Nothing says optimism like a drop top, so there's reason to have hope as Bentley unveils the Continental GT Speed convertible, which it will officially unveil this month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
For hedonists, Bentley throws a lot into this car. The engine is a 616-horsepower twin-turbocharged 6-liter 12-cylinder monster coupled to an eight-speed transmission.
It's good for a top speed of 202 m.p.h., yet comes billed as being 15% more fuel efficient than the one in the outgoing model.
"The new GT Speed convertible will appeal to drivers who seek the sensory thrills of the world's fastest four-seat soft-top and the practicality of a year-round grand tourer," Bentley CEO Wolfgang Schreiber tells the Detroit Free Press
