Bentley Continental GT announced

Bentley's fastest mass production model is to go on sale in October.

However, theBentley Continental GT, which has a top speed of 205mph, will make its debut at next week's Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex.

Members of the public will have to wait a few month's longer to get their hands on the vehicle. Its not yet known how much the model will cost, but buyers can always offset some of the cost by shopping around for the best-pricedcar insurance deal available.

The new car, which has been crafted at Bentley's plant in Crewe, is not only quick, it looks the part too.

It can go from zero to 60mph in four seconds, largely thanks to the fact that it is powered by the updated version of the Bentley 6.0-litre W12 engine.

Bentley's chairman and chief executive Wolfgang Durheimer described the new model as having a "harder-edged, sportier character" than the existing Continental GT.
