The Bentley Continental GTC is a perfect California car. It’s stylist, it’s beautiful, and it’s a convertible. The GTC at South OC Cars and Coffee was a prime example. Done in a pearl white exterior with a scarlet red leather interior, the Continental GTC tells the world you’re successful and tasteful.
The Continental GTC captures the essence of the Continental range, combining thrilling performance and exquisite craftsmanship with aplomb. As the quintessential convertible grand tourer, it is a stunning example of British automotive design, inside and out.
With enough space to seat four adults – and room for their luggage in the boot – it is a car in which long journeys pass by blissfully. With its four-layer fabric roof closed, you could be forgiven for thinking you are sealed inside a hard-top coupé. Ultimately, however, this is a car that comes into its own with the top down – certainly the most appropriate way to hear its V8 engine roar.
Impossibly smooth yet immensely powerful, the twin-turbocharged, 4.0 litre V8 engine can deliver 542 bhp and 568 lb-ft of torque, resulting in acceleration from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 198 mph. However, you may want to put the top up if you plan to go that fast.
