Bentley Continental GT sets new Pikes Peak record

A Bentley Continental GT has set a new Time Attack 2 production car record during the 2019 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado. With Rhys Millen in the driver's seat, the Continental GT finished the 20 kilometre hill climb in 10 minutes 18.488 seconds. The new time is over eight seconds faster than the previous record of 10 minutes 26.896 seconds, which was set in 2015 by David Donner in a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S.

Where that car was a hacked-up GTI with engines on the front and rear axles, the 2018 car is an utterly modern statement of battery-powered intent.

To complement the increase in power, Mitsubishi says that it has modified the all-wheel drive system to improve traction and handling.
