The 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed stopped by the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance fresh from its appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The GT Speed gets its grunt from a 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 good for 616 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, which will shoot the big coupe to a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).
Only Bentley faithful will be able to discern the model from its eight-cylinder sibling, however. Changes to the coupe's exterior are slight, and include black-field center caps in place of the red found on the standard Continental GT on the massive 21-inch wheels. Likewise, large, oval exhaust outlets stand in for the faux-eight pipes, and a set of W12 badges on the front fenders help differentiate the top-tier model from its underlings.
Bentley plans to begin deliveries beginning this October, and buyers may submit orders right now. Click here to step into the gallery above for a closer look.
