Bentley's convertible GTC is spun off the mechanicals of the Continental GT coupe. The four-seat convertible shares its platform and major drivetrain components with the coupe and with the Flying Spur sedan, including a W-12 engine with twin turbos generating 552 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard, as is a six-speed automatic transmission.
For 2008, the GTC gets minor updates including a handful of new options, new colors, and upgraded technology. The GTC's stability control now includes a "sport traction" mode. Like the coupe, the convertible now gets standard Sirius satellite radio, a new Breitling clock, better Bluetooth hardware and a brake pedal embossed with Bentley's historic "B" logo.
New options for the GTC include a rearview camera, a three-spoke steering wheel, carbon-ceramic brakes, new green or gray paint, and new tan or green leather interiors.
Pricing for the 2008 GTC starts at $193,990. It goes on sale in the fall.
