Detroit motor show: misses - 3. Bentley GTC Speed Convertible
However, if the thought of driving outrageously fast while sat in luxurious surroundings doesn't float your boat, then perhaps you also wondered what the Bentley GTC Convertible Speed was all about.
The Speed has 600bhp, which is 48bhp more than the standard car. That means it can hit 200mph with the roof up, and 195mph with it down. It takes 4.5sec to travel from 0-60mph – 0.3sec quicker than the standard model.
The Speed also has lowered and modified suspension to improve the handling, while the stability control system has a Dynamic setting, which cuts in later and allows the driver to exploit the engine to the full
The standard car also features a new stability control mode, called Sport Traction, which improves handling on loose surfaces.
The standard car costs £129,700, benefiting from the recent VAT cut to be £2800 less than the previous model. The GTC Speed costs £146,100.
