Design

Truly extraordinary design

Sharing the same breath-taking styling of the new Continental GT, the new Continental GT Convertible is truly extraordinary. Every inch a grand tourer, it features a sleek, new Bentley design language, characterised by sharp lines sweeping the length of the car.

Low, wide proportions lend the car an air of power and presence – an effect emphasised by every detail, from cut crystal-effect LED matrix headlamps to LED tail lamps that resemble illuminated red gemstones.

With the four-layer insulated roof closed, the new Continental GT Convertible exudes sophistication. A choice of fabrics allows you to put your personal stamp on your car – you can even opt for a stunning new Tweed roof, for a truly individual touch. All this before you even step inside.

Streamlined roof design that delights

A car of this calibre must be remarkably streamlined – not just in order to cut through the air but also to delight the eye. Which is why Bentley’s designers have gone to great lengths to ensure that when the roof lowers, the exterior and interior blend effortlessly together.

Thanks to an entirely new quick-closing mechanism, the roof folds and rests incredibly low against the car’s waistline. This allows a beautiful design line to sweep up from the side panels and around the rear seats, in a single, fluid curve.

A luxurious handcrafted interior

Inside, a continuous ring of handcrafted veneer sweeps from the fascia into the doors, encircling the driver and front passenger. Design cues pick up on the exterior lines, for seamless style when the roof is down. From dual veneers and diamond knurling to the stunning Bentley Rotating Display, the interior of the new Continental GT Convertible represents the ultimate in British automotive craftsmanship.

Performance

Innovative all new performance

The new Continental GT Convertible epitomises the spirit of grand touring – the desire to drive the world’s finest roads in comfort, exhilaration and style. That’s why the 6.0 litre Bentley 12-cylinder engine beneath its bonnet delivers the perfect fusion of power and refinement. With an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission for smooth, fast gear changes, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds) and reach a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h). Whilst travelling at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h), the roof can still be open or closed.

Learn more about the performance of the new Continental GT

The new Continental GT Convertible features a choice of four drive modes, allowing you to adjust the car’s performance to suit your journey with a simple, smooth turn of a dial. Choose from Comfort, Sport, Bentley mode or Custom, where you can configure your own combination of settings. With such a wide range of driving modes at your fingertips, you can enhance your drive with every turn.

The most advanced Bentley ever

The new Continental GT Convertible includes a wealth of innovative technology developed specifically to enhance the open-top experience.

While the new Continental GT Convertible is built to make the most of the sunshine, it has also been engineered to excel in more wintry conditions. With Bentley’s new Active All-Wheel Drive at your disposal, this is a grand tourer to be enjoyed all year round.

To complement the exhilaration of driving with the wind in your hair, both the front seats are equipped with innovative cooling technology to keep you comfortable, even in the height of summer.

Even on a crisp, bright day in winter, you can enjoy the thrill of open-top driving, thanks to a heated armrest, heated steering wheel and discreet front seat neck warmers that gently circulate warm air around your neck and shoulders.

New Continental GT Convertible First Edition

new-Verdant-green-Bentley-Continental-GT-Convertible-driving-in-profile-by-the-sea

THE CONTINENTAL GT CONVERTIBLE FIRST EDITION

To celebrate the arrival of the new Continental GT Convertible, a limited number of First Edition cars will be built. Rare, collectible and extremely luxurious, they feature unique design details, including a First Edition exterior badge and a First Edition fascia badge. Each badge depicts a Union Jack with a number ‘1’ in the centre.

The Union Jack and the words ‘FIRST EDITION’ can also be seen embroidered on each headrest and emblazoned on both treadplates, while contrast stitching adorns the diamond quilt pattern found throughout the cabin.

Many of the most desirable Bentley options will also be included as standard, including Dual Veneers. Adding Dual Veneers allows you to pair your choice of veneer trim, from Tamo Ash, Liquid Amber, Dark Stained Madrona or Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, with Grand Black – a new finish, exclusive to the First Edition.

The First Edition features the stunning Bentley Rotating Display, while option packs include the City Specification, Mulliner Driving Specification and Touring Specification. The Front Seat Comfort Specification, meanwhile, ensures you can take advantage of the new Continental GT Convertible’s all-weather features, including a heated armrest, neck warmers and heated, ventilated front seats.
Deep Pile Overmats, mood lighting and Illuminated Sills add to the ambience inside, while LED Mulliner Welcome lamps light your way when getting in and out of the car at night. Finally, a special 22” 5 Open Spoke Wheel is available, with your choice of finish.

The ultimate expression of the world’s finest convertible grand tourer, the new Continental GT Convertible First Edition will be available to order from your Bentley dealer.

Personalisation

Practically limitless customisation

Like every car built at Bentley’s factory in England, the new Continental GT Convertible is crafted by hand. This gives you the freedom to personalise your car, from the exterior finish to the woods, hides, stitching and diamond knurled metal inside. You can even opt for a centre console finished in Côtes de Genève, inspired by the design of Swiss watches.

A wide range of exterior paint finishes are available, alongside the option to create your own personal colour with the Mulliner Paint service. Mulliner is Bentley’s personal commissioning department, responsible for bespoke customisation requests.

Hood and roof options

After the exterior paintwork, the most prominent feature of a convertible is often the roof itself. That’s why Bentley gives you the opportunity to choose from a range of seven different hood finishes, including a contemporary new Tweed option.

A further eight options are available for the roof headliner – the innermost layer in a four-layer insulating roof that’s so secure when closed, it can be easy for occupants to forget they’re travelling in a convertible.

Introducing new hide colour: Cricket Ball

Among the wide range of hide colours to choose from – including duo-tone themes – is a new colour, created specifically for the new Continental GT Convertible. Cricket Ball is a deep, rich red, evocative of the leather that encases cork cricket balls. It works particularly well with the new Tweed roof.
