The new Bentley Continental GTC has smartened up and has a more muscular yet contemporary look. It is powered by a 6.0 litre twin turbo charged W12 engine that launches the car from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 195 mph. It runs off normal petrol and E85 bio-fuel or any mix of the two. Bentley says this FlexFuel system delivers Co2 reductions of seventy percent when measured from the oil well to driving. Bentley also say the Continental averages 17mpg; 24.9mph when cruising but just 11mpg in town. Co2 emissions are approximately 384g/km.
This new four-seater luxury convertible features a new, even more spacious and sumptuous hand-crafted cabin, with soft-touch leather hides, an extensive range of wood veneers, cool-touch metals and deep-pile carpets. There are 17 standard soft-touch leather hide colours with six colour split combinations, complemented by a range of seven veneers, all produced by Bentley’s talented craftsmen and women.
The triple layered fabric hood can be put up in 25 seconds while driving at speeds of up to 25mph. There is a neck warmer that blows warm air on to your nape together with heated and massaging seats.
Starting price is approximately £150,000 with orders books open now and first deliveries at the end of the year.
