Bentley Continental GT Speed: Vmax in the Australian Outback

The 16MY Bentley Continental GT Speed has been taken to its top speed of 206 mph (331km/h) by Australian racing legend, john Bowe, on the derestricted Stuart Highway deep in the Northern territory.

The 635 PS (626bhp), 820 Nm W12-powered GT Speed Grand Tourer reached Vmax in just 76 seconds, covering a distance of 9.4km in the process.  At top speed, the 6-litre twin-turbo Grand Tourer was covering a staggering 92 meter (or one football pitch) per second.

The Stuart Highway covers a distance of 2,834 km from Darwin in the Northern Territory to Port Augusta, South Australia – approximately the same distance as London to Istanbul or New York to Denver.  In October 2013 the local government announced a trial period reverting to an open speed limit on the 200-km stretch between Alice Springs and Barrow Creek.

At Vmax the 16MY Bentley Continental GT Speed is circulating 216 liters of coolant through its engine and radiator each second; and using 80% of its engine power just to overcome aerodynamics loads.

A six-time Australian touring car and two-time Bathurst 1,000 champion, john Bowe was the perfect choice of driver for Bentley’s high-speed run in the ‘Red Centre’.  He is also familiar with the Continental as he currently races a GT3 Down Under with Flying B Racing.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.
