Bentley Continental GTC

It is only appropriate that there be a convertible version of the tremendously popular Continental GT grand tourer. That is precisely where the Continental GTC comes into play. The GT was released in 2004, and the stylish convertible GTC became available in 2006. The GTC is one of only two current Bentley convertibles. The other option is the Azure, which costs about $100,000 more. That however is not to say that the GTC is in the range of affordable to most automotive buyers. Nevertheless, the new Continental models are priced to attract a much wider audience than Bentley has ever sought before, but the average car buyer still may have a difficult time distinguishing the Continental from a $300,000 Bentley. You may be wondering how Bentley was able to create this vehicle at a more inviting sticker price. The answer lies in the engineering. Previous, and very expensive models, such as the Continentals were built on Rolls Royce platforms, but the new GT and GTC use VW's D-Platform. This same foundation is also used for the Audi A8 and the Volkswagen Phaeton – both of which are also available at a much lower price than the standard Bentley automobiles. The Continental GTC does not however reach the same level of preposterous luxury as the Azure, but its handcrafted interior is equipped with just about every standard feature imaginable. The driver is guaranteed to be pleased unless they are only accustomed to the luxury offered by the Azure. While the GTC is priced well above most European luxury coupes, many reviewers are still touting it as a great value. Most notable, what is located under the hood will further ensure buyers that they are making a wise investment. The GTC is powered by a revolutionary 6.0 liter W-12 engine that is improved by two Borg-Warner superchargers. The total output is 552 horsepower and one of the most unique features is the flat torque curve.
