Exterior

The new Continental GT Convertible retains the elegance and style of its forebears. More sculpted and sharply defined, the all-new body and materials combine to create a truly beautiful car – roof up or down.

To compliment the sculpted body, the all-new Continental GT Convertible has 21” Five Tri-Spoke wheels as standard, with the option of 10-Spoke and 22” Five Open-Spoke wheels. These three wheel designs are offered in a selection of polished and painted finishes. In total ten different wheel styles are available.

Choose from the palette of 17 standard Bentley exterior paint colours, including Beluga, Onyx and Portofino. An optional extended range of colours is also available – as well as the option of fully bespoke colour-matching for Bentley customers. These can be coordinated with seven exterior roof colour options.

Interior

From the highest-quality leathers, to rare, sustainably sourced veneers, such as Koa and Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, the cabin of the Continental GT Convertible is a triumph for craftsmanship and artisanal skill. The dashboard is styled and sculpted by long, flowing wings that mirror the shape of the Bentley badge. Unique dual-veneers are available, which offer over 10 square metres of wood within the cabin. You can also choose a polished wooden steering wheel. Additionally, choose from eight interior hood lining colours, including Red, Blue and Magnolia.

The centre console is finished to match the lower fascia, but can be specified in a new technical finish that is inspired by the delicate mechanical surfacing inside the finest mechanical Swiss watches, known as Côtes de Genève.

Open-top grand touring

The elegantly tailored convertible roof can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, even with the car travelling at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h). This transforms 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.

A newly designed neck warmer (which is both warmer and quieter than in the previous generation model), is seamlessly integrated into heated Comfort Seats, optimising efficiency and airflow around electrically adjustable headrests. Combined with a heated steering wheel, seat heaters and new heated armrests, these sophisticated comfort features create a luxurious driving experience in all environments.

Performance

The all-new Continental GT Convertible heightens the sensory experience of open-air motoring with exhilarating performance. A powerful 6.0-litre Bentley W12 engine is mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission.

The new powertrain uses the latest engine management technology to produce 635 PS (626 bhp) and 900 Nm (664 lb.ft.) of torque, and accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds), on to a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).

Technology

The new Continental GT Convertible also showcases major evolutions 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” touchscreen housed in a three-sided unit, which revolves from pure veneer to reveal either the screen or three elegant analogue dials.

The new Continental benefits from features designed to keep both driver and passengers connected at all times. Apple CarPlay, improved navigation features including Online Search and Private eCall offer an enhanced connected experience within the car.

Two technology option packs are offered at launch: City Specification for urban journeys and the Touring Specification for long-distance driving, both curated to optimise the customer experience.

Elegant, sophisticated and refined, the all-new Continental GT Convertible is the pinnacle of open-top luxury Grand Touring.
