2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Priced at $240,300

Black Edition models start at $253,235

Bentley has announced pricing for its 2017 Continental GT Speed lineup, and as you can imagine, 633 hp doesn't come cheap. The GT Speed starts at $240,300 for the base model, while Black Edition versions go for $253,235.

The 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible is priced at $264,300 or $277,235 in Black Edition trim. All prices listed do not include destination, since Bentley has not yet finalized those fees.

The GT Speed comes packed with a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine making 633 hp and 619 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are up from 626 hp and 605 lb-ft on the previous version. For 2017, the Continental GT Speed keeps the eight-speed automatic transmission from last year.

Bentley says the GT Speed reaches a top speed of 206 mph and can hit 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The GT Speed is still Bentley's fastest production car thanks to its top speed, although the Continental GT3-R is quicker with a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds according to Bentley's estimates.

Bentley showed off its GT Speed lineup at an event in New York this week, and these are some of the first live photos of the car we've seen. The automaker announced changes to the GT lineup last month.

Bentley dealers in the U.S. are now taking orders for the Continental GT Speed. Deliveries begin this summer.
