Bentley reveals Continental GT Speed Convertible images and details

Bentley will use the Detroit Auto Show later this month to unveil its new Continental GT Speed Convertible, which it describes as ‘the world’s fastest four-seat convertible’.

A 625 PS (616 bhp) twin-turbocharged 6-litre W12 engine gives a remarkable top speed of 202mph, while also delivering a 15% improvement in driving range, fuel economy and emissions.

Bentley says its close-ratio 8-speed transmission, uprated and lowered suspension and retuned steering provide ‘exhilarating acceleration and sharp, communicative handling without detriment to the renowned ride comfort’.

Designed to resist even monsoon-force rain, the four-layer hood has been exhaustively tested in conditions from -30°C to +50°C. Inside, the handcrafted cabin features the Mulliner Driving Specification as standard.

Bentley Chairman and Chief Executive, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, commented: “The new GT Speed Convertible will appeal to drivers who seek the sensory thrills of the world’s fastest four-seat soft-top and the practicality of a year-round grand tourer, together with unrivalled levels of luxury and refinement.”
