2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible Overview – Specs & Price – The market for the most luxurious cars are increasingly close. Brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz intend to compete for a long time, in their superior ranges, with the most exclusive, exotic and refined products on the market. But the safe bet, for those who seek the maximum exponent of comfort and distinction, is still that proposed by brands such as Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Bentley is precisely what these days reveals his new convertible luxury, a great cabrio more distinguished and, above all, more refined and technological than ever, the new Bentley Continental GT Convertible 2019.
2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible Overview
Being the convertible version of the Bentley Continental GT, we will not find too many surprises, beyond those already in the generational relief of this great tourism.
We recommend reading our article, in depth, about the Bentley Continental GT 2018, the test we did in May of this coupe and the video that we prepared on that occasion and that you can see at the end of this article.
The big difference of the B2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible with the coupe from which it derives, as it could not be less, is the use of a retractable canvas roof that requires only 19 seconds to collect, an action that can be selected at speeds of up to 50 km/h.
According to Bentley, they have worked especially on the improvement of the roof retraction system, the insulation and the design it offers, it will be available with new finishes that make this convertible even more distinguished and, also, they have sought to make the design more elegant, both with the roof closed, and open.
2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible Powertrain – V12
The Bentley Continental GT Convertible will also be equipped with a W12 engine. A twelve-cylinder that, we assume, will soon be accompanied by a V8. This W12 of 6.0 liters, at the moment, offers 635 CV of power, an acceleration of 0 to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds and 333 km / h of maximum speed. A performance that, despite being convertible, and the system it requires to open and close its roof, are almost on par with those of the coupe, which reaches the same maximum speed, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds.
As standard, the Bentley Continental GT already has 21 “wheels, although it can optionally be equipped with 22” wheels. There are different finishes for the tires, a “basic” color palette with 17 exterior finishes, and 7 finishes for the hood, which are complemented by the customized configuration by which the customer can choose any color he deems appropriate.
On board, it has a design that continues to offer quality in abundance, but seeking greater care for the technological touch, especially in entertainment systems, and in everything that provides greater comfort on board. Even so, Bentley has designed a screen, for the entertainment system, which despite its 12.3 inches is hidden smoothly, so that the driver disconnects of so much technology if he so wishes. Curious the less.
For example, Bentley points out that they have revised the onboard air conditioning system, and specifically air-conditioning of seats, to ensure that the driver can travel with the roof open at a more comfortable temperature, regardless of the outside temperature.
2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible Price & Release Date
At the moment, we do not know its price, but we assume that it is well above the BMW and Mercedes-Benz convertibles. While it is true that Mercedes-Benz sells a version with the twelve-cylinder engine of its S-Class Cabrio, the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Convertible that exceeds 300,000 euros and that BMW will have in its range with an M8, which should have version convertible.
