Bentley Continental GT Speed hits the Goodwood hillclimb (video)Sat, 30 Jun 2012
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.
