Sharing the same design DNA as the new Continental GT, the new Continental GT Convertible is truly extraordinary. With sharp sweeping lines and an imposing presence, the GTC is every inch a Bentley grand tourer.
The new Continental GT Convertible features more distinctive and sleeker styling than that of its predecessor. As well as a longer wheelbase which has allowed the engine to be situated above the front axle, improving weight distribution and overall handling of the car.

From the LED matrix headlamps inspired by cut crystal glasses, to the ruby-red LED tail lamps, the new Continental GT Convertible is desirable from every angle.
Thanks to a cleverly designed closing mechanism, the roof sits very low against the car’s body whilst folding ensuring the sleek exterior design lines are not disrupted. With the top up or down, you can expect to turn heads with the new Continental GT Convertible.
Like that of every Bentley, the interior fascia is inspired by the wings of the Bentley badge.

Design elements such as, the dual veneers, diamond knurling and stunning Bentley Rotating Display showcase the uncompromised attention to detail that Bentley is renowned for.
