Bentley GT Le Mans v Flying Spur Speed: DRAG RACE

It’s time for a Bentley vs Bentley showdown!

We’ve got our hands on the super-rare, limited edition Bentley Continental GT Speed Le Mans, and it’s going head-to-head against the Flying Spur Speed!

So how different are these two cars? Well starting with the Flying Spur, it’s powered by a 6-litre twin-turbo W12 engine that puts down 635hp and 900Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, and it tips the scales at 2,437kg. If you want to pick one up, it’ll cost around £245,000.

But that’s nothing compared to the Le Mans Edition, which costs £330,000! Under the bonnet you’ll find the same 6-litre twin-turbo W12, although power output has been increased to 659hp and 900Nm. It also has an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox, although there are a couple of unique features to be found on the inside.

The car has been built to celebrate 100 years of the Le Mans 24 Hour race, so it includes some plaques to celebrate Bentley’s six wins, as well as an engine valve from the 2003 winning car! It’s also limited to just 48 units.

The question is, does it really warrant the £330k price tag?! And will it beat the Flying Spur Speed over the quarter-mile? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
