Design

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.

Performance

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.

Technology

A wealth of innovative features enhance the pleasure of convertible grand touring even further. The roof can open or close at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h) and does so faster than ever before. Ventilated seats make summer driving extra pleasurable, while a heated armrest, heated steering wheel and discreet neck warmers encourage you to keep the roof down on cooler days. When you wish to feel more enclosed, the four-layer roof has been engineered to keep you as insulated as a Bentley GT coupé. 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.
