Bentley Continental GT Convertible Is All-New

The all-new Bentley Continental GT Convertible, powered by a 626 horsepower 6.0-liter Bentley W12 engine mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission, accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds to a top speed of 207 mph. The convertible roof, available in contemporary tweed, can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, with the car travelling at speeds of up to 30 mph. The third generation Continental GT Convertible features Bentley Dynamic Ride, a 48-volt roll control system that controls and adjusts the electronic actuators on the anti-roll bar of each axle for handling and ride comfort, as well as making the car feel lighter and more precise. The Convertible’s profile is longer and lower than its predecessor due to the positioning of the front wheels 135 mm further forward which has allowed the hood to be extended and the nose to be lowered. The standard audio system features 10 speakers and 650 Watts, while a Bang & Olufsen 1,500 W, 16-speaker system with illuminated speaker grilles is available and a Naim 2,200 W, 18-speaker system with Active Bass Transducers built into the front seats and eight sound modes is also offered.
