New Continental GT Speed Convertible

Take in more of every spectacular journey, from the redesigned cabin of the new Continental GT Speed Convertible – the ultimate expression of the open top grand tourer.

Speed is embedded in Bentley’s history. The name dates back to the Le Mans 24 Hour race-winning Speed Six. Then as now, the pursuit of performance was balanced by the quest for refinement.

As the fastest Bentley convertible, the new Continental GT Speed Convertible is a worthy successor. Drive it with the hood down and a new dimension is revealed. You’re no longer an observer of the passing landscape but a part of it, with every aspect of your journey amplified in the open air.

Continental GT Speed Convertible Black Edition

Can you improve on what is already the most powerful and exquisite Continental GT?

Indeed you can. The new Black Edition offers a host of striking colour schemes that visually embody the Continental GT Speed Convertible’s phenomenal performance. Four dynamic colourways bestow even more road presence on the already-formidable flagship: Hallmark, Beluga, St James’ Red and Cyber Yellow.

With its lower ride height, the Black Edition feels even faster – and it looks faster, too. The brightware – which includes headlight and grille surrounds, lower body side strips and door handles – is no longer chrome, but has instead been finished in a brooding, evocative black, with all-black 21" Five-Spoke Directional Sports wheels to match. Contrasting black or red brake callipers and optional colour-matched door mirrors bear further evidence of the power that lies underfoot.

This vibrant look runs seamlessly throughout the cabin – exhilaration and elegance co-existing in one sumptuous space. The sports steering wheel features contrast stitching and is hand-upholstered to match the Mulliner Design Seats and the satin finish Carbon Fibre fascia and console.

Also available is a new Black Edition interior colour split, with seats and centre console bordered by contrasting leather, available in Porpoise, Beluga, Pillar Box Red or new Cyber Yellow to match the exterior styling accents. Corresponding contrast stitching accentuates the diamond quilting of the doors and Mulliner GT Design seats.

Experience the Black Edition to capture the essence, and the spontaneity, of what driving a Continental is all about. Contact your dealer to learn more.

Design

GTCSpeed_Front34_1920 x670.jpg

Exterior Design

With its four-layer fabric hood in place, the Continental GT Speed Convertible has the profile of a high-performance Bentley coupé. Yet, once the hood is stowed away, the eye can survey a smooth, uninterrupted sweep of bodywork. In this form the clean, confident proportions of the GT Speed Convertible are even more striking: the seamless Superformed wings and crisply-defined body creases create an impression of tension and muscularity, right back to the redesigned rear lip spoiler.

Interior Design

The Bentley GT Speed Convertible features Mulliner GT Design seats - newly restyled with smaller diamond upholstery and a semi-aniline hide option - are welcoming yet superbly supportive. Switch on the neck warmer feature and a stream of warm air from a discreet vent just below the headrest takes the chill off your drive. The seat massage system includes two lumbar and ten surface cells to keep you alert and relaxed as you drive.

Mulliner Driving Specification

The name Mulliner has been associated with some of the greatest Bentleys of all time, including the iconic 'R' Type Continental of 1952. It's appropriate therefore that the Continental GT Speed Convertible is equipped with the Mulliner Driving Specification as standard. Diamond quilted leather seats, indented leather headlining and embroidered winged 'B' emblems on the headrests add a touch of handcrafted distinction. Drilled alloy pedals, a knurled sports gear lever and Jewel oil and fuel filler caps are inspired details from a distinguished heritage.

Performance

Engineering

An ultra-high performance convertible, the new Continental GT Speed Convertible is capable of 0-60mph in just 4 seconds, with a top speed of 204 miles per hour. But drive with the hood down and a new dimension is revealed: the open air, where every aspect of the comfort and power of the GT Speed Convertible seems amplified. You’ll feel it the moment you grasp the restyled steering wheel, flip through the new knurled paddle-shift gear selectors and drop your foot irresistibly downwards.

Suspension

By bringing the GT Speed Convertible just 10mm closer to the ground, Bentley's chassis engineering team laid the foundation for an even sportier driving experience. To do so, they changed the springs, dampers, anti-roll bars and suspension bushes. The result is improved body control under hard cornering together with greater agility.

Efficiency

Bentley’s engineering team has ensured that the new Speed Convertible W12 engine and powertrain is just as fuel-efficient as the Continental GT. The latest engine management system, an eight-speed transmission and careful refinement of the turbocharger settings have seen an overall improvement of 12% in fuel economy, with a commensurate increase in tank range compared to the previous generation model.

Veneer Options

All Bentley wood veneers are cured for 72 hours and treated with five layers of clear lacquer by hand, to achieve a luxurious finish without compromising the natural beauty of the grain. The Continental GT Speed Convertible features Piano Black veneer as standard, but there is also a range of other ethically sourced veneers to choose from, alongside the more technical look that can be achieved with Carbon Fibre, Bright Tint Aluminium or Dark Tint Aluminium.

The dark tint aluminium finish is a unique sporting signature, exclusively available for GT Speed Convertible models. This technical finish has an assertive, dark presence and compliments the performance flagship position of the Speed.
