With overnight stops at the stylish W Hotel in Scottsdale, the historic El Tovar Lodge on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and the magnificent Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas, there was ample time to allow the GT Speed Convertible room to stretch its shapely legs on this road trip. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a Sport mode supplying sharper throttle response, and a deeper exhaust note underscore the convertible’s visceral capabilities, layered in glove-soft quilted leather set off by Bentley’s signature knurled detailing and a variety of bespoke options. In another nod to the marque’s racing prowess, a Dark Tint Aluminum “engine spin” finish that's inspired by the dashboards of the Le Mans-winning Bentley autos of the 1920s is available.
Other interior options include a full range of fine wood veneers, a satin-finish Carbon Fiber dashboard and center console, seventeen shades of leather, two-tone upholstery, and contrast stitching. Audiophiles can also opt for the Naim for Bentley sound system, featuring custom-built speakers and eight individual Digital Sounds Processing modes. If one of over a hundred exterior paint colors doesn’t suit your specifications, Bentley’s bespoke department will gladly help you create a custom hue. Carbon fiber door mirror cowls and a rear spoiler are complimentary while the optional Mulliner Styling Specification adds more carbon fiber detailing for supercar looks.
