Continental GT Convertible

The Bentley Continental GT Convertible is the quintessential open-top grand tourer.

Its powerful 6.0 litre, W12 twin-turbo engine includes a variable displacement system that combines lower emissions with greater output, elevating the power to a stunning 582 bhp (590 PS). You’ll feel the promise of performance the moment you slide your hands around the redesigned steering wheel; your fingers, a touch away from the column-mounted paddle-shift gear selectors.

On the outside, the model’s iconic chrome grille gleams exquisitely. Inside the cabin, the steering wheel with paddle-shift gear selectors invites a supremely assured grip, while cleverly designed storage means all that you need is now even closer to hand.

This is a Bentley Continental convertible that can either soothe or stir the soul.

Design

812_BEN_GTMY16_S_EXT_GTCW12_RearBumper_v3a_R.jpg

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, 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.

Interior Design

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.

Transmission

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.

Seat Options

Choose the optional front seat ventilation system, and excess heat is drawn out of the seat backrest by silent-running fans, allowing you to enjoy hood-down summer motoring in the Continental GT Convertible while remaining cool. This option is paired with a seat massage system, including two lumbar massage cells and ten surface massage cells, for an invigorating massage that extends right down the back to keep you alert and relaxed as you drive. And for those cool summer evenings or crisp spring mornings, the Continental GT Convertible offers a further inducement to enjoy hood-down motoring.

With the optional neck-warmer feature, a discreet vent in the seat just below the headrest provides a stream of warm air to take the chill off your drive. Three speed settings allow you to achieve the ideal level of comfort for the conditions. When a convertible looks this good hood down, you’ll want to enjoy it all year round. And with seats like these, you can.
