Bentley, New Continental GT V8 Convertible, Sensational Tourer


Although closely related to the GT, the Continental GT V8 Convertible has its own distinct character. Those iconic Bentley features of dominant bonnet line, prominent matrix grille and twin large inner headlamps confirm its pedigree, while the wide track and four-square stance emphasise the performance focus of an all-wheel drive supercar. At the rear, wrap-around lamps accentuate the low, wide proportions, flanking a distinctive Bentley ‘double-horseshoe’ boot lid with a spoiler on its upper edge.

Distinguishing features for the V8 model include a red enamel winged ‘B’ badge, gloss black grille with bright chrome surround, three-segment front bumper and the ‘figure eight’ tailpipes at the rear. To call the Continental GT V8 Convertible a convertible understates its capabilities. It is both a sensational open tourer when the weather permits and a practical year-round proposition, as well insulated and refined as a coupé thanks to its four-layer roof. And for the owner of a Continental GT V8 Convertible, one of the incidental pleasures of hood-down motoring is the chance to enjoy the V8’s mechanical symphony…in full surround sound.

Traditional crafts of wood, leather and knurled metal are expressed in a crisp and modern design language all to capture the sporting, youthful spirit of the V8. The symmetrical fascia was inspired by the Bentley winged ‘B’, and features a ‘flying buttress’ centre stack and open illuminated stowage.

Inside, the ‘cobra head’ front seats can be specified with an optional neck warmer feature, tempting you to enjoy open-top motoring on your way to the ski run. Choose the optional front seat ventilation system, and excess heat is drawn out of the seat backrest and cushion by silent-running fans, allowing you to experience summer sunshine while remaining cool. Unique to the Continental V8 models is the Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer trim, giving the interior a fresh, contemporary look.

Bentley Motors was founded by W.O. Bentley in 1919 when the first Bentley engine burst into life at New Street Mews, London. From these modest beginnings, W.O’s company went from strength to strength through the 1920s, with an evolving series of acclaimed motor cars and a parade of racing triumphs to prove their outstanding performance. These laurels were capped with five outright victories at Le Mans between 1924 – 1930 and a sixth in 2003.

If we had mission statements in those days, it could not have been expressed more eloquently than in the words of W.O. himself, “To build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class”. These words are just as relevant today as they continue to inform our beliefs, actions and ambitions for the future. Located in Crewe, England since 1946 and owned since 1998 by Volkswagen AG, Bentley Motors is dedicated to making responsive and powerful Grand Tourers with the stamina to cross continents at pace, and drive in refined comfort and style.
