321kph in a Bentley GT Speed!

So, in the spirit of George Herbert Leigh Mallory, we do. He never made it to the top of Everest back in 1924, but we do manage to crest 320kph - our unofficial goal - more than once later that day. Why do it more than once? For no other reason than, in a Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible, unlike any other 2,500kg four-seat convertible, you can. We think George would have approved.
