Description

Whatcar says…

“The Bentley Continental GT Convertible has serious visual drama, and the mighty performance and capable handling prove it isn't just an act. It’s comfortable, refined and hugely luxurious.

The Continental GT comes with a choice of three engines, a twin-turbocharged, direct injection V8 with 500bhp, and a mammoth 6.0-litre W12 with either 567bhp or 616bhp.

They’re all exceptionally fast and keen to unfurl their awesome power at very low engine speeds. Rivals to the Bentley GT Convertible aren't exactly commonplace, and none are quite as comfort-orientated as the Bentley.

Pretty much everything in the cabin covered with soft leather or polished wood, so it’s an incredibly luxurious environment.

The Continental GTC has all the safety kit you'd expect from a luxury convertible. The Bentley GT Convertible comes with just about all the exotic equipment imaginable.

In typical Bentley style, customers can specify virtually any other luxury item they might desire”.

 

TopGear says…

“Top class -The GT in the GTC’s name is there for a reason.

The Bentley Continental GTC was belatedly given the mechanical and visual updates its coupe sister car benefitted from in 2011, but this only served to further enhance its position as an object of real desire. The Continental GTC is arguably better proportioned than its coupe sibling thanks to the flatter rear boot line and lower roof. Now faster than ever, its hood is so sumptuously thick you wonder how it folds. And with the launch of the V8 version, Bentley has taken the entry-level prices down to a slightly more affordable level. It hardly becomes main stream but, when combined with much better economy, does make it more viable.

The V8’s lighter weight also aids the handling. That huge nose tucks into corners more eagerly and the massive 2.5-tonne kerb weight doesn’t seem quite as mesmerising. You could even call it lithe, if you hadn’t ever sampled the delicacy or finesse of a Porsche or Aston. The four-wheel drive chassis also hangs on gamely but, should your senses finally return and you begin driving the Conti GTC in the way nature intended, it will also waft along with a cosseting ride and extremely relaxing gait.

 There might be the odd familiar switch in there, but the rest has been thoroughly updated with the facelift. The satnav is now brilliant, not tragic, for example. But the main impression is of a hugely appealing driving environment. Not just because shocking pace is only a mere toe prod away, but because of the obvious love and attention that’s gone into building it. It’s likely you’ll get RSI from operating the chrome air vent openers, such is the pleasure of their action. The seats are beautifully comfortable, but keep the leather and wood finishes simple if you don’t want to look like new money.

You could spend Continental GTC money on a ’Benz, but where’s the imagination in that? The GTC is born in Bentley’s Crewe production facility, being meticulously constructed with real care and attention by skilled craftsmen and women. Look at it that way and it’s cheap. Even so, running costs for the W12 will be punishing for mere financial mortals, but CEOs and directors (and the odd footballer’s wife) don’t need to worry about such things. And if they do, enter the V8, with a 40 per cent fuel economy improvement. Although of much more relevance will be the fact it goes 40 per cent further before the footballer’s wife has to get fuel put into the tank."
