At the flick of a switch, the four-layer insulated roof of the Continental GT V8 S Convertible folds down, to expose driver and occupants to the sun. Even if you set off before deciding, the top can still be folded down at speeds of up to 20 mph.

Once in motion, the upgraded Continental chassis and suspension system combine to provide a more responsive drive, while the satisfying roar of the 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine – all the more important when driving with the top down, comes with the option of a sports exhaust system with a revised pipe architecture, redesigned silencers and re-tuned mountings.

Inside, the Continental entertainment system can be paired with almost any Bluetooth smartphone, tablet or media player to provide instant access to your music.

Eleven Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) speakers make it possible to direct the sound around the cabin with accuracy and clarity across the audible spectrum, while for the most discerning audiophiles, the Naim for Bentley sound system features fifteen channels of flawless sound.
