All-weather enjoyment

The Continental GT V8 Convertible is a sensational open tourer when the weather permits and a practical year-round proposition, as well-insulated and refined as a coupé, thanks to its four-layer insulated roof. Inside, the 'cobra head' front seats can be specified with an optional neck warmer feature, tempting you to enjoy open-top motoring on your way to the ski run. Choose the optional front seat ventilation system, and excess heat is drawn out of the seat backrest and cushion by silent-running fans, allowing you to experience summer sunshine while remaining cool.

Engine Technology

Four years is a short span of time in which to develop a revolutionary new engine, yet Bentley's commitment in 2008 to develop a GT capable of a 40% increase in fuel-efficiency has now been achieved with the new V8. It can be admitted, however, that Bentley already had expertise in one technology: variable displacement, where four of the eight cylinders are effectively switched off at gentle throttle openings. That technology now makes its appearance in the new direct injection V8. Watch our V8 film to learn more about this impressive technology.

Infotainment

The Continental GT V8 Convertible’s infotainment system is every bit as compact, powerful and technologically advanced as the cars that houses it. As standard the Continental GT V8 Convertible comes with an eight channel, eight speaker system, with 15GB of storage for music. Music can be played via an iPod, MP3 player, the car’s own six-disc CD changer or even an SD card.

The touch-screen navigation system includes live traffic data*, online access for point of interest searches*, a 30GB hard disc drive offering rapid access to a continent-full of mapping and even the option of satellite landscape imagery*. As you drive, it provides real time monitoring of your tyre pressures, access to your phone contacts (either via Bluetooth or by inserting your SIM card) and the opportunity to zoom in or out of mapping at the slightest touch of a finger.
* Not available in all markets

Sound system

Choose the Naim™ for Bentley audiophile system and the number of audio channels rises from eight to fifteen, with ten custom-built speakers in the Continental GT V8 Convertible.

The result is a quality of music reproduction that is uncannily like being at the live performance, every caress of finger upon guitar string, every nuance of a singer's voice brought to life with clarity and passion.
