2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible First Review



If allowed to drive just one vehicle for the rest of our lives, the 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible would likely be at the top of our short list. Of course, there are countless notable vehicles in showrooms these days (take a look at our 2019 Best Buy Awards for a start), but if emotional satisfaction and undiluted driving bliss was at the top of our list we’d look past all of the stylish luxury crossovers, rugged 4-wheel drive trucks, and wickedly fast exotic sports cars and grab the chrome key fob to the gorgeous all-new drop-top Bentley.
Choosing a quarter-million-dollar vehicle as our “forever car” may sound preposterous, but only to those who haven’t driven it. But we have, and this masterpiece of craftsmanship, engineering, and technology has just about everything going for it -- assuming you can afford its lofty cost of entry. 
Tremendous amounts of power from the twin-turbo W12, a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system, and a suspension system that all but eliminates body roll means the convertible can be driven at absurd levels of speed effortlessly. ...

How much does the Bentley Continental GT Convertible cost?
Base price of the 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible is $236,100 (destination and gas guzzler charges have not been announced). However, most owners spend a considerably greater amount courtesy of Bentley’s Mulliner program, which allows the discerning shopper to specify unique veneers, hides, stitching, and paints for the ultimate bespoke experience -- if a discerning buyer can dream it, Bentley can make it.
A new lightweight platform with innovative sculpted body panels 
The third-generation Continental GT Convertible shares architecture with the Porsche Panamera (it’s the Volkswagen Group MSB platform). That’s a good thing, as the new Bentley boasts an extended wheelbase (for a smoother ride) and better proportions (the front axle sits 5.3 inches more forward of the dashboard), yet its curb weight has dropped. Credit the loss of mass to an aluminum-intensive construction that includes lightweight alloy body panels crafted with an innovative Super Form -- it allows the metal to be bent into sharp, visually complex, body lines. And the new bodywork doesn’t just impress the eyes. It also cheats the wind. According to the automaker, the Bentley has a .29 coefficient of drag, which is notably low for a convertible.
