New Continental GT V8 Convertible
In the new Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible, open-air grand touring is always exhilarating. You are completely in touch with the road beneath you, and fully connected to the world around you, thanks to a spirited V8 engine, innovative technology, sleek, contemporary design and exquisite attention to detail.
Flowing lines and exquisite style
This Bentley V8 convertible is designed to be equally stylish with the roof open or closed. When the roof is up, it merges seamlessly with the streamlined body to form a stylish silhouette. As the roof lowers, it is stowed compactly to allow a single beautiful design line to sweep around the rear seats in one fluid movement.
Inside, you are cocooned in refined comfort whether the roof is up or down. A single hide colour of your choice is used throughout the cabin to create an elegant space around you, with contemporary Crown Cut Walnut veneers as standard completing the interior in style. Additional hide colours and colour splits are also available, as well as an extended range of veneers, or new High Gloss Carbon Fibre. Your veneer can be made even more stunning by adding a sleek Chrome Pinstripe (not available for Carbon Fibre).
There is a pleasing connection between exterior and interior design, with styling cues inside the car inspired by features such as the exterior haunch line. Each of the hide colours looks spectacular whether bathed in daylight or enclosed under the stylish roof, with the Bentley Rotating Display adding the perfect finishing touch.
An engaging and dynamic drive
Astonishing powers of acceleration can take you from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) and on to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)**. You won’t just feel the power of this exceptionally responsive car as you accelerate, you’ll hear it too, with the gratifying burble of the Bentley V8 engine particularly rewarding when the roof is down.
Four Bentley driving modes allow you to adjust chassis and drivetrain settings to suit the road beneath you. Comfort mode offers an especially refined ride, Bentley mode perfectly balances performance and refinement, Custom mode allows you to set your own preferences and Sport mode unleashes the full capabilities of the V8 engine, maximising responsiveness and accentuating the engine sound.
The technology of grand touring
A wealth of innovative features enhance every journey. The roof mechanism can open or close at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h). Ventilated seats make summer driving extra pleasurable, while a heated armrest, heated steering wheel and neck warmers are perfect on cooler days. When you close the four-layer roof, it has been engineered to keep you as insulated as a Bentley GT coupé.
A range of intelligent driver technology contributes to the exuberant performance. Active All-Wheel Drive gives you total confidence on any road, while eight-speed dual-clutch transmission provides supremely quick gear changes. Adaptive cruise control uses long-range radar to maintain your distance from the car in front, and a suite of driver assistance systems make even the longest journey effortless.
