British luxury marque, Bentley Motors, has announced that the all-new, fourth-generation Continental GT Speed will arrive on Tuesday 25th June as the most powerful road car in its 105-year history.

The new Continental GT Speed uses the brand’s Ultra Performance Hybrid V8, an electrified powertrain that delivers 771 horsepower and 1000 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque, combined with 50 miles (80 km) of electric-only range.

To prove its performance credentials, Bentley took the new Continental GT Speed to the Ryfylke Tunnel in Norway, where it claimed an unofficial “underwater speed record”, reaching its top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h) in the longest subsea road tunnel and deepest tunnel of any kind on the planet.





The Continental GT started the rebirth of Bentley Motors in 2002, helping the brand’s annual sales to climb from approximately 1000 cars to over 10,000 within four years of its introduction.

The second generation of the Continental GT arrived with the now discontinued W12 engine in 2010, which was followed by a new 4.0 litre V8 option in 2012. The third generation was launched in 2018 with a new engine, new suspension, new electrical architecture, new technology and new interior and exterior designs.
