Bentley Cambridge customers were among the very first people to drive the new Bentley Continental GT Speed as the dealership welcomed its eagerly-awaited demonstrator cars.
The landmark vehicle, Bentley’s fastest ever production car, debuted at the dealership last month to the delight and appreciation of discerning local drivers.
The arrival of the GT Speed was heralded over three days in conjunction with F Vindis & Sons, official authorised repairer for Bentley Motors in Norwich, who introduced the car on October 4 with an evening launch event of champagne and canapés.
Then on October 5 and 6 Bentley Cambridge held a Ride & Drive event, with back to back test drives. Le Mans 24 hour race winner Guy Smith was on hand to take customers on the drive of their lives.
Steve Millward, General Manager at Bentley Cambridge, said: “All of the launch events went very, very well, and it was none stop.
“The feedback was fantastic, with customers reporting that this model really has the edge. The 630bhp gives the new GT Speed a real roar; it sounds beautiful.”
Combining supreme luxury with supercar performance, the Speed boasts the trademark GT styling, with a lower, sportier stance, while signature Speed design cues signal this is something very special.
An unmistakably Bentley engine delivers a top speed of 205mph while enhanced efficiency yields an eight per cent improvement in fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
The luxurious handcrafted cabin of the Speed offers Bentley’s characteristic levels of refinement and comfort, craftsmanship and quality, and the new chassis provides a sportier and more engaging driving experience.
Andrew added: “We had customers travelling from far and wide for a test drive, and as a result had plenty of interest on the day to buy.”
