Bentley Continental GTC | Part Two

Bentley Continental GTC

Bentley Continental

Overview
  • An all-new 2+2 convertible version of the Continental GT coupé that blends peerless Bentley craftsmanship and design with modern technologies to provide unparalleled comfort in an open-top car.
  • Ultra-stiff body structure benefits vehicle refinement and dynamic performance.
  • A stunning cabin that uses exquisite Bentley design and craftsmanship to create a spacious, welcoming interior. A classic mix of leather hides and wood veneers give a contemporary but timeless appearance.
  • Unique seven-bow, three-layer, soft fabric roof with heated glass rear screen operates electro-hydraulically and provides peerless acoustic damping and exceptional refinement during use.
  • Wide variety of exterior and interior roof colours gives the customer more design choice.
  • Outstanding performance thanks to a top speed (roof up) of 195mph (312km/h) and a 0-60mph time of 4.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds).
  • With the roof down the top speed is still a remarkable 190mph (306km/h)
  • Powered by the awesome Crewe-built, W12 twin-turbocharged 6-litre engine, tuned to provide not just a massive 552bhp (560PS/411kW) but 479lb ft (650Nm) at just 1600rev/min to deliver that legendary Bentley wave of torque from low revs.
  • New rear suspension system improves the ride and refinement, and increases roof stowage space without impacting on 235-litre luggage compartment volume, which can carry skis and golf bags or travel bags simultaneously.
  • A high-tech, all-wheel-drive system with Torsen differential for exceptional stability and grip in any conditions is driven by an advanced six-speed automatic gearbox with manual change mode and paddleshift controls.
  • Air suspension with continuous damping control (four adjustable settings).
  • The Continental GTC shares its massive braking system with the Continental GT coupé. The 405mm ventilated front brake discs are the largest diameter discs of any series production passenger car on sale today.
  • The Bentley Continental GTC will begin its global roll-out from the end of 2006.
