BENTLEY GT SPEED CONVERTIBLE
Take in more of every spectacular journey, from the redesigned cabin of the new Continental GT Speed Convertible – the ultimate expression of the open top grand tourer. Speed is embedded in Bentley’s history. The name dates back to the Le Mans 24 Hour race-winning Speed Six. Then as now, the pursuit of performance was balanced by the quest for reﬁnement.
Can you improve on what is already the most powerful and exquisite Continental GT?
Indeed you can. The new Black Edition offers a host of striking colour schemes that visually embody the Continental GT Speed Convertible’s phenomenal performance. Four dynamic colourways bestow even more road presence on the already-formidable flagship: Hallmark, Beluga, St James’ Red and Cyber Yellow.
With its lower ride height, the Black Edition feels even faster – and it looks faster, too. The brightware – which includes headlight and grille surrounds, lower body side strips and door handles – is no longer chrome, but has instead been finished in a brooding, evocative black, with all-black 21" Five-Spoke Directional Sports wheels to match. Contrasting black or red brake callipers and optional colour-matched door mirrors bear further evidence of the power that lies underfoot.
The Bentley GT Speed Convertible features Mulliner GT Design seats - newly restyled with smaller diamond upholstery and a semi-aniline hide option - are welcoming yet superbly supportive. Switch on the neck warmer feature and a stream of warm air from a discreet vent just below the headrest takes the chill off your drive. The seat massage system includes two lumbar and ten surface cells to keep you alert and relaxed as you drive.
An ultra-high performance convertible, the new Continental GT Speed Convertible is capable of 0-60mph in just 4 seconds, with a top speed of 204 miles per hour. But drive with the hood down and a new dimension is revealed: the open air, where every aspect of the comfort and power of the GT Speed Convertible seems amplified. You’ll feel it the moment you grasp the restyled steering wheel, flip through the new knurled paddle-shift gear selectors and drop your foot irresistibly downwards.
By bringing the GT Speed Convertible just 10mm closer to the ground, Bentley's chassis engineering team laid the foundation for an even sportier driving experience. To do so, they changed the springs, dampers, anti-roll bars and suspension bushes. The result is improved body control under hard cornering together with greater agility.
