When speed is of course not the new 8-cylinder, but the proven six-liter 12-cylinder biturbo (W-shape) is used. This makes the updated standard 575 hp model. When the performance flagship has been screwed up to an impressive 625 hp. Even more impressive since only the maximum torque of 800 Nm sounds. Although the Continental GT weighs well over two tons, the engine has an easy game: It catapults the four-seat four-wheel drive in 4.2 seconds from zero to 100 kph, the speed is breathtaking 329 km / h For an extra narrow power transmission graduated eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF is responsible, which can be operated by manual interventions.

Among the highlights of the dark-tinted matrix grille to the radiator and include in the lower air intake (front) and exhaust pipes, which have a special ribbing. The body is lowered, however, only true connoisseurs stand out. The situation is different in the mighty 21-inch models in specific speed design. On the way, these are mounted 275er tires that provide the right traction. The black-colored interior, it's sporty and luxurious to. Everything looks after the carbon is also carbon.
