Bentley Continental GTC V8 S: yellow copy
The Bentley Continental GT is a grand tourer manufactured and marketed by British automaker Bentley Motors since 2003. It was the first car released by Bentley under Volkswagen AG management, after the company’s acquisition in 1998, and the first Bentley to employ mass production manufacturing techniques.
The convertible version of the Continental GT, the Continental GTC, was first presented in September 2005, and was introduced to several world markets in the autumn of 2006. The roof is produced by Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany.
The GTC uses identical powertrain detail as the GT, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0.0 to 62.1 mph) in 5.1 seconds. With the roof up, it can reach a top speed of 314 km/h (195.1 mph), though with the roof down top speed drops to 305 km/h (189.5 mph).
The vehicle was unveiled at the 2006 New York International Auto Show, followed by the C. de Salamanca in Seville (Spain). The vehicle went on sale in late 2006.
