The Bentley Continental Speed GT made its North American debut over the weekend at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and now Bentley has a released a video of the car taking laps around a track.

Running the new Continental Speed GT is a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine that makes 616 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the car will run from 0-60 in just four seconds, making it the fastest car to ever come from the British automaker.

The Speed variant gets uprated springs, thicker sway bars and bushings and a ride height that sits 0.4 inches lower than standard models. Handling is further improved thanks to re-tuned electronically-controlled damping and steering systems.
