A truly luxurious benchmark for the convertible grand tourer
The Continental GTC
The Continental GTC captures the essence of the Continental GTC range, combining thrilling performance and exquisite craftsmanship with aplomb. As the quintessential convertible grand tourer, it is a stunning example of British automotive design, inside and out.
With enough space to seat four adults comfortably and room for their luggage in the boot – it is a car in which long journeys pass by blissfully. With its four-layer fabric roof closed, you could be forgiven for thinking you are sealed inside a hard-top coupé. Ultimately, however, this is a car that comes into its own with the top down – certainly the most appropriate way to hear its V8 engine roar.
A car of this calibre must be remarkably streamlined – not just in order to cut through the air but also to delight the eye. Which is why Bentley’s designers have gone to great lengths to ensure that when the roof lowers, the exterior and interior blend effortlessly together.
Thanks to an entirely new quick-closing mechanism, the roof folds and rests incredibly low against the car’s waistline. This allows a beautiful design line to sweep up from the side panels and around the rear seats, in a single, fluid curve.
Impossibly smooth yet immensely powerful, the twin-turbocharged, 4.0 litre V8 engine can deliver 542 bhp (550 PS) and 770 Nm ( 568 lb-ft) of torque, resulting in acceleration from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) – and an incredible top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h). The engine is highly efficient for its size, thanks to advanced features including auto start/stop and variable displacement, which enables it to switch off four of its eight cylinders whenever its full power is not required.
The car is equipped with four driving modes, enabling you to configure its systems to suit your mood. Comfort mode delivers an incredibly refined ride – perfect for long-distance cruising. Sport mode increases responsiveness for thrilling dynamic handling. Bentley mode offers an optimum balance between the two, while Custom mode allows you to adjust individual system settings to your liking. The optional Bentley Dynamic Ride anti-roll system aids both handling and ride refinement, enabling you to hug bends more tightly, without compromising on comfort when driving on long, straight roads.
The new Continental GT Convertible includes a wealth of innovative technology developed specifically to enhance the open-top experience. While the new Continental GT Convertible is built to make the most of the sunshine, it has also been engineered to excel in more wintry conditions. With Bentley’s new Active All-Wheel Drive at your disposal, this is a grand tourer to be enjoyed all year round.
To complement the exhilaration of driving with the wind in your hair, both the front seats are equipped with innovative cooling technology to keep you comfortable, even in the height of summer. Even on a crisp, bright day in winter, you can enjoy the thrill of open-top driving, thanks to a heated armrest, heated steering wheel and discreet front seat neck warmers that gently circulate warm air around your neck and shoulders.
Continental GTC Azure
There is nothing like driving in the fresh, open air to make you feel alive. Effortlessly powerful and incredibly luxurious, the Continental GTC Azure is a convertible grand tourer like no other. Timeless design comes together with exquisite craftsmanship and unique Azure details to delight every occupant, whether you travel as a passenger or take the wheel.
A suite of driver assistance systems, meanwhile, make every journey feel effortless. Created to elevate the experience of drivers and passengers alike, the stunning Continental GTC Azure is a truly unique car.
The twin-turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 petrol engine delivers truly breathtaking performance. Capable of producing 542 bhp, it can take you from zero to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds). And if the weather changes while you’ve got the roof down, there’s no need to stop. It can be raised or lowered electrically at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h).
The Bentley powerline flows smoothly from the front wheels and back to the haunch – while the roofline follows above it. When the roof folds down it is stowed seamlessly, preserving the car’s sleek silhouette. A bright chrome front grille and lower bumper grilles add a sparkling sense of style to the front of the car, while polished chrome wing vents and badging complete an exquisite picture.
The cabin is deceptively spacious for a two-door convertible, offering enough room for four adults to sit in comfort. With the four-layer roof closed, the insulation is so effective that it feels like travelling in a hard-top coupé. The connection between exterior and interior design is everything in a convertible – and not just when the roof is open. That’s why the sleek, flowing lines of the exterior are reflected in the design of the cabin.
From the treadplates to the Azure emblems on the fascia and the seats, the car includes handcrafted details that identify it as an Azure – a car with comfort and wellbeing at its heart. The car features luxurious details such as contrast stitching and sustainable wool upper trim, jewel oil and filler caps, deep pile overmats, sports pedals and even an optional heated, duo-tone steering wheel.
Continental GTC Mulliner
To drive the world’s most finely crafted luxury grand tourer is one thing. To drive it with the top down is quite another. Combining exhilarating performance with exquisite Mulliner craftsmanship and the latest automotive technology, the Continental GTC Mulliner is a convertible GT unlike any other.
Available with either a 4.0 litre V8 engine or a 6.0 litre W12 engine, it features digitally controlled chassis systems that guarantee a glorious drive, whatever the weather. With innovations in comfort, handling and convertible design, this is a car you can enjoy driving with the top down all year round. Consider it the most exquisitely crafted convertible on the road.
Crafted to match the Mulliner detailing seen elsewhere on the car, the gleaming radiator grille is paired with bright chrome lower bumper grilles, to make an instant statement. The exquisite convertible lines of the Continental GTC are complemented with exclusive Mulliner detailing, including gleaming wing vents, Mulliner badging and mirror caps painted satin silver. The 10-spoke 22” Mulliner wheels feature a duo-tone painted and polished finish that creates a sense of extra depth. In the centre, self-levelling wheel badges keep the Bentley ‘B’ logo upright at all times.
The Bentley interior has been crafted to create a sense of wonder, from the illuminated treadplates to the Mulliner instrument panel graphics. Emblazoned on the exclusive Grand Black Veneer fascia you will see the car’s convertible silhouette. You can choose from eight seating and trim colour combinations, each one featuring a unique three-colour split. Throughout the interior, you will benefit from Mulliner embroidery that matches your chosen accent colour.
