Continental GT V8 Convertible

With its dominant bonnet line, prominent matrix grille and twin large inner headlamps the Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible combines the refined luxury for which Bentley is famous with the exhilaration of a powerful, convertible grand tourer.

To simply call this car a convertible understates its capability. It is both a sensational open tourer when the weather permits and a supremely comfortable year-round drive, as acoustically and thermally well insulated as a coupé, thanks to its unique, four-layer roof.

This Bentley V8 convertible takes open-top comfort to new levels and, with the roof down, lets you enjoy the its exquisite mechanical symphony in full surround sound.

To enquire about availability, please contact your local Bentley dealer.

Exterior Design

The Bentley Continental V8 Convertible looks as sleek and aerodynamic as any coupe, its four-layer electric hood complementing the Continental’s sculptural curves perfectly.

Distinguishing features include a red enamel winged ‘B’ badge to the front and rear of the car, a three-segment front bumper, ‘figure-of-eight’ tailpipes and a lip-style spoiler at the wider, more purposeful rear. At the front, an optional lower chrome grille can also be specified, to complement the main chrome matrix grille, above.

Interior Design

The symmetrical fascia of the Bentley GT V8 Convertible was inspired by the winged ‘B’ badge, and features a 'flying buttress' centre stack and open illuminated stowage.

Inside, the 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.

Standard on the Continental GT V8 Convertible is Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer, which gives the interior a fresh, contemporary look.

Alternatively, Dark Stained Madrona is available as an option, as well as eight other optional veneer and technical finishes.

The Continental GT V8 Convertible’s engine is astonishing, not just for what it does but also for the way it does it. The power and torque figures of 500 bhp (507 PS) and 660 Nm from 4 litres alone would indicate that the V8 is an advanced high performance engine. But take into consideration that the car’s CO2 emissions are a mere 246 g/km. Even though the engine develops a full 500 bhp (507 PS), its power to emissions ratio is unmatched in its class.

All-Weather Enjoyment

The roof of the Continental GT V8 Convertible is so well insulated that, with the top up, it’s easy to believe you’re in a coupé. With the top down, however, there are several features designed specifically to enhance the thrill of open-top grand touring.

Heated front seats are a standard feature whereas integrated neck warmers, a wind deflector and a heated steering wheel are all included in the All Seasons Specification package or as separate options, taking the chill off any cold-weather drive.
