What is it? The Bentley Continental GT coupe was given a full refresh last year with a new look, and a full suite of technical improvements.
Now it's the turn of the open-top GTC version to get the same treatment. So, the twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12's power and flexibility have been upped a little and the standard six-speed auto 'box has also been tinkered with for faster gearchanges.
It also gets the same suspension and steering changes to sharpen up the drive, and the four-wheel-drive system has also been improved to add to the effect. Weight has also dropped, making the GTC quicker and more fuel-efficient than its predecessor.
Naturally, it also includes the same interior changes as the coupe. So there's a new-look dash, better seats and a vastly improved infotainment system. There are additional changes that are specific to the GTC. These include enhanced body stiffness, designed to eradicate the wobble and shake you sometimes get with cabrios.
There's also more room in the back than in the outgoing version, a better insulated cloth hood and a 'neck warmer' to keep the chill out when you've got the roof down.
What's it like to drive? It isn't as good to drive as the GT, but it comes admirably close. At speeds up to 30mph it isn't as adept at soaking up bumps and you can detect some shimmies through the steering wheel over larger scars.
Get above that though and it's remarkably supple, quiet and poised for such a big heavy soft-top, in any of the four electronic chassis settings.
It's fast, too. Even with a light throttle there's more than enough flexibility from the 6.0-litre to pile on speed without drama.
Floor it and it's supercar swift and you also get rewarded with a well judged engine note. It's loud and sonorous enough to let you know what's under the bonnet, but always restrained and never harsh.
Roof-up refinement is extremely impressive. It's just as quiet as in the coupe at all bar huge speeds.
Just like the coupe, though, it isn't agile. Yes, the steering and the chassis changes have done enough to improve things a bit, but the Bentley doesn't feel totally at ease being thrown around too quickly.
That said, it does feel extremely stable and composed, which is far more of a virtue for this sort of car.
