Bentley has unveiled its revised Continental GT Speed - the brand's fastest production model yet.

The Speed's twin-turbocharged 6-litre W12 engine produces 633bhp (up 7bhp) and has a top speed of 330kmh.

It is quicker off the mark too with 0-100kmh taking around four seconds - quite a feat for such a large vehicle.

In addition to this model, they have also brought out a Continental GT Speed Black Edition.

This has a high-gloss black finish to exterior elements - even window openings. And there are black 21ins wheels and red, or black, brake calipers. Apparently there has been a fair bit of demand for this sort of thing.

There is no news on prices as yet but a little bit of an increase is anticipated when the car goes on sale in the summer.
