Described rather poetically in the enthusiastic press notes as a car that can “tackle sun-drenched boulevard or snowy alpine pass”, this brand new Bentley is billed as the fastest four-seat convertible on the market today.

The latest Continental GT Speed Convertible, revealed here ahead of its official debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit later this month, boasts a top speed of 202 mph fueled by the car’s 6.0-liter W12 engine, which also ekes out an impressive 616 brake horsepower. Zero to 60 mph is managed in a hairwhipping 4.1 seconds.

The Continental GT Speed Convertible sits on 21-inch wheels and is chock-full of the plush creature comforts demanded of a Bentley: gleaming wood veneers, diamond-quilted leather upholstery, even a neck warmer for open-air driving on chilly nights.

Commenting on the new Bentley beauty, Chairman and Chief Executive Dr Wolfgang Schreiber said: “The new GT Speed Convertible will appeal to drivers who seek unrivalled levels of luxury and refinement. It is designed for those who accept no compromise.” Sounds like the Men’s Folio gent to us!
