THE MOST DRIVER-FOCUSED CONVERTIBLE – THE CONTINENTAL GT CONVERTIBLE SPEED
The ultimate, open-top Grand Tourer – the Continental GT Convertible Speed. The performance-orientated Speed model is the most powerful, driver-focused interpretation of the benchmark convertible Grand Tourer.
Designed, handcrafted and engineered in Bentley’s carbon neutral luxury automotive factory, the new GT Convertible Speed offers enhanced chassis technology, including All-Wheel Steering, an electronic rear differential and the option of carbon ceramic brakes. This helps deliver superior vehicle agility and confidence without impacting on the Continental GT Convertible’s acclaimed ride comfort.
The third generation Continental GT Convertible Speed features an enhanced version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine, delivering an outstanding and increased 659 PS (650 bhp), 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h). The new open-air Grand Tourer joins its coupe sibling at the pinnacle of the Continental family.
A statement of true sporting purpose, the new Continental GT Convertible Speed effortlessly blends style with performance intent. The bold presence of the world’s finest open-top Grand Tourer has been enhanced even further with unique detailing.
Inside a luxuriously-appointed cabin, the new Continental GT Convertible model includes Speed badging on the passenger fascia, an Alcantara steering wheel and a unique colour split trim in hide and Alcantara. Whilst on the muscular exterior’s distinguishing features include Speed sport sills, dark tint grilles, speed badging and a choice from three finishes to the unique 22” forged Speed wheels.
The unique Z-fold convertible roof system is the most advanced of its kind. Available in seven exterior colours, it can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, transforming it from a luxurious coupe to an open-top Grand Tourer at the touch of a button. The roof, with its sealing system improvements and acoustic treatments, contributes to a three-decibel reduction in overall noise levels compared to its predecessor at typical cruising speeds. An entirely new combination of roof insulating materials and operating mechanism, combined with sealing system improvements and acoustic treatments, create a Convertible Grand Tourer that is as quiet as the previous generation Continental GT Coupe.
Unique to the Convertible range, the neckwarmer (which is both warmer and quieter than in the previous generation model), is seamlessly integrated into the heated and vented Comfort Seats, optimising efficiency and airflow around the electrically adjustable headrests. The styling highlight of the new neckwarmer is a chrome centre vane that stretches the full width of the duct, echoing Bentley’s famous ‘bullseye’ vents. Combined with a heated steering wheel and heated armrests, these sophisticated comfort features create a luxurious driving experience in all environments.
