The convertible edition of Bentley's GT V8 S delivers all of the stunning performance and luxury of the coupé.
And combines it with the thrill of open-top motoring, accompanied by the roar of the 4.0 litre V8 engine.
The new Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible can be discovered in more detail at Jardine Motors Group dealerships in Essex and Kent.
The driver and passenger are protected from the elements (as well as wind, road and engine noise) by a four-layer fabric roof which can be electrically raised or lowered at speeds of up to 20mph.The secluded feel of the cabin when the roof is up, along with the smooth power delivery of the eight-speed ZF transmission, give you a marvellously serene environment in which to enjoy the Continental entertainment system.In addition to giving you access to any Bluetooth®-enabled smartphone, tablet or media player, this system boasts Eleven Balanced Mode Radiator speakers that supply sound of the utmost clarity.
Blessed with even more chic looks than its coupé counterpart, the GT V8 S Convertible is a work of art.
With a ride height lower than the other vehicles in the Continental range, along with a sports suspension providing stiffer springs and damper for a sportier ride, the stunning appearance of the GT V8 S gives ample indication of its performance credentials.
The astonishing opulence of the vehicle's cabin is equally impressive.
Piano-black veneers complement smooth metal surfaces and premium-quality leather seats and upholstery.
Indeed, buyers have the option of ventilated seats, which stop them getting uncomfortably warm on summer days.
This convertible provides the best of both worlds for drivers; when you have had enough of the resonant sound of the V8, you can raise the well-insulated electric roof and enclose yourself in the quietest and most serene of spaces.
The GT V8 S Convertible boasts an array of advanced safety measures.
The manoeuvrability offered by the responsive steering is enhanced by a number of additional features to help you retain control in all circumstances.
Such as an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Hydraulic Brake Assistance (HBA), Drag Torque Control (MSR) and aquaplane detection for wet conditions.
The exceptional speed and strength of the anti-roll bars offer significant protection if the vehicle should tip over – although a low centre of gravy and four-wheel drive make this exceedingly unlikely.
