The all-new Bentley Continental GT Convertible redefines luxury grand touring.  Now you can own one of these magnificent vehicles customized to your exacting specifications. Travel to England and have a personal consultation with the Bentley design team for selection of the specific features, finishes and appointments you prefer. Choose from 17 exterior paint colors and a myriad of interior options.

When you commission your Bentley in person in February, you will discover exactly what craftsmanship means. A personal host will tailor every detail of your visit to your time, tastes and interests, right down to selecting the color of thread used to cross-stitch the interior you desire. Seeing the way your car is made will only accentuate the pleasure of owning it.
Bentley’s tradition of craftsmanship is unlike any other in the automotive industry. It is the result of the devotion of the highly skilled people who work at the Bentley factory in Crewe – not just to the creation of the world’s finest cars but also to passing their skills on to the next generation.

The “Home of Bentley” experience provides the opportunity to experience Bentley firsthand and understand what passion and care goes into making every vehicle and what Bentley stands for. A factory tour will allow you to experience the spirit of Bentley: meet the artisans that build the cars and learn about the history, brand and traditional handcraftsmanship that is the lifeblood of the Crewe factory.

You will be hosted personally by a team of tour guides with over 100 years of combined experience at Crewe. The tour will be tailored to your individual interests and will include a tour through the factory facilities, showrooms and the lineage exhibition area.

Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Britain, your new Bentley GT Convertible will combine spirited, focused performance with handcrafted luxury and cutting-edge technology. With a step-change in technology and a truly stunning design language, the new Continental GT Convertible is unmatched in its class. This Bentley is the quintessential grand tourer – phenomenally powerful, beautifully designed and exquisitely crafted.

The muscular exterior design, created using revolutionary technology, results in a lightweight, yet stiff body. The engine is positioned further back to improve weight distribution, resulting in a driver-focused, dynamic performance.

An advanced, fully digital, driver-focused instrument panel and Bentley Rotating Display are among the suite of innovations. The latter features an impressive touchscreen housed in a three-sided unit, which revolves the veneer to reveal the touchscreen as well as three elegant analogue dials.

A new, technically advanced adaptive chassis uses Bentley’s intelligent Dynamic Ride System to ensure a responsive ride, exceptional handling and refinement in all road conditions. The system controls ride comfort, cushioning passengers from excessive movement as well as making the car feel effortlessly precise.

With all this excitement over your new ride, you’ll need a place to relax and unwind. So, you’ll stay at The Connaught Hotel for three nights of luxurious accommodations. In this place where past and present come together with effortless elegance, experience contemporary comfort paired with design elements evoking the building’s classical heritage. Like your new Bentley, The Connaught reflects your discerning taste and is conveniently sited in the heart of Mayfair.

Put your convertible roof down…and cross the bidding finish line a winner!
