Do you feel the need, the need for Speed (in a Bentley Continental GT Mulliner W12)? Well, now there’s a coupe for you.
Equipped with the Speed’s 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12, the revised Continental GT Mulliner now has 485kW and 900Nm to its name. That’s an 18kW increase over the previous Mulliner W12 variant, although torque remains the same.
All of this funnelled to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The revised Mulliner coupe can now complete the 0-100km/h dash in 3.6 seconds — an improvement of 0.1s — and hit a top speed of 335km/h.
The car rides on 22-inch wheels with self-levelling centre caps that ensure the flying B logo is upright at all times, as well as an active air suspension setup with active dampers.
There’s also a 48V active roll control system to keep the car as flat as possible, rear-wheel steering to make the large coupe feel more nimble, and an electronic limited-slip differential that allows for torque vectoring across the rear axle.
Stopping ability can be improved if you’re willing to stump up for the optional carbon ceramic brakes.
The cabin features diamond in diamond quilting on the seats, doors and rear quarter panels with both contrast and accent stitching. All up the automaker claims there are 400,000 stitches throughout the interior.
There are also Mulliner logos on the seats, black walnut veneer across the dashboard with a silhouette of the car etched on the passenger’s side, and a unique Breitling-branded clock in the centre of the dash.
Bentley says it has taken care to craft new graphics for the digital instrumentation display so the dials “look like real metal”.
As a Mulliner model, buyers of this range-topping coupe can customise their vehicle from a wide selection of paint, leather, wood, metal, and stitching combinations.
