With increases in power, torque and fuel efficiency; the Continental GT’s engine is renowned as one of the most technologically advanced of its kind. Designed in a unique ‘W’ configuration, it is the most compact 12-cylinder engine in the world.
The Continental GT is even faster than its predecessor. With its power output raised to an immense 575PS (567bhp/423kW) and 700Nm (516lb ft) of torque. In tandem with a new 8-speed Quickshift transmission, gear change times are reduced by 50 per cent, it will launch from standstill to 60mph in just 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 197mph (318km/h).
