DESIGNED, engineered and handcrafted in Britain, and representing all Bentley knows about creating the world’s most stylish and elegant grand tourers – the new third generation GT convertible is the very essence of the luxury brand.
The tailored convertible roof can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, with the car travelling at speeds of up to 50 km/h, transforming the Continental GT convertible from a luxurious coupe into an open-top grand tourer at the touch of a button.
Seven different fabric hood colours are available, including an authentic tweed finish for the first time, while a newly designed neck warmer is seamlessly integrated into the heated seats.
Combined with a heated steering wheel, seat heaters and new heated armrests, these sophisticated comfort features create a luxurious driving experience in all environments.
The all-new Continental GT convertible is powered by a 6.0-litre Bentley W12 engine that pushes out close to 467kW of power and 900Nm of torque, mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission.
It has a combined fuel cycle of 14.0-litres/100km and is capable of accelerating from a standing start to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 333km/h.
The new Continental GT convertible also showcases major evolution in Bentley’s unique application of technology. An advanced, fully digital, driver-focused instrument panel and Bentley Rotating Display for the driver are among the suite of innovations.
The latter features an impressive 12.3-inch touchscreen housed in a three-sided unit, which revolves from pure veneer to reveal either a touchscreen or three elegant analogue dials – offering customers the option of a digital detox when desired.
The new Continental GT convertible will go on the market at $462,240 plus on-roads, with the first customer deliveries due in quarter two of next year.
