As early as the 90s Rolls-Royce, then owner of Bentley, tried to develop a convertible that would appeal to a wider audience than the exclusive, handmade, bespoke ones from the past. The plan was eventually carried out this century. Meanwhile in 1998, Volkswagen had taken over Bentley from Rolls-Royce, resulting in the construction of the Continental GT with the use of VW parts. The Continental shares its platform for example with the Volkswagen Phaeton. The design of the Belgian Dirk van Braeckel was completely different from its predecessors, the Continental T and R. Although assembled by hand, this Bentley is produced in higher quantities. And price-wise it’s 50% cheaper! Nevertheless this smaller, sportier-looking, cheaper version is a desirable and exclusive car.
The convertible version of the GT, the GTC, was presented in 2005 and was available from May 2006 for a price starting at € 270,000. Top speed of the car was somewhere between 189 and 195 mph (305 and 314 km / h), the Bentley was slightly faster with the roof on. The convertible is powered by the 6.0-liter W-12 twin turbo engine which produces about 560 hp at 6100 rpm and a torque of 650 Nm.
