The 20-inch three-spoke Design alloy wheels feature the iconic Bentley ‘B’ badge at the centre, accompanied by black-coated brake callipers. A gleaming chrome radiator grille sits below the bonnet, at the top of which is the winged Bentley emblem. On either side are Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps, all of which add to an arresting face completed by a tri-part front bumper. At the rear, LED tail lights ensure the vehicle is easily visible even in severe fog or sandstorms.
The sophisticated cabin is resplendent in Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus wood veneer, smooth, polished metals and soft-to-the-touch leathers. A single-tone colour scheme gives the cockpit a timeless yet fresh appeal. The interior can be customised with a choice of four hide colours and a wide range of duo-tone colour splits. Mulliner GT Design front seats honour the heritage of the Bentley marque, while providing utmost comfort. The winged Bentley insignia is thoughtfully placed around the cockpit, notably on headrests. The dashboard is a subtle echo of the same motif; each dial and gauge adding refined detail, something that is particularly noticeable with a hide-and-chrome-trimmed gear lever. A 260-litre boot offers plenty of room for luggage or impromptu shopping trips.
From a gentle purr to a throaty roar, the Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible delivers a palpable thrill every time you start the ignition. A 4.0-litre twin turbo-charged V8 engine ensures the car can accelerate from a standing stop to 60mph in just 4.7 seconds. It is also capable of a top speed of 187mph. The vehicle has a muscular 500bhp and a peak torque of 660Nm at 1,700rpm. You can shift through the gears effortlessly with eight-speed transmission enabling a smooth and efficient driving experience.
A vivid touchscreen display relays essential driving information, real-time traffic data and is also your interface with the entertainment options at your disposal. A 30GB hard drive features an array of mapping information.
Half of the drive is given over to storage space for your music. You can also listen to tunes by connecting media from an SD card, iPod or MP3 player. There is the further option of streaming your library of sounds using the car’s Bluetooth connectivity, which also enables you to communicate hands-free with the outside world.
The cockpit is a music lover’s dream when the Naim Audio sound system is in full effect. Listen as your favourite music is faithfully reproduced through ten bespoke loudspeakers, providing clarity and warmth.
An array of safety features includes Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control, all of which provide you with more control on testing road surfaces. Emergency Braking Assist automatically increases brake pressure if ever an impending collision is detected.
The pressure of your tyres is constantly monitored and any significant fluctuations are relayed to the display screen.
