Bentley’s World’s Fastest Four-Seat Convertible to debut at Detroit Auto Show 2013
Designed in true Bentley style for those who accept no compromises, here’s the British luxury automaker’s latest, fastest and most thoughtfully-executed open-top performance flagship, the 2014 Continental GT Speed Convertible that offers unrivaled luxury and refinement of a coupé yet transforms into a gorgeous open tourer at the touch of a button. Taking place at the pinnacle of the Bentley Continental GT range with peak power of 625PS or 616 horsepower, this GT Speed Convertible which has an impressive top-speed of 202 mph, will appeal to discerning drivers seeking the sensory thrills of the world’s fastest four-seat soft-top and the practicality of a year-round grand tourer. Scheduled to be unveiled on 14th January at the North American International Auto Show, Detroit, the ride’s subtle sporting design cues include exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels, dark-tint grilles and ‘rifled’ exhaust tail pipes, and on the inside it features the Mulliner Driving Specification with its distinctive diamond-quilted hide upholstery as standard, blending contemporary luxury with a distinctive sporting character.
Boasting muscular lines, and sporting hand-crafted luxury, the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible offers exhilarating supercar performance from uprated 625 PS W12 engine and 8-speed transmission, which not just powers the vehicle to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds, but also delivers a 15% improvement in driving range, fuel-efficiency and emissions.
Notably, the bodyshell of the Continental GT Speed convertible is exceptionally rigid, laying the perfect foundation for a more engaging driving experience.
And, it has been exhaustively tested in all sort of extreme weather conditions, thus making sure it even resists snow-fall, monsoon-force rain and maintains luxurious, comfortable, draft-free warmth even on the coldest days.
Also, we have earlier seen some of the other finest Bentley models like the Bentley Mulsanne Diamond Jubilee Edition which is a royal car by every means, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, besides the most expensive Bentley ’1929-32 model’ which was expected to fetch $6.3 million at the Bonhams auction, to name a few.
