The Bentley GTC is a beautifully built convertible with excellent engines offering impressive levels of performance. The interior is simply luxurious.
To help shift a vehicle of this size and weight needs a very special engine and Bentley have supplied one in the shape of its incredible 6.0 litre W12 engine. There's also an economical 4.0 litre V8 with a twin turbo version producing 520bhp available. The W12 engine produces 590bhp and has a top speed of 195 mph and will reach from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds. However, the car weighs in at 2,495kg which means that performance will hit the economy figures; the GTC will return just 17 mpg on the combined fuel cycle while having CO2 emissions of 384g/km. Opt for the new entry-level version of the GTC with the impressive V8 and the owner still gets an impressive performance with a top speed of 187mph and it takes five seconds to reach from 0 to 62mph. Economy is around 26 mpg. But that's not all; there's also a 'Speed' version of the GTC which the firm claims is the world's quickest four seat convertible which has a top speed of 202 mph.
The Bentley GTC's roof is lowered by simply pressing a button and the result is a glorious driving experience, particularly at speed, with the engine sounding throaty and eager. Indeed, the car has four different modes for driving and in the comfort setting it's like riding on a magic carpet; the vehicle simply glides over potholes and roads and yet is still a very responsive drive. With the roof up, there's very little road noise thanks to the insulation levels - apparently there are several layers in the hood's construction and the eight speed automatic gearbox makes this an easy vehicle to keep control of.
When it comes to driving a beautiful convertible that speaks volumes as a grand tourer, few can compare with the GTC. It not only has it got sharp handling and great performance, the GTC is a very attractive luxury four seat convertible to look at. It also goes without saying that the GTC has incredible levels of style, comfort and luxury.
However, don't let the size of the GTC intimidate potential buyers since its own road performance is nimble and agile and belies the size and weight of the car.
Standard kit includes a satnav system that offers Google satellite imagery, hand stitched quilted leather seats, excellent wood trim - there's not a lot missing from the list. There are also options including a Wi-Fi hotspot and a sports steering wheel.
