Bentley Continental GTC Convertible and the Speed

The 2010 Continental GTC is a 2-door, 4-passenger luxury convertible, available in two trims, the Convertible and the Speed. Upon introduction, the Convertible is equipped with a standard 6.0-liter, W12, 552-horsepower, turbo engine that achieves 10-mpg in the city and 17-mpg on the highway. The Speed is equipped with a standard 6.0-liter, W12, 600-horsepower, turbo engine that achieves 10-mpg in the city and 17-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard on both trims.

Bentley's 2010 Continental GTC Speed belongs to that rare class of vehicles to which the standard array of automotive superlatives simply does not apply. After all, how can one adequately convey the sensation of accelerating a 5500-pound, leather-clad convertible from rest to 60 mph in a mere 4.5 seconds? Of hitting 195 mph with the top down. Of returning to a standstill via the world's largest production automobile brakes-eight-piston calipers and 16.5-inch carbon-ceramic discs?

Though essentially a performance variant of the Continental GTC convertible, the Speed is not some stripped-down racer. Sure it has drilled aluminum pedals, but there's no stereo delete option here. Bentley went the other direction and serves up an 1100-watt Naim audio system -- the most powerful available in any production car. The knurled-chrome and leather-paneled gearshift lever of the six-speed ZF transmission further indicate a focus on fine motoring as well as high performance. So do the turned aluminum fascias and use of 12 quilted cowhides to line the sumptuous four-passenger cocoon.

With communicative steering and four-way-adjustable air suspension, this all-wheel-drive heavyweight ducks and weaves like the World's Greatest. Even when driven hard, understeer has been suppressed; it surfaces only in moments of extreme driver foolishness before being quashed by the deftly tuned ESP.
Still need an easy summary of how the GTC Speed feels? Ultra-smooth, sinfully rich, and even more delectable when whipped. Kinda like, well, you know.
