This means around 15 additional horses and 50 Nm of torque over the standard engine. Together with the W12 engine, the new Continental GTC comes with a new QuickShift transmission sending the power to the four-wheel drive system.

With such resources under the hood, the British supercar is able to hit the 100 km/h mark in 4,8 seconds and achieve a top speed of 314 km/h.
