Fun meets function in the form of the new Bentley Continental GT Convertible. Flawlessly engineered and meticulously handcrafted, the convertible roof bolsters Bentley's already impressive inventory, improving on an existing praiseworthy design. And whilst flooding your cabin with sunshine, you'll experience no compromise in performance.
Available as a V8, V8 S and W12, the Bentley GT Convertible has plenty to offer. Drive away the twin-turbo W12 and experience an exhilarating drive as the engine effortlessly produces 590PS and delivers a maximum torque of 720Nm, reaching 60mph in 4.4 seconds. The smaller V8 engine propels the car to 60mph in 4.7 seconds, reaching a top speed of 187 mph. Whilst the monstrous 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 S engine can generate up to 680 Nm of torque.
Unmistakably Bentley, the new Continental GT Convertible strikes a fierce glare over the road. Lower sports suspension emphasises the powerful front profile, which features bi-Xenon projector headlamps flanking the signature matrix grille. The curving bodyline sweeps from the distinctive Bentley front-end to a muscular rear.
The GT V8 S Convertible has an entirely redesigned front spoiler and rear diffuser giving the car a more sporty stance, full of attitude on every journey. Also, the GT V8 S sits ever so slightly lower than the V8 Convertible, thanks to the suspension being 10mm lower, with revised springs and damping on the front and back.
The starring attraction of the beautifully designed dashboard is an eight-inch infotainment screen which offers instant access to sat nav and entertainment options alike. A Naim audio system lines the cockpit with sound in the Continental GTC's Premier package, which also features ventilated massaging seats. The new Bentley Continental GTC is equally adapted to those winter months, coming equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control to make this the ideal vehicle for beating the chill.
With the flick of a switch, the insulated four-layer roof available on the V8 and V8 S trim levels offers the comfort of a coupe in the winter, while it can easily fold down to expose the driver and their passengers to the sun in the summer months. Even better, the roof can be folded down at speeds of up to 20 mph.
Sway-resistant at any speed, the Bentley Continental GT Convertible benefits from its all-wheel drive powertrain with self-levelling air suspension, plus speed-sensitive power-steering and Electronic Stability Programme to create a ride which is balanced to perfection. Shift into reverse and the rear-facing camera allows for effortless manoeuvrability in tight spots – or flick on the Adaptive Cruise Control on the open highway to enjoy a steady and secure journey. Should the Continental GT Convertible suffer a knock or blow, side impact plus thorax and knee-height airbags inside the cabin provide the utmost level of support for any passengers.
