All-New Bentley Continental GT Convertible Pricing and Release Date 

Who doesn’t love the Bentley Continental GT? Even as a used model, it’s the perfect way to enter into the world of high-end luxury. But, you can spice things up even more, and this is done through the convertible variant of the car. 

Introducing the all-new Bentley Continental GT Convertible, a twist on the popular car that delivers top-down fun meshed with the same level of unrivaled luxury. Bentley has only just now released detailed information prior to the model’s release date, and we have everything you’ll want to know, from pricing, features, amenities, style, etc., right here. 

Continental GT Convertible Soft-Top Roof

The roof can be put up or down at speeds up to 30 mph.  

Upon release, the car will be available with 7 different roof colors. These include traditional options like black and gray, but there will also be blue, claret and the unique British tweed. To perfect the look, the roof liner can come in its own unique color as well, with these options consisting of New Red, Magnolia and others. 

Now, you may think there is only so much you can say about a car roof, but that’s not the case with this car. Bentley has improved this design to the point where it has achieved a 3-decibel reduction in noise level compared to past models. The automaker has also improved the sealing system. 

What Comes With the Continental GT Convertible and What Does It Cost? 

Of course, yes, there is much more to this car than the roof. In fact, one of our favorite amenities is the Bentley Rotating Display. Give the dashboard a clean look with a flat veneer, or swivel it around to reveal a 12.3-inch touch screen. One more swivel unveils analog dials consisting of a thermometer, compass and chronometer. 

Under the hood, the car is powered by a 626-horsepower W12 engine that launches the car from 0 – 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and helps give the car a top speed of 207 mph. A 20% lighter body certainly also plays a role when it comes to these thrilling performance capabilities.
