Bentley Continental GT Speed hits the Goodwood hillclimb (video)Sat, 30 Jun 2012 00:00:00 -0700
The public debut of the new Bentley Continental GT speed saw Bentley’s fastest car hit the Goodwood hillclimb.
We’ve just had a reveal of the new Bentley Continental GT Speed – the fastest Bentley in production – and as we predicted Bentley have taken the new GT Speed to Goodwood this weekend.
And there’s not a lot of point, when your new car is the fastest you make, having a pretty, static display. What everyone wants to see is how well a two ton Bentley with 616bhp and 590lb/ft of torque acquits itself on the Goodwood hillclimb. So Bentley obliged.
With Juha Kankkunen at the wheel, and a grateful passenger on board, the GT Speed took to the hillclimb like a duck to water.
Fortunately for us, Bentley managed to bolt a video camera in the GT Speed and overlay the video with a speedo, rev counter and g-force accelerometers to show us just what was going on.
So now you can pretend you did the Goodwood hillclimb in a new Bentley Continental GT Speed.
