2019 Bentley Continental GTC: The World’s Best Open-Top Gran Tourer?

Anyone who can afford to pay a six-digit sum for a convertible gran tourer wants only the best. And that could very well be the new Continental GT Convertible.

The new Continental GTC, as it is officially named, was unveiled late last year and Bentley claims it comes with the same levels of luxury as the coupe.

The fabric soft-top can be lowered or raised in 19 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph), and when it’s closed it offers the same quiet interior as the previous Continental GT Coupe – or at least that’s what Bentley says. This has been made possible thanks to the new acoustic and sealing treatments applied to the roof.

The new Continental GT Convertible is suitable for all environments. And with a 6.0-liter W12 that develops 635 PS (626 hp / 467 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, it’s also capable of providing drivers with a heavy dose of adrenaline. Despite tipping the scales at 2,414 kg (5,321 lbs), it goes from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and all the way up to 333 km/h (207 mph).

Inside, it’s everything one would expect from a car in this segment, and then some. Besides the great attention to detail, it also features a tri-sided rotating screen. This feature is optional, and provides a distraction-free environment with the wooden side – plus it looks more classy parked on a lawn for a concours d’elegance show.

Pushing the brake pedal feels like someone has thrown a parachute out the back and the steering is quite responsive. Also, the electronics have also made a great job at making it feel lighter than it is. These were MrJWW’s observations after driving the new Continental GT C in southern Spain and the rest of them are found in his video review that’s only a mouse-click away.
