Bentley Continental GT Convertible spied at the ‘Ring

Bentley Continental GT Convertible spied at the ‘Ring

-    The Bentley Continental GT Convertible is expected to be revealed later this year. 

-    The soft-top replaces the sensuous lines of the coupe.

-    The cabin and the powertrain will remain the same. 

Bentley took the wraps off the new-gen Continental GT in August 2017. It’s been more than a year since the coupe has been on sale and yet there is no sign of the drop-head version. Now, the Crewe-based carmaker was recently spotted at the Nurburgring testing the GTC ahead of the speculated year-end reveal. 

The GTC test mule previews a soft-top and the rest of the body is wrapped in the same camo which was used on the Continental GT’s test mule. The sloping lines of the coupe have been excluded from the convertible and the GTC is seen with a flat deck at the back. This makes the GTC appear boxier compared to the sensual looking GT. The GTC test mule was riding on the same 22-inch alloy wheels as seen on the coupe.

Under the wraps, the GTC will carry forward the same fascia with quad-headlights and ellipsoid taillights. The cabin will also be carried forwarded without many changes. There is a 12 emblem on the test mule’s front fenders. This clearly hints at a W12 motor lurking under the hood. The biturbo 6.0-litre behemoth produces 626bhp and 900Nm in the Conti GT. A 48-volt hybrid system comes as standard here and it will be the same case in the GTC as well. The eight-speed DCT sends power to all four wheels accelerating the coupe from standstill to 100kmph in just 3.7 seconds. However, due to gain in weight of the drop-top to maintain the stiffness, the GTC will be slightly slower.

We hope to see the third-gen Continental GT Convertible revealed later this year. When launched, the GTC will take on the likes of Ferrari Portofino, Mercedes-AMG S63 Convertible and Aston Martin DB11 Volante, apart from the upcoming BMW 8 Series Convertible.
