The Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible boasts its capabilities from the first time you hear its name. This model follows on from the ground-breaking achievements of its GT Speed counter-part and adds an entire new element to your driving pleasure. Hood-down driving allows the driver to feel part of the landscape around them, clever design allows for less intrusion to the cabin and greater driving enjoyment that allows the driver to tune-in to the slow burble of the twin oval tailpipes during refined driving or the snarling growl of the W12 engine as it soars to the red band.

The GT Speed Convertible features some new cabin options to enhance the sporting feel from the standard Continental GT Convertible even further. A new engine spin option is available in Dark Tint aluminium, unique to the GT Speed Convertible as well as carbon fibre which is available to the console, roof console and fascias as well.
The GT Speed Convertible focuses on open-top driving. And naturally there isn't anything that hasn't been thought of. The soft-top roof not only provides an exhilarating escape to the outside world. But when you're not enjoying the open world, the hood closes down to provide acoustic refinement that you'd expect from a hard top. Bentley have even included a discreet vent in the seat just below the headrest which provides a stream of warm air to take the chill off open-top driving.
Run by an all improved W12 engine with peak power at a staggering 625PS and a phenomenal 800NM of torque, matched to a close-ratio eight-speed automatic transmission that can propel the GT speed from standing to 60mph in just 4.1 seconds and all the way on to 202mph without even being able to feel a break in power during gear changes. Tweaked turbocharger settings have also seen an increase of 12% in fuel economy, allowing the GT Speed Convertible to match the same fuel economy as its standard counterpart.
A revised Electronic Stability Programme calibration gives the driver free rein to explore the limits of this exceptionally powerful vehicle. A tuned and lowered suspension accentuates the glued-to-the-road feeling provided by the all-wheel drive system that makes cornering in the Continental GT Speed Convertible smooth and sublime, yet reassuringly safe.
As expected in a Bentley, the interior customisations allow you to choose from a wide range of colours and combinations for your hides. Bentley work at the pinnacle of premium hide production, allowing you to customise and cover the interior with sumptuous, premium quality leathers and select your own style and colours, with hand crafted stitching to complement. Everything about the GT Speed Convertible screams high performance, yet doesn't require racing driver skills to enjoy whilst being able to adore the GT Speed's luxury interior, quality and ergonomics.
