Lot 156 - 2010 Bentley GT Speed
|Sold - £44,044
- Only 21,065 miles from new
- Low ownership
The Bentley Continental GT was the first model introduced by Bentley Motors following its acquisition by the Volkswagen Group in 1998. A Torsen-type permanent four-wheel-drive six-speed transmission was standard equipment, and the Continental GT could accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 197.6mph. A mechanically identical Continental GTC Convertible was made available for 2006, followed by another version of the Coupé: the range-topping GT Speed.
As its name suggests, the GT Speed offered greater power and increased performance; the 6.0-litre W12 engine produced 600bhp and heaps more torque (553lb/ft), while the running gear was comprehensively upgraded with a strengthened gearbox; firmer suspension; revised steering; optional carbon ceramic brakes; and the Mulliner specification interior.
This lovely example is presented in metallic blue with its lavish cross stitched blue leather interior. The first owner ordered many options that were available from the factory and so is probably one of the best on the market today. It is a low ownership example with only having covered a mere 21,064 miles from new with the last service carried out at 21,000 miles. Most of its servicing has been carried out by Bentley Cheshire, Glasgow and Jack Barclay. It comes with a spare key, Bentley manual and its cherished private registration number. This Bentley has been beautifully looked after with little to no marks to its paintwork or interior. A truly wonderful motor car which exudes opulence, elegantly, with performance to match - what a great combination for a fraction of the price of a new one. Treat yourself this Summer!
