed Convertible won't take long to reach terminal velocity either, as more pedestrians marks like the sprint to 60-mph are dispatched in just 4.1 seconds. All-wheel drive is standard with the GT Speed Convertible, and a eight-speed automatic transmission is charged with handling the 12-cylinder engine's prodigious output.
