Exterior Design

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. Super forming, a technique that uses a combination of 500ºC temperature and air pressure, is used to form the Continental GT Convertible immaculately-tailored lines.

At the rear, wrap-around lamps accentuate the low, wide proportions. They flank a distinctive Bentley ‘double-horseshoe’ bootlid with a small spoiler on its upper edge. And instead of adding an unsightly antenna, Bentley makes the boot lid out of composite SMC, which is transparent to GPS and media signals. It’s a detail, but emblematic of the care and attention that has been applied to every aspect of the design process.
