2012 Bentley Continental GTC – Uncompromising Focus On Quality

Taking cues from its Continental GT coupe sibling launched in 2010, the 2012 Bentley Continental GTC builds on the highly successful foundation of the previous cabriolet, which premiered in 2006.Bentley‘s designer and engineer have improved virtually every aspect of the iconic convertible with an uncompromising focus on quality.

While the first Continental GTC was elegant and understated, the sharper radii and assertive stance of the 2012 Bentley Continental GTC delivers a more contemporary and muscular presence. Advanced manufacturing techniques creates aluminium front wings without the need for seams or welds creating the look and feel of a coachbuilt car. 20-inch wheels are now standard with three styles of 21-inch wheel, a first for Bentley Continental GTC, available as an option, reinforcing the distinctive, sporting stance of the 2012 Bentley Continental GTC.

The 4-seater luxury convertible features a new spacious and sumptuous hand-crafted cabin, with soft-touch leather hides, an extensive range of wood veneers, cool-touch metals and deep-pile carpets. There are 17 standard soft-touch leather hide colours with six colour split combinations, complemented by a range of seven veneers, all produced by Bentley’s talented craftsmen and women.

The new 2012 Bentley Continental GTC comes with an aggressive front fascia, new headlights and a vented hood. The back of the Bentley also got tweaked with the addition of a slimmer taillights, trunk-mounted spoiler, and a revised exhaust system.

The luxury sportster also benefits from an increase in output from its 6.0-liter W12 engine, a fact that should make fans of the model smile from ear to ear.

The design of the new Bentley Continental GTC lends itself to certain styling cues from the GT coupe version that was launched last year.

The sharp power lines and more sculpted body of the model come as a result of advanced production techniques, such as aluminum Super Forming. The sporty and luxurious tone of the 2012 Bentley Continental GTC is highlighted by unique jeweled headlamps combined with LED daytime running lights, as well as the more upright matrix radiator grille and the new ‘double horseshow’ rear profile that Bentley first unveiled on their luxury flagship sedan, the Mulsanne. Another first for the Bentley Continental GTC is the set of 20 inch wheels with a pair of 21inch variants serving as added options to further encompass the sporting stance of the luxury convertible.

With this improvisation, Bentley’s uncompromising focus on quality is no more evident than in the clean and high-end design of the Continental GTC.
