The Speed version of the new Bentley Continental GT has been completely stripped of its camouflage and our spy photographers were there to capture this beast on film before its Frankfurt Auto Show debut next month.

The final product for the GT Speed gets a redesigned and more pronounced front bumper, giving it a sportier and more aggressive look. A few interior upgrades have also been installed, including new seats and a new navigation system situated in the updated dash.

The changes we are most interested in seeing are found under the hood. There seems to be some changes in the exhaust system, clearly indicating a greater output. The previous GT Speed had 9% more power and 15% more torque than the base Continental GT. If this same increase applies to the new GT Speed, the W-12 will be pump out around 621 horses and 590 ft/lbs of torque.

Along with the added power, the GT Speed will also benefit from a weight loss program. The Bentley Continental GT already boasts of a 143 lbs weight loss, but the GT Speed will add to that to boost fuel efficiency. The lighter body and the added power could propel the GT Speed to 60mph in the 3.8-3.9 second range.

The 2012 Bentley Continental GT Speed will debut next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show so stay tuned for more details!

They really made a great renovation on its bumper! It look nice and very suitable for its body design.. However, looking on its back portion, it ruins the car’s great appearance.

I think the styling of the car is not that sporty. And it seems that they have made a few modifications on its styling. I guess we just need to wait for its revealing in the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Well, I don’t see any changes with the looks on the car from its GT version. However, the great change with the car is under the hood. The percentage of increased power is totally developed. The weight loss of the car is also a great thing.
