The Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible which will be unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show is described to be a “performance flagship convertible”. The Brit automaker claims it to be the world’s fastest four-seat convertible.

 

At 2900kg, the Continental GT Speed Convertible weighs 150kg more than the Speed Coupe, which drops its top speed by 5km/h compared to the Coupe. Having said that it still is the fastest four-seat convertible in the world with a top speed of 325km/h! Also, despite the additional weight, it is 15 per cent more fuel efficient than the Speed Coupe. 

 

Under the hood, both cars share the same 6-litre, twin-turbocharged, 48-valve, W12 engine that pumps 625PS of power and 800Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox with Quickshift and Blockshifting features. A permanent all-wheel-drive with a 40:60 weight distribution provides optimum traction and power in all road conditions.
