Additional Info: The 2nd generation of the Continental was introduced in 2011. It includes a standard V8 with 500bhp (0-60 in 4.6), S models with 513 bhp (0-60 in 4.3) and a GT3-R with 571bhp ((0-60 in 3.6). Also available are W12’s with a standard 566bhp (0-60 in 4.3) and later increased to 581bhp in 2015, a 616bhp Speed (0-60 in 4.0) and later increased to around 630bhp in 2014 and finally the 2017 Supersports above with a 700bhp engine (read more about the Supersports here). GTC also available with the same engines (except GT3-R), but slightly heavier due to being a convertible, so just a 10th or two of a second slower to 60.
