The Bentley Continental GT Pace is the swiftest creation Bentley ever created, with a leading velocity of 205 mph. How quickly was the 2nd-speediest Bentley at any time made? The 2009 Continental Supersports went 204. The 2007 Continental GT Pace went 202. So we're splitting hairs to some degree but the hairs are all on extremely quick heads. Granted, you're not likely to at any time uncover a area where you could truly go that fast, but it's good to know you could and to be ready to toss out the 205 figure and the phrase "swiftest ever" when you're speaking about your automobile.
The very first Bentley Pace appeared in 1923 as the Bentley 3.-liter "Pace Product." That one particular utilized twin SU carburetors and higher compression on its 4-cylinder engine to attain its functionality objectives. Ninety several years later on, the 2013 Velocity employs alterations to the Bosch ME17 motor administration system to wring 49 more horsepower out of the twin-turbo W12, escalating boost .3 bar from 1.65 in the normal W12 to 1.95 in the Velocity. Hence, horsepower goes from 567 to 616. Torque peaks at 590 lb ft on a broad plateau from 2000 to 5000 rpm. To make the most out of all that energy Bentley stiffened the springs, bars and bushings and set it down on 275/35ZR21 Pirelli PZeros. There are even optional carbon ceramic disc brakes to change the standard iron discs.
Other distinctions distinguish it from the GT, like ten-spoke 21-inch wheels, dark trim in the grille, quilted leather-based seats and "Speed" script on the door sills.
