What happens when you find yourself behind the wheel of this very special black-on-black Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible? Your alter ego is unleashed, your deep dark side giggles with delight and you find you have the ability to blow the minds of everyone you come in contact with! When we handed over the Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible outfitted with Mulliner Driving Specification to the photographer and we trusted him to capture the sexy allure beauty of this special Bentley that sits atop black-painted wheels.
This insanely bold Mulliner Driving Specification package exclusive to Continental black, includes diamond-quilted seats, doors and rear quarter inserts, embroidered Bentley emblems, jewel fuel, and oil filler caps, 3 spoke heated duo-tone indented hide trimmed steering wheel. Piano black, dark stained burr walnut or dark fiddleback eucalyptus veneer, choice of 2 tone interior color splits and extended hide colors, sports pedals, 22-inch 5 open-spoke black-painted wheels, and 22-inch tires compete for the specification selections for this mysterious stand-out machine.
This new Continental GT V8 Convertible is joining the W12 powered sibling in the showroom to complete the convertible lineup and offering anyone a real choice in power. But, take note, the distinct V8 exhaust note will just send you to places of dark-side joy, consummate with the lively and engaging drive that complements the unparalleled levels of luxury and cutting-edge technology.
Our GT V8 Convertible’s tailored roof can be deployed or stowed in just 19 seconds, which came in handy every time we summoned our dark side power to create a thunderstorm to rinse the pollen off our car. Why slow down? The roof can be retracted and closed at speeds of up to 30 mph transforming our ride from an open-top back to a luxurious coupe, and concert hall in no time.
The choice of seven different fabric hood colors, matched with features including 20-inch, 10-spoke painted alloy wheels, subtle V8 badging, and a sublime handcrafted interior, offer a distinct sculpted and sharply defined look.
Offering the ultimate combination of immense power with impressive fuel efficiency, the Continental GT Convertible offers excellent weight distribution making the dynamic V8 feel even more agile and responsive. The Continental GT Convertible distinctive, higher-revving engine has a personality of its own and this new generation twin-turbocharged engine develops 542 bhp that produces a characterful V8 burble through the stylish quad exhaust pipes. The added efficiency results in an increased road trip range of up to 500 miles.
