How much power does a convertible need?
While their racing division is preparing to conquer Pike’s Peak, the drop-top engineers have announced that the 2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible is ready for Summer. As the most driver-focused convertible they’ve ever offered, it starts with the innovative chassis that debuted on the coupe.
Without a roof, the team added beefy reinforcements to the windshield frame and suspension mounts to give it the same (if not more) strength as the coupe. The reason for this is under the hood. Any Bentley with Speed in the title is an invitation to hang on. A new flavor of the W12 engine is conservatively rated at 659 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Check out what it is capable of in the GT Speed Coupe!
Riding on handsome 22″ wheels, you will reach 62 mph in 3.6 seconds on your way to a top speed of 208 mph. Handling is superb thanks to electronic differentials and rear-wheel steering. Inside you have more areas for customizations from their Mulliner bespoke department. The most intriguing among them is the option for machined anodized aluminum trim for the center console.
No less than 7 colors of fabric can be had for the roof, including tweed! Several thick layers of sound and heat insulation make up the convertible top, allowing the interior to be as quiet as the last-generation coupe. What is it all worth?
