Bentley is introducing the all-new Continental GT Convertible that will leave you blown away with its elegant and sculptural exterior styling coordinated with an exquisite handcrafted cabin, featuring the highest quality leathers and sustainably sourced veneers. The tailored convertible roof can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, with the car cruising at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h).
The all-new Continental GT Convertible draws its power from the 6.0-litre Bentley W12 engine which is mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission. The new powertrain uses the latest engine management technology to produce 635 PS (626 bhp) and 900 Nm (664 lb.ft.) of torque, and accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds), on to a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).
The profile of the all-new Continental GT Convertible is longer and lower than its forebear due to the positioning of the front wheels 135 mm further forward. The car has 21” Five Tri-Spoke wheels as standard, with the option of 10-Spoke and 22” Five Open-Spoke wheels. These three wheel designs are offered in a selection of ten polished and painted finishes.
The exquisite interior of the all-new Continental GT Convertible is clad in the highest-quality leathers. Rare, sustainably sourced veneers, such as Koa and Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus enhance cabin’s elegance. Unique dual-veneer is offered, with over 10 square meters of wood used in every car. The dashboard is styled and sculpted by long, flowing wings that mimics the shape of the Bentley badge. There are eight interior hood lining colors, including Red, Blue and Magnolia.
Passengers can enjoy the ride while sitting in the 20-way adjustable Comfort Seats and blasting the music. A choice of three audio systems is offered in the new Continental GT Convertible. The standard system features 10 speakers and 650 Watts, while a Bang & Olufsen 1,500 W, 16-speaker system with illuminated speaker grilles is available, benefiting from the first automotive application of the BeoSonic system – a new way for tone setting with a simple, intuitive one-touch user interface. A Naim 2,200 W, 18-speaker system with Active Bass Transducers built into the front seats and eight sound modes is offered for the true audiophile.
The new Continental GT Convertible is fitted with few innovations like an advanced, fully digital, driver-focused instrument panel and Bentley Rotating Display for the driver. The later offers the choice between a digital or analogue journey. Once the engine start button is pressed, the veneer in the middle of the dashboard glides silently forward and rotates to reveal Bentley’s largest-ever touchscreen, a 12.3” high-definition-quality digital MMI display, elegantly designed by Bentley with a customer-configurable home screen with three windows able to display the driver’s preferred functions, for example, navigation, media and telephone. The user interface is designed to be akin to a modern mobile phone and menus are structured to be instantly intuitive.
The all-new Continental GT Convertible boasts 17 exterior paint colors, with up to 70 hues available in the extended range. There are also 15 luxurious carpet options, eight different handcrafted veneers (with a further four dual veneer options) and 15 choices of interior trim hide, which means that customers are able to specify their own choice of luxury finish. Seven exterior roof colors are available, including for the first time a contemporary interpretation of traditional British tweed. Black, Blue, Claret and Grey are among the other options. Furthermore, eight interior roof liner finishes are offered, ranging from New Red to Magnolia.
