Bentley Motors has introduced a Continental GT Speed Convertible – the most powerful, driver-focused variant of the benchmark convertible Grand Tourer. The car is fitted with an enhanced version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine, delivering an outstanding and increased 659 PS (650 bhp), 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h).
Designed, handcrafted and engineered in Bentley’s carbon neutral luxury automotive factory, the new GT Speed Convertible is equipped with enhanced chassis technology, including All-Wheel Steering, an electronic rear differential and the option of carbon ceramic brakes.
The Continental GT Speed Convertible offers unique exterior and interior detailing, including Speed sport sills, dark tint grilles and Speed badging. Customers can also choose from three finishes to the unique 22” forged Speed wheels. It is fitted with a tailored, ‘Z-fold’ roof that can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, transforming it from a luxurious coupe to an open-top Grand Tourer at the touch of a button. Unique, 22” Speed wheels come in matching Dark Tint, with the choice of Bright Silver or Black Gloss finish. A Jewel Fuel and Oil Filler Cap, plus illuminated BENTLEY display to the outer treadplate are a nod to the Speed’s performance credentials.
The luxuriously appointed cabin includes Speed badging on the passenger fascia, an Alcantara steering wheel and a unique color split trim in hide and Alcantara. Customers can further choose from 15 main and 11 secondary hide choices. Piano Black veneer is standard, with Crown Cut, Dark Stain Burr Walnut and Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus offered as no-cost options. Sports pedals and Speed treadplate plaques are fitted as standard, while customers can choose the optional Dark Tint, Engine Turned Aluminium console, or a leather alternative to the Speed color split trim and the Speed Colour Specification. A neckwarmer is integrated into the heated and vented Comfort Seats, optimizing efficiency and airflow around the electrically adjustable headrests.
