Each bodyline, crease and swell of bodywork has a look of millimetre-perfect precision. From the front, the face of the Continental GT Convertible appears hewn from solid metal, with distinctive large inner headlamps flanking the familiar Bentley mesh grille. A sweeping bodyline spears backwards from the front wheel to meet the muscular curve of the rear wheel’s haunch, projecting a wide and confident stance. Superforming, a technique that uses a combination of 450ºC temperature and air pressure, is used to form the Continental GT Convertible’s immaculately tailored lines.
The Continental GT Convertible delivers breath-taking performance, resulting in true open-air exhilaration. Its twin-turbo W12 engine now produces 590PS, with maximum torque of 720 Nm available from just 1800 rpm for effortless power at the flex of the driver’s right foot. The figures tell their own story: the Continental GT Convertible accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 196 mph.
An all-wheel drive powertrain gives the Continental GT Convertible reassuring traction in all conditions. The impressive power of the W12 engine is sent to all four wheels, with a 60:40 rear power delivery bias for optimum handling. As a result, it is not simply one of the fastest convertibles in the world but also one of the most confidence-inspiring, delivering exceptional grip and control.
In the Bentley Continental GT Convertible interior, the design team has created a cocoon of curved yet crisply-defined planes and surfaces. From the sweep of the fascia architecture, inspired by the form of the Bentley wings, to the satin-chrome dials with their white illumination, the interior of the Continental GT Convertible expresses timeless Bentley design cues with contemporary flair. The seats can be commissioned with semi-aniline hides to give the cockpit a spacious ambience and their slim line design offers easy access to rear seats. All leather surfaces are soft-touch, yet seams and edges are precisely defined. Instrument graphics are elegant and clear; the cabin architecture has a refined, inviting feel. The cockpit of the Continental GT Convertible has been designed to provide tactile and visual delight, together with outstanding levels of comfort. These are the hallmarks of a true Bentley grand tourer.
