British luxury car manufacturer - Bentley launched the convertible version of its Continental GT, by the name of GTC, in India in 2007. The convertible has been imported to India from the United Kingdom, as a Completely Built Unit (CBU). The richly-textured triple-layer soft top of Continental GTC is operated electro-hydraulically. Plush interiors and dashing exteriors, together, provide an enthralling experience to the occupants of Continental GTC. When the roof is open, it provides the thrill of a sports car and when it is closed, you will get a luxurious feeling of riding in a coupe.

The petrol-driven Bentley Continental GTC is powered by 6L, W12, DOHC engine, which pumps out a maximum power of 552 hp @ 6100 rpm and a peak torque of 650 Nm @ 1600 rpm. The sedan accelerates from 0-100 kmph in just 5.1 seconds and delivers a top speed of 312 km/h. It is coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission that ensures seamless gearshifts and sends power to all the four wheels effectively.

Design And Comfort
Other than the electro-hydraulically operated soft-top roof, Bentley Continental GTC closely resembles the Continental GT coupe in terms of its external appearance. The frontage of the car is characterized by a short hood and a blunt nose. The twin bi-Xenon headlamps and rear LED tail lights accentuate the muscular look of its exteriors. The heated front seats come with an optional lumbar support. The center arm rest and headrest ensure comfort for the rear seat passengers. Four people can comfortably fit into this two-door convertible.

The sporty exteriors of Bentley Continental GTC are well complemented by plush interiors. Natural wood veneers and hand-crafted leather upholstery beautify the interiors of the convertible. The cabin gets polished and satin metal accents. Automatic Climate Control, Cruise Control and Air Quality Control are among the standard features of the car. The multi-function steering wheel is leather wrapped, while the central console and dash get sleek wooden finish.

Ride And Handling
The massive power generated under the hood of Bentley Continental GTC is transferred effectively, thanks to the all-wheel drive system of the car. Driving and riding comfort is further enhanced by the sophisticated stability control and braking systems. The convertible has a strong on-road presence and is agile, in terms of handling.
