Bentley gave its iconic Continental GT a redesign for the first time in 15 years, and now it has a convertible version.
The GTC mimics nearly all of the coupe’s offerings, with a few key differences – chief of which is the lack of permanent hardtop roof.
The star of the show here is a new power-folding soft top that transforms the GTC into open-air mode in 19 seconds while traveling up to 30 miles per hour (48 kilometers per hour).
The new car is also five percent stiffer than its predecessor, and a bit lighter, though it still has a curb weight of 5,322 pounds (2,414 kilograms). For reference, the new GT coupe weighs 4,947 lbs (2,244 kg).
Just like in the coupe, the 6.0-liter W12 engine is good for 626 horsepower and connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The droptop completes the sprint to 60 mph (96 kph) in 3.7 seconds.
