New 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible: Official

Wed, 02 Jan 2013

The Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible, the drop top version of the GT Speed, has been officially revealed ahead of a Detroit Auto Show debut.

Just as expected, Bentley has transplanted all the goodies from the latest version of the GT Speed in to the GTC Speed, which means a fulsome 616bhp and 590lb/ft of torque from the delicious 6.0 litre W12 and, despite gaining more than 200kg to keep the huge Bentley stiff without its roof, the GT Speed Convertible manages to hustle to 62mph in 4.1 seconds – just a tenth slower than the tin-top Speed.

That extra lard does have more impact as you head towards 100mph with the convertible taking 0.7 seconds more, but there’s not exactly a paucity of power on offer. In fact, Bentley say the GT Speed Convertible is the fastest 4-seat convertible…in the world.

The rest of the GTC Speed Convertible is pretty much the same as the GT Speed, with dark chrome mesh at the front, big rifled tail pipes and lots of Mulliner quilted leather and aluminium on the dash. The GT Speed Convertible also gets a small spoiler on the boot lid to keep it on the ground and a set of bespoke 21″ alloys.

The 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible goes on sale in the summer, and although Bentley hasn’t come up with a price yet you won’t go far wrong if you expect it to be around £165,000.
