New Continental GT Convertible
There’s style. There’s elegance. And then there’s the new Continental GT Convertible.
Built by hand at the Bentley factory in Crewe, the new Continental GT Convertible delivers an incredible driving experience, whether you have the roof up or down. And there is only one way to truly appreciate its craftsmanship, design and performance: experience the car for yourself.
The new Continental GT Convertible features sharp new styling and a longer wheelbase than that of its predecessor. As well as contributing to the car’s sleek appearance, this has allowed the engineers to move the engine above the front axle, improving weight distribution and therefore the handling of the car.
Shorter overhangs and low, wide proportions give the car extraordinary road presence, while a wealth of handcrafted exterior details ensure it catches the eye. From the LED matrix headlamps inspired by cut crystal glasses, to the ruby-red LED tail lamps, the new Continental GT Convertible looks stunning from every angle.
Inside the car, a ring of wood sweeps from the fascia into the doors, wrapping around the driver and front passenger, while lending the cabin a sense of width and space. This is also available in High Gloss Carbon Fibre.
The interior reflects the exterior design throughout, for seamless style when you drop the roof. There is a choice of seven different finishes for the fabric hood – you can even commission yours in the eye-catching new Tweed finish. A further eight choices are available for the interior roof linings – the innermost layer in a roof that’s so well insulated, you could be forgiven for forgetting you’re in a convertible when it’s closed.
When the roof is folded away, it sits very low against the car’s body, thanks to a cleverly designed new closing mechanism. The result is a truly sleek appearance. When you drive this car with the top down, you can expect to turn heads.
The new Continental GT Convertible is powered by Bentley’s latest 6.0 litre W12 engine. An 8-speed dual-clutch transmission delivers smooth, efficient gear changes, whether you’re gliding through town or accelerating on the motorway. From a standing start, it can reach 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and ultimately, a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h). While travelling at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h), you can even open and close the roof if the weather changes.
The new Continental GT Convertible offers a choice of four different drive modes including Comfort, Sport, Bentley and Custom. This means that wherever you need to go and however you want the car to handle, the new Continental GT Convertible will deliver the perfect drive. And with Active All-Wheel Drive to ensure good traction whatever the conditions, you can rely on it all year round.

Insightful convertible technology
To keep you cool in the height of summer, the front seats can be commissioned with integrated cooling functions. For colder days, there is the option of a heated armrest and optional neck warmers for the front seats. The steering wheel includes a heating function as standard, ensuring your hands stay comfortable, whatever the temperature outside.
The new Continental GT Convertible has been designed to connect seamlessly with the rest of your life. Accessed via the central infotainment screen or the steering wheel, its digital features include Apple® CarPlayTM*, real-time traffic flow information and an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot. The My Bentley app, meanwhile, gives you digital access to your car via your phone.
