With the Geneva motor show 2014 almost there, Bentley would be rolling out two more models; the Flying Spur and the Continental GT Speed in both convertible and coupe form.

While it’s top speed is recorded to be 206 mph (331km/h). This is the fastest speed Bentley has ever produced. On the other hand, the top speed on convertible is recorded to be 203 mph (327km/h)
In the words of Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, “Making its global debut at the Geneva Show, the new Continental GT Speed is the ultimate expression of the modern Bentley grand tourer. This one car effortlessly combines immense, dramatic levels of performance with the exemplary standards of luxury, individuality and refinement our company is renowned for,”
The sale of this car would begin in the summer where the price of the model is expected to be near $240,000.
As compared in terms of luxuriousness, image and price, the Continental GT is unique but it would have competitors like Audi R8 Plus, Aston Martin DB9 and even with McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458 Italia and the new upcoming Lamborghini Huracan.
