CONTINENTAL GTC SPEED

Overview

The Continental GTC Speed is one of the most powerful grand tourers ever built. And as a convertible, it means you can enjoy this unique combination of extreme performance and unrivalled luxury with the top up or down.

Whatever the weather and however you prefer to drive, you will enjoy an unbelievable balance of motorsport-inspired luxury craftsmanship and blistering acceleration. It is simply thrilling, in every sense of the word.

Powered by a 6.0 litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine, the Continental GTC Speed is the most exhilarating car in Bentley’s convertible line-up, which also includes the Continental GTC, the comfort-focused Continental GTC Azure and the stunning Continental GTC Mulliner.

Design

With its taut lines and purposeful design, the Continental GTC Speed exudes racing character and road presence. The Styling Specification is a cost option that adds attitude with a carbon fibre body kit, while the front grilles feature a dark-tint finish. The internal components of the headlamps and taillamps are tinted to match, adding to an overall sense of dark sophistication.

Inside, exclusive Speed features are on display wherever you look, from the colour split and embroidery on the diamond quilted leather and Dinamica, to the Speed-branded instrument panel graphics and sports pedals. It all adds up to a truly stunning sporting aesthetic.

Performance

This is the most powerful convertible that Bentley has ever created, with an incredible top speed of 208 mph (336 km/h). Producing 650 bhp (659 PS) and accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds), the Continental GTC Speed exhibits truly astonishing performance for a four-seat convertible.

The roof can be raised or lowered while you drive, at speeds of up to 30 mph (50km/h). Four driving modes give you the opportunity to tailor your drive to your mood. As well as Comfort, Bentley and Custom, they include the thrilling enhanced Sports mode, which adjusts engine, transmission and suspension settings to boost dynamic ability. It even makes the exhaust note louder.

The car also features an electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD). This active chassis system automatically optimises the amount of torque transmitted to each rear wheel – so you can accelerate out of corners with greater control.

Bentley Dynamic Ride is a 48-volt electronic anti-roll system that adapts to driving conditions, controlling body roll when cornering at speed, without compromising on comfort during more relaxed drives.

All-wheel steering, meanwhile, reduces the car’s turning circle at low speeds, while at higher speeds, it means you can make confident, quick, sure-footed lane changes, with reduced body roll.

Technology

Driving the Continental GTC Speed with the top down is an incredible experience. And with ventilated seating for hot summer days, plus heated armrests, steering wheel and neck warmers for cooler drives, you can enjoy it whatever the weather.

For urban driving, the City Specification adds a variety of driver assistance features including a Top View Camera, Traffic Sign Recognition*, pedestrian warnings, auto-dimming mirrors and hands-free boot opening. For the open road, the optional Touring Specification adds the Bentley Safeguard Plus warning systems, a Head-Up Display, a Night Vision Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist.

The car is fitted with Apple CarPlay**, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless phone charging. The Bentley Signature Audio system is installed as standard, however you may wish to consider the 16-channel Bang & Olufsen for Bentley system or the 20-channel Naim for Bentley – arguably the finest in-car sound system available anywhere.

Among the most impressive technological features, however, is the Bentley Rotating Display, which prompts the central touchscreen to revolve out of sight at the touch of a button, to be replaced with a veneered panel featuring three stunning analogue dials.

The My Bentley smartphone app, meanwhile, gives you the ability to connect to your car remotely. You can use it to locate your car if you can’t remember exactly where you parked, or to check whether the windows are closed and the doors are locked. It can even alert you if your car is moved without your consent.

Personalisation

You can make your car your own with a wide range of personalisation possibilities. There are 16 standard paint finishes to choose from – a figure that rises to over 80 when you also consider the colours in the extended range, plus the satin and pearlescent finishes available from Mulliner.

The next step is to match your colour choice with one of seven available roof finishes, including modern matt fabrics and a contemporary tweed option.

Inside, the Colour Specification allows you to choose from 15 primary hide and Dinamica colours, plus 11 secondary colours for the cabin’s unique Speed colour split. A wide range of stitching and piping options is available, to enhance your upholstery further.

The interior veneered surfaces are also subject to your tastes, with options spanning traditional high gloss woods, contemporary open-pore woods or technical finishes.

For further customisation, you can enlist the help of Mulliner, Bentley’s personal commissioning division, to create truly bespoke features and finishes for your car.
