Upon its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the redesigned, refreshed Bentley Continental GT coupe represented a clear statement that the breakout success the revitalized British brand had with their bestselling first-generation GT was no fluke. Not standing by idly, the next debut occurred the following year at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with the release of the Continental GTC convertible. The production Continental GTC debuted in 2012; its 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W-12 engine produced 15 horsepower more than the previous engine, generating 567 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. As with all Continental models after 2006, assembly was finished by hand at the Bentley facilities in Crewe, England.
This example left the factory in June 2013 and was first sold in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It is finished in Black, with a two-tone Parchment and Piano Black interior and a black, power-operated soft-top. It was optioned with the desirable Mulliner Driving Specification (Polished Wheel), which featured indented hide seats, door panels and rear quarter panels, jewel fuel-filler cap, drilled alloy sport foot pedals, knurled gear lever, embroidered Bentley emblems in the headrests, and stunning 21-inch, two-piece, five-spoke polished alloy wheels. The front seat massage and ventilation system only increases this car’s comfort. The Piano Black dashboard’s centerpiece is the Breitling clock, redesigned for the 2012 model year.
With less than 16,000 miles showing on the odometer at cataloguing time, this well-specified, low-mileage Continental GTC includes the factory windscreen to reduce wind buffeting during top-down motoring, and a Bentley trickle charger.
