2012 Bentley Continental GTC (2011 Frankfurt Auto Show)
THE NEW BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GTC
▪ Bold, contemporary, sculpted design employing advanced production technology.
▪ Sensuous, luxurious, hand-crafted cabin with class-leading infotainment.
▪ Coupe-like refinement with unrivalled comfort and practicality.
▪ More powerful 6.0-litre W12 engine with FlexFuel capability, delivering exhilarating performance.
▪ Uprated chassis for a more dynamic and engaging open-top driving experience.
(Frankfurt 12 September, 2011) Taking cues from its GT coupe sibling launched last year, the new Continental GTC builds on the highly successful foundation of the previous cabriolet, which premiered in 2006. Bentley's design and engineering teams have improved virtually every aspect of the iconic convertible with an uncompromising focus on quality.
While the first Continental GTC was elegant and understated, the sharper radii and assertive stance of the new model delivers a more contemporary and muscular presence. Advanced manufacturing techniques produce aluminium front wings without the need for seams or welds creating the look and feel of a coachbuilt car. Twenty-inch wheels are now standard with three styles of 21-inch wheel, a first for GTC, available as an option, reinforcing the distinctive, sporting stance of the new Bentley.
The four-seater luxury convertible features a new, even more spacious and sumptuous hand-crafted cabin, with soft-touch leather hides, an extensive range of wood veneers, cool-touch metals and deep-pile carpets. There are 17 standard soft-touch leather hide colours with six colour split combinations, complemented by a range of seven veneers, all produced by Bentley's talented craftsmen and women.
The GTC's renowned coupe-like refinement is also enhanced. The tailored, multi-layered fabric hood is complemented by acoustic glass and under-body panels, for optimum noise isolation.
Superb everyday practicality for a luxury convertible was a hallmark of the original GTC and much valued by its customers. The cabin of the new GTC is now even more practical, with additional rear legroom, new storage solutions and innovative features such as touch-screen infotainment, automatic seat-belt presenters and a Bentley-designed Neck Warmer for comfortable roof-down motoring whatever the temperature.
A wider track, front and rear, sharper steering and retuned suspension provide a more exhilarating and class-leading drive. Bentley's advanced all-wheel drive system features a new 40:60 rear torque bias (compared with 50:50 of the original GTC) minimising understeer during hard cornering and allowing the spirited driver to manage the car's line and balance via precise throttle control.
This compelling dynamic package is combined with a more powerful 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine as well as a new QuickShift transmission enabling faster gear changes than ever before. Power output is raised from 560PS to 575PS (567bhp/423kW) and the famed Bentley 'wave of torque' has been increased by a further 50Nm to 700Nm (516lb ft).
"The GTC has always been the most emotional model in the Continental range and a showcase for Bentley design. With its tailored soft top, the GTC is a pure British convertible true to those classic Bentleys of the past. However, the technology, performance and overall design excellence invested in this model means that we are now writing a new chapter for the Bentley convertible driver."
Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors.
The Bentley Continental GTC is now available to order and first customer deliveries will begin in late 2011.

2013 Bentley Continental GTC V8 Convertible
Bentley has updated its Continental GT for the upcoming 2013 model year,
showing off the auto makers new focus on efficient power and refined
luxury. The 2013 Bentley Continental GT V8 ditches the W12 engine of the
last model for a twin-turbocharged V8
that pushes comparable power. This 500 hp system will race to 60 mph in
under five seconds, on its way to a top speed of nearly 180 mph. With four
less cylinders than 2011′s W12 Continental, Bentley has delivered an
increase in fuel economy while maintaining a similar range of performance
statistics that Bentley buyers will desire.
With the new Continental GT, Bentley went even further in its aims to
provide efficiency. The new model features a cylinder deactivation system
which will use only four cylinders when carrying light loads at moderate
speeds. This keeps half of the V8 from burning any fuel unless it is
needed for acceleration. You wouldn't expect a luxury car maker to provide
such progressive green options, nor would you expect a luxury buyer to
worry about the extra savings at the pump. But for those buyers with a
conscience or a willingness to keep costs low, this new, smarter Bentley is
a serious upgrade.
The 2013 Bentley Continental GT V8 will begin rolling out of the factory
late in 2012. The price tag is not yet finalized, but a buyer could expect
to pay slightly less than $200,000 for a GT V8 of their own. [via
0-60mph should thus take less than 5.0 seconds but the upside is that it
will have 40 percent fewer emissions.Cylinder deactivation technology is
the key to the engine's frugality, as it allows the V8 to run on four
cylinders at low speeds. Special hydraulic engine mounts ensures the change
between four and eight cylinders is imperceptible by compensating for the
different resonances of the V4 and V8 modes.Direct injection technology,
thermal management, low friction bearings, brake energy regeneration and
special turbocharger packaging for high
efficiency make up other fuel saving features.
The Bentley V8's also have a new ZF-sourced close-ration eight-speed
automatic transmission, designed to help Boost acceleration and reduce emissions.Aside
from the lightweight convertible roof, there's nothing to distinguish the
GTC V8 from the GT V8 hardtop. Both are adorned with 'B' emblems and a
black gloss grille, setting it apart from the larger powerplant Bentley,
and feature a unique center console that separates driver from front
passenger and unique wheel patterns.
