It takes the car a mere 4.5 seconds to do the 0-100 km/h sprint, and with reach 160 km/h in 10.2 seconds.

Complementing the Continental GT Speed's high performance is its unique chassis tune that delivers tauter handling and improved agility, with new, wider 9.5J 20-inch wheels and bespoke performance tyres as standard fitment.
