With the new Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible, open-air grand touring is always exhilarating. With a spirited V8 engine, innovative technology, sleek, contemporary design and exquisite attention to detail, you are both completely in touch with the road beneath you and fully connected to the world around you.
This Bentley V8 convertible is designed to be equally stylish with the roof open or closed. When the roof is up, it merges seamlessly with the streamlined body to form a silhouette that looks inspired in any landscape. As the roof lowers, it is stowed compactly to allow a single beautiful design line to emerge from the side panels and sweep around the rear seats in one fluid movement. The stunning looks continue on the inside. Whether the roof is up or down, you are cocooned in refined comfort, with a single hide colour, from a choice of five colours as standard, used throughout the cabin to create an inviting space. A contemporary Crown Cut Walnut veneer, sustainably sourced from Black Walnut trees on the Eastern side of North America, completes the interior in style.
The new Continental GT V8 Convertible is exceptionally responsive, with astonishing powers of acceleration that can take you from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) and on to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)*. You won’t just feel the power of this remarkable car as you accelerate, you’ll hear it too, with the gratifying burble of the Bentley V8 engine particularly rewarding when the roof is down. Four Bentley driving modes allow you to adjust chassis and drivetrain settings to suit the road beneath you. The Comfort mode offers a refined ride that makes every journey a pleasure, the Bentley mode delivers the perfect balance between performance and refinement and the Custom mode allows you to calibrate the settings precisely as you like them.
The exuberant performance of the new Continental GT V8 Convertible is made possible by a range of intelligent driver technology. Active All-Wheel Drive gives you total confidence whatever route you take, while eight-speed dual-clutch transmission provides supremely quick gear changes that enhance the engaging driving experience. Adaptive cruise control uses long-range radar to maintain your distance from the car in front, and a suite of driver assistance systems help to make even the longest journey a pleasure.
The Colour Specification increases your choice of hide colours from five to fifteen and also offers four elegant duo tone colour splits, as well as introducing three additional interior hood colours that ensure your surroundings are just as pleasing when the roof is closed. You can also choose from a range of seven single veneers, any of which can be enhanced by a gleaming Chrome Pin Stripe, and seven dual veneers. The Front Seat Comfort Specification includes the heating and cooling functions that enhance convertible driving, while the City Specification and Touring Specification make driving effortless wherever you travel.
