Bentley has given the Continental GT a performance boost and a new Black Edition package that spices up its appearance inside and out.
The company’s engineers managed to squeeze a bit more power out of the Continental GT’s 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine, increasing its ponies from 626 horsepower (635 PS) to 633 horsepower (642 PS) and torque by 15 lb-ft. across the entire rev to 620 lb-ft.
Thanks to the extra power, the ultra-lux, performance-tuned British sports car can now accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 206 mph (332 km/h), making it the fastest production car ever made by Bentley.
Available for both the coupe and convertible body styles of the Continental GT, the new Black Edition package spruces things up with a gloss-black finish on key places on the exterior, including the window openings and lamp bezels, and adds all-black 21-inch five-spoke wheels concealing distinctive brake calipers that can be had in a choice of red or black.
It also features contrasting colors on the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser.
The interior, on the other hand, benefits from many carbon-fiber elements that provide a dark contrast against split-color upholstery and contrast stitching in Porpoise, Cyber Yellow, Beluga, or Pillar Box Red.
The improved, noticeably faster Bentley Continental GT goes on sale in summer 2016.
