This Bentley just happily drifts on demand

Coming in with 650 hp and a super complicated chassis

Bentley has just introduced the new Continental GT Speed and apart from the copious amount of horsepower you'll find under the bonnet, this 650-hp monster features an extremely complex and technologically advanced chassis.

The GT Speed is the first ever Bentley to be equipped with a rear electronically-controlled limited-slip differential as well as a rear-steering system, which enables the car to drift itself out of a corner. In 'Sport' mode, the front axle only receives 28% of the power and the torque vectoring system re-distributes the torque automatically to each rear wheel, which in turn can steer independently thanks to the car's all-wheel steering system.

The GT Speed is powered by Bentley's twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12, producing 650 hp and a whopping 664 lb-ft of torque. You need a lot of stopping power for that and that's why this Conti GT can actually be equipped with the world's largest car brakes. They're made from carbo-ceramic - with ginormous 10-piston calibers - and they measure 440 mm in diameter.

The W12 propels the GT Speed from standstill to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and the top speed is 208 mph. On sale is TBC, as is price, but I think we're looking at a price tag north of £180,000.

How would you describe the Conti GT Speed in just word?
