There is a double turbocharged, direct injection V8 engine with 500bhp; as well as a massive 6.0-litre W12 having either 567bhp or 616bhp.

Interior & Exterior

Having an electrically powered adjustment for driving position, the seats of the GT Convertible are brilliantly supportive to the driver. The dashboard is great and reflects the style of the wings in the Bentley badge.

There is plenty leg room for the seats in front, but the rear seats have limited space. Tall drivers are going to be comfortable with the headroom, and the boot is spacious enough.

The GT Convertible comes with any imaginable exotic you can think of. From satellite navigation to sophisticated stereo, the super car is packed with luxury equipment. There is a paddle-shift system and different settings for climate controls for either when the roof is up or down. What else?

Every safety kit that can be expected of a luxurious convertible like the GT Convertible is present. There is the pop-up rollover protection, the system that protects the passengers when in danger of accident. The head restraints prevent whiplash, and there are four standard airbags. A 4 – wheel drive with electronic brakes distribution, stability and cruise control complete its perfection.

Though its maintenance costs such as insurance and fuel is a bit high, it has an enormous resale value. The Bentley GT Convertible nevertheless, has everything you could need in any super car.
