The Continental GTC is the convertible version of the Continental GT – considered by many to be the quintessential luxury grand tourer. Which means it takes that incredible combination of performance, craftsmanship and sleek design, and gives you the added option of enjoying it all with the top down.
The Continental GTC is one of four convertible models in the range, which includes the comfort-focused Continental GTC Azure, the performance-focused Continental GTC Speed, and the pinnacle of convertible automotive craft, the Continental GTC Mulliner.

Whether you choose to drive it with the roof open or closed, the Continental GTC is a truly striking car. Most of the exterior detailing is finished in polished chrome, while the matrix front grille is gloss black, with a chrome surround. The 21”, five tri-spoke wheels and elliptical quad tailpipes only add to its striking appearance. Inside, hand-finished veneers sweep up from the centre console and flow smoothly into the doors. Handcrafted leather seats can be adorned with your choice of embroidery, piping or contrast stitching, while a wealth of interior options ensure you can personalise your car to your taste.
A twin-turbocharged V8 engine delivers 542 bhp (550 PS) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque, propelling the car from 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) – and on to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)*.
The engine is extremely efficient for its size, thanks to auto start/stop and the variable displacement system, which deactivates four of the eight cylinders when their power is not required, automatically re-engaging them when needed.
Four driving modes enable you to adjust the character of the car. Sport mode delivers a highly responsive drive, whereas Comfort mode prioritises a refined ride. Bentley mode offers a balance between the two, while the Custom mode allows you to configure the car’s settings to your taste, effectively creating your own personal driving mode.
Bentley Dynamic Ride is an optional electronic anti-roll system, designed to keep the car level when cornering, without compromising the comfort of the ride at other times.

Arguably the best aspect of the Continental GTC is the opportunity to drive with the roof down – which is why it has been designed to support open-top driving all year round. Heated armrests will help you stay cosy on cooler days, while ventilated seats will keep you cool in hot weather. You can even open and close the roof while the car is in motion, at speeds of up to speeds of 30 mph (50 km/h) – so if the weather changes, there’s no need to stop.
The car has its own Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as Apple CarPlay* and wireless charging for compatible smartphones. Connected services include over-the-air map updates for the satnav, as well as online radio. There are also three incredible sound systems to choose from. Bentley’s Signature Audio system is installed as standard. You can upgrade that to the remarkable Bang & Olufsen for Bentley or, for the ultimate in sound quality, the 20-channel Naim for Bentley system.

You can choose from seven standard exterior colours. That figure rises to over 80 when you consider paints from Bentley’s extended range, plus satin and pearlescent finishes from Mulliner. You can choose from seven outer fabrics for the roof, including flat colours and a contemporary tweed.
A host of wheel designs are available and, for extra stopping power, you can add Carbon Ceramic Brakes with striking red or black callipers. Other optional features include LED Welcome Lamps, a panoramic sunroof or the Styling Specification, which adds a sleek carbon fibre body kit to the car’s exterior.
You can swap the chrome exterior detailing for an imposing black finish, with Bentley’s Blackline Specification. On a brightly coloured car, the black detailing adds contrast, while on a darker car, it offers a more understated, stealth look.
The interior is equally striking, with five hide colours to choose from, including the rich, black Beluga and Cricket Ball, a crimson red. Five interior roof colours add more opportunity for personalisation, while the optional Colour Specification allows you to choose from Bentley’s entire range of leather colours and colour splits.
For the fascia, console and door panels, you can choose from a wide range of veneers. For further customisation, Mulliner, Bentley’s personal commissioning division, can help you create something truly unique to you.
