Review: Bentley Continental GT Speed

It reminds me of the old one…again

When the original Continental GT Speed was unveiled in 2008 it became my favorite Bentley overnight, so expectations were set very high for the latest GT to bear the ‘Speed’ designation. The 2008 car had a power hike from 552bhp to...
