Each 20-inch Design alloy wheel features six tri-spokes, black-painted brake callipers and the Bentley ‘B’ badge at the centre of each. Twin oval exhaust pipes bring a distinctive look to the rear, as do the vivid LED tail lights above. The same motif adorns the nose of the bonnet, just above a bold grille which is flanked by Bi-Xenon headlights that feature LED daytime running lights. These provide the car with a distinctive light signature. The W12 legend adorns either fender and is the kind of detail that is sure to attract the gaze of discerning eyes.
A Burr Walnut wood veneer interior awaits as you step inside. The high-quality materials used to furnish the cabin are tactile and luxurious to the touch. Satin Chrome dials gleam with white illumination, Mulliner GT Design seats are created from semi-aniline hides, and the winged Bentley emblem is emblazoned on each headrest. Seats are at once slim but cocooning. The look and smell of quality leather only adds to the luxurious ambience of the cockpit. A quilted-leather and knurled sports gear lever and drilled alloy sports foot pedals exemplify the Mulliner Driving Specification that echoes Bentley’s rich heritage. You can personalise the interior by choosing from 17 hide colours and colour splits.
A 6.0-litre twin turbocharged W12 engine delivers 582bhp and up to 720Nm of torque at 1,800rpm. With the Continental GT, you can go from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds and it is possible to reach a maximum speed of 196mph. Velocity is not achieved to the detriment of comfort; the driving experience is assured and smooth. This is thanks in no small part to an all-wheel drive powertrain that provides plenty of stability and lots of traction when you need it.
The new Bentley Continental GT Convertible offers a wide range of infotainment options. A full-colour touchscreen is your interface to a 30GB hard drive that features a wealth of mapping information. Half of the hard drive is given over to your music of choice.
You can also enjoy sounds from the car’s six-disc CD changer, digital radio or by inputting your own MP3 player, iPod or SD card. Bluetooth connectivity ensures that you can stream music from your compatible hand-held devices too. The cabin’s exceptional acoustics ensure that audio content channelled through bespoke loudspeakers is clear, accurate and rich-sounding.
There are plenty of airbags on board to make sure that each traveller is as well-protected as possible in the unlikely event of a collision. The car’s inherent stability ensures that it is rarely put in jeopardy but systems such as Stability Control help you to recover control of the car if it begins to skid.
The vehicle is designed for sturdiness as well as comfort, with metal hoops that project outwards to protect rear-seat passengers. At the front, the reinforced windscreen also offers protection if the car were ever to roll over.
