New Continental GT Convertible
The new Bentley Continental GT Convertible offers the same enhancements as its coupé stable-mate, coupled with the sheer exhilaration of open-top driving. What better reason do you need to live a life more spontaneous?
The prodigious W12 twin-turbo engine brings a new variable displacement system that combines lower emissions with greater output, elevating the power to a stunning 590 PS. You’ll feel the promise of performance the moment you slide your hands around the redesigned steering wheel; your ﬁngers, a touch away from the column-mounted paddle-shift gear selectors.
On the outside, the new model’s iconic grille has changed from gloss black to bright chrome to match its W12-engined stablemates. Inside the cabin, the new steering wheel with paddle-shift gear selectors invites a supremely assured grip, while redesigned and increased storage means all that you need is now even closer to hand.
This is a Bentley that can either soothe or stir the soul.
The Bentley Continental GT Convertible is a sports car that offers supercar levels of performance together with luxurious accommodation for four people. So if you are looking for the enchantment of open-top motoring, there’s no better place to experience it than at the wheel of a Bentley.
Each bodyline, crease and swell of bodywork has a look of millimetre-perfect precision. From the front, the face of the Continental GT Convertible appears hewn from solid metal, with distinctive large inner headlamps flanking the familiar Bentley mesh grille. A sweeping bodyline spears backwards from the front wheel to meet the muscular curve of the rear wheel’s haunch, projecting a wide and confident stance. Superforming, a technique that uses a combination of 450ºC temperature and air pressure, is used to form the Continental GT Convertible’s immaculately tailored lines.
The Continental GT Convertible delivers breathtaking performance. Its twin-turbo W12 engine now produces 590PS (up from 575PS), with maximum torque of 720 Nm available from just 1800 rpm for effortless power at the flex of the driver’s right foot. The figures tell their own story: the Continental GT Convertible accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 196 mph.
The driver of a Bentley grand tourer rightly demands access to a world of information and entertainment on the move. In this respect, Bentley’s Continental GT Convertible meet every expectation. At the heart of the infotainment system is a 30GB hard drive, which offers up to 15GB of storage space for music as well as a massive amount of mapping data.
