The new Continental GT is a huge success for Bentley. With the Spring knocking on the door it was time for the roofless version of the Continental, the GTC. The new GTC was introduced to the public in November of last year, and now after three months waiting we have the first spot out of sunny Sevilla. The third generation GTC retains the elegance and style of its forebears. The all-new body and materials combine to create a truly beautiful car – roof up or down.
The Convertible’s profile is longer and lower than its forebear due to the positioning of the front wheels 135 mm further forward. This has allowed the bonnet to be extended and the nose to be lowered. The key signature power lines of its coupe sibling still dominate, flowing back towards the muscular rear haunches. The lighting on the Continental GT Convertible uses the latest LED Matrix technology, but it is the design of the headlamps that truly sets them apart. Inspired by the finest cut-crystal glasses, the internal surfaces are transparent with sharply defined edges that catch the light like a diamond. The result is similar to that of an illuminated gem – an effect which is magnified when the optional welcome sequence gradually illuminates the headlights as you approach the car. The taillights also feature the cut-crystal effect, highlighting the three-dimensional depth of the optics.
The all-new Continental GT Convertible has 21” Five Tri-Spoke wheels as standard, with the option of 10-Spoke and 22” Five Open-Spoke wheels. These three wheel designs are offered in a selection of ten polished and painted finishes. Convertible customers can choose from the palette of 17 colors, including Beluga, Onyx and Portofino. An optional extended range of colors is also available – as well as the option of full bespoke color-matching for Bentley customers. These can be coordinated with seven exterior roof colors.
