The Continental Convertible Brings Open-Top Adventure to Luxury and Spontaneity

The Continental is the most stylish grand tourer in the world, combining luxury and performance like no other car can. The Convertible adds the thrill of open-air to your Continental driving experience. The new Continental Convertible is available in 4 model variations – the exhilarating GT V8, the dynamic and agile GT V8 S, the luxurious GT and the ultimate expression of luxury and performance the GT Speed- providing you the freedom to choose the grand touring convertible to perfectly fit your lifestyle. The Continental Convertible is equipped with permanent all-wheel drive, and soul-stirring power combined with soul-soothing, top-down luxury for those who want to be part of the great outdoors in their journeys.

The GT Speed Convertible is Bentley’s fastest convertible. The 6.0 litre W12 twin-turbocharged engine races from 0-60 mph in an exhilarating 4.1 seconds, and to a top speed of 203 mph. The GT V8 S Convertible roars from 0-60 in only 4.5 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 191 mph. No matter which Continental Convertible model best fits your lifestyle, you and your passengers will bask an exquisite open-air driving experience, as you explore the majesty of the Rocky Mountains.

The Continental Convertible is designed to turn heads, and is a breathtaking example of Bentley aerodynamics and performance. Bentley design DNA is evident in every exterior detail. New front fenders have a more pronounced angle over the outer light, contributing to a wider, confident stance. A new wider front bumper design and the lean muscular rear haunch exude the limitless power, while the Bentley matrix grille provides a clear reminder of the car’s Le Mans 24 Hours racing heritage. The stunning, knife-edge crease lines down the sides can only be achieved by superforming – a process in which the aluminum is heated to 500°C and sculpted by air pressure. The Continental Convertible is the car for those who love to move and be moved in style and comfort.

The new Bentley Continental Convertible is an exquisite grand tourer inside and out. New exterior details accentuate Continental’s sense of movement and drive aerodynamic performance. The GT Speed Convertible is the fastest Bentley convertible, and achieves 0-60 mph in a heart-pumping 4.1 seconds, all while in complete control thanks to the Torsen permanent four wheel drive and Electronic Stability Program braking system. The addition of new steering column mounted paddle shifters let the driver effortlessly glide through the gears of the 8-speed transmission, ensuring the ideal speed for peak torque delivery, and instantaneous response and acceleration. The Continental Convertible top deploys in only 25 seconds, revealing the open air and amplifying every element of comfort and power on your journey.
