Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible

Bentley to unveil new Continental GT Speed Convertible at NAIAS

Billed as the world's fastest four-seat convertible, the new flagship performance will take its top down and show all at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

With a big 6.0-liter turbocharged W12 engine putting out 616 bhp through an 8-speed transmission, the new Bentley's top speed is 202 miles per hour - all with an open top and seating for four.

The new look for the Continental GT line is definitely much more muscular and sporting, showing that the staid British carmaker is returning to its roots at the race track. This convertible entry has a powerful, track-ready look with Bentley's signature luxurious style. From the race track to the highway to the 5-star hotel, the Continental GT Speed Convertible looks the part.

The convertible will sport exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels, dark-tint grilles, and rifled exhaust tail pipes. Inside, it features a Mulliner Driving Specification interior, making it pure Bentley to drive.

The Continental GT Speed Convertible will debut at the NAIAS show on January 14th, just a few weeks after its race-ready brother the Continental GT Speed was shown at the LA Auto Show.

A Tesla Roadster Sport is way quicker (and quieter) than one of these 2.5 ton behemoths, but they do look and sound good, don't they?
A Roadster Sport barely seats two and has a lower top speed. Besides, they don't make the Roadster anymore. :)
Yummy! I'm gonna call my local dealership here in Singapore (Wearnes) and order myself one. And in this unique purple-magenta colour too! Sick of my Murcielago already, it's much too loud for me! I prefer a more refined low growl.
