Bentley is readying a new generation of its Continental GT, and the Convertible variant was spied recently.

Exterior Design

It is heavily disguised, but you can make out many of the details. The designers have once again chosen a soft-top roof for the convertible. The car’s lines have been inspired by Bentley’s very impressive EXP 10 Speed 6 concept that was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show. Each taillight unit features a large oval-shaped design element, also borrowed from the EXP 10 Speed 6.

With a Thule kayak roof rack for Tacoma, you’re all set to get the most out of your passion. Instead of a cumbersome trailer, you get a kayak car rack that is easy to load and unload as well as ensuring safe and secure transportation of your kayak.

Chasis/Platform

Underneath the Continental Convertible’s sheet metal is the MSB platform that is also used on the 2017 Porsche Panamera. It allows significant weight savings as well as compatibility with alternative power-trains.

Engine and Performance

The core power-train in the new Continental GT along with the convertible variant will be a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 with an output of at least 600 horsepower, up from the 582 hp found in the current model. A GT Speed Convertible is also planned and should deliver more than the outgoing model’s 633 hp. The sole transmission is expected to be an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive should also be fitted as standard.

(Nothing is known about the Continental GT Convertible’s interior.)

Possible On Sale Date

The new Continental GT coupe is expected on the market next year as a 2018 model. The convertible should arrive around the same time.
