THIS is the New 208mph 2021 Bentley GT Speed! FIRST DRIVE

The brand new Bentley GT Speed turns out to be quite the surprise! Not only is it the luxurious Bentley grand tourer, but a veritable weapon on the tarmac of the Silverstone circuit. While not the location you'd expect for a first drive, it very quickly becomes apparant why Bentley brought the GT Speed here!

When you think of a Bentley Continental GT, you think of a luxury grand tourer, not exactly lightweight thanks to the high quality of materials, and a car you'd cruise in down the motorway for endless miles. With the GT Speed, you might think that will make it slightly more powerful and perhaps a touch more dynamic... wrong! The newest generation of Continental GT to wear the Speed designation turns out to be quite the capable machine around the tarmac of an F1 circuit.

Powered by the 6.0l twin turbo W12 making 650hp and 900Nm, it's capable of the 0-62mph (100km/h) sprint in 3.6s and on to a top speed of 208mph (335km/h) - impressive numbers however you look at it. However what they don't tell you, is that despite being 2,300kg it can still absolutely get a move on around track. For the GT Speed, Bentley have introduced numerous new elements of technology; from an electronic limited slip diff on the rear axle, to rear wheel steering and a new advanced ESC with numerous opportunities to have some fun... which is exactly what I did!

After a quick walkaround in the pit lane, let's get out on track to see what the new Bentley GT Speed is all about, having quickly gone from "Why are we at Silverstone?" to, "Oh, I get it now!".

Thanks for watching, Tim

    Never did I think that a Bentley would be able to do this! The new 2021 GT Speed not only goes 208mph, but thanks to a host of tech introductions, also happens to be quite the track surprise. What do you think of it?!

    Unfortunately this car will always hold its title as a footballer’s car due to it’s predecessor . Very, very good car though and for sure the better choice comparing to the Panamera or A7. Thanks to VW they share the same platform.

    I am not an Alcantara fan and especially not in the Bentley where it looks like cheap cloth to me. Well, it is actually a type of cloth. I would have it on my roof liner and perhaps my A and B pillars but that’s it. Even in McLaren’s, I much prefer full leather interiors which looks far more refined to me. And I definitely wouldn’t have it on my steering wheel as after a year or so it all flattens down and looks like crap. Is it a fad that will go away after a few years when people see that on used cars it looks worn and natty? I guess time will tell.

    The visual upgrades are what does it for me. The little black accents around the head lights really make them look 30 times better and give them some context within the nose of the car. The cutout along the rocker panels with the stripe looks sporty and not out of place. Really like this car.
