For those who want to soak up the sunshine in the fastest offering by Bentley , here are some pictures for you to drool at.
Apart from the eye-sore of a paint-job, the Bentley GTC Speed retains the aggressive stance of the GT Speed sans the roof. While it’s fun to drive with open-top freedom, it does add some extra weight and hampers the stability of the vehicle, though none of these problems are of concern if you’re intent on torturing it at a track.
Staying true to the "Speed" suffix, the convertible is powered by the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine pulled straight out of its hard-top twin, it develops 625-horsepower and 800 Nm of torque, which is quite a lot for a GT luxury cruiser. With an expected time of 4.2 seconds to hit 60mph from standstill and a top speed of 200mph, this makes it the fastest convertible offering since the Bentley Continental Supersports ISR Convertible.
It’s expected to be unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show with a price slightly more than the $220,725 of its hard-top variant. But, being a Bentley, customers wouldn’t fret paying the extra premium for open-top freedom.
