Bentley added a lot of structural reinforcement to keep the luxury convertible as stiff as the coupe. That means the GT Speed Convertible tips the scales at 5,500 lbs, but with 590 lb-ft of torque on tap, it still reaches 60 mph from a standstill in 4.1 seconds ? just one tenth behind the coupe version.
The new Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible will make its public debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 14, after which Bentley dealers around the world will begin taking orders from interested customers. Pricing has yet to be announced, but the model it replaces retailed for $236,000.
