Bentley Continental GT Convertible rivals

With coupé and saloon versions of the Continental launched in 2003 and 2005 respectively, it was inevitable that Bentley would chop the top from the Continental to make a convertible. The GTC uses the same chassis as the GT coupé, but with the addition of the folding roof mechanism and extra bracing to replace the lost strength, it weighs more. Even at 2.5 tonnes though, the GTC provides near supercar performance thanks to its twin turbo 12-cylinder engine which it shares, together with the four-wheel drive system, with its siblings.

From 2009 the weight became less of an issue for the high-performance Speed version - supposedly capable of 195mph with the roof down!
