The Bentley Continental made its name over the years for its strong combination of luxury, performance, and uniqueness. It is one of the most desirable cars in the world, that’s why all eyes are on it when the second generation of this car came out at the 2010 Frankfurt Auto Show. The 2012 Bentley Continental GTC picks up where the popular 4 seater convertible left off. It has the same styling cues from its GT (the coupe version) sibling, minus the roof, of course.

Interior & Exterior
It is constructed by Bentley engineers by providing maximum quality as its top priority. The second generation GTC is more muscular in appearance than the model it replaced, thanks to a more aggressive stance and sharper lines. New 21 inch wheels further accentuates this car’s shift to becoming a sportier convertible, as well as increasing track, improving the potential of better handling.
The handcrafted interior is more spacious and luxurious. The combination of leather, wood and metal all exude quality that is very well sorted out. In addition, buyers can customize the interior according to their tastes, and Bentley’s expert craftspeople will do it for them.
When it comes to performance, it is also a leap forward from the first generation. It is still equipped with the same W12 turbocharged engine, but output is increased to 567 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque. Coupled with a transmission capable of faster gear changes, it makes the Continental GTC’s performance all the more compelling.
