    Bentley Continental GTC () review | CAR Magazine

    Yup, it's the open top Continental, the GTC. A Crewe cut was always part of the GT model family, even if the cabrio has required some thorough engineering to create. Losing the coupe's roof required additional strengthening to sills, cross-braces for the front and rear suspension, and beefed-up A-pillars to stop the body from flexing. And the rear suspension had to be completely redesigned to lower the shock absorber mounts by mm.

    The penalty is a kg weight gain, over the already lardy GT coupe. And there's been no upgrade to the engine, not that the twin-turbo W12 was lacking urge. Perhaps the GT coupe is a little too familiar on our roads or it could be the footballer associations, but the GTC definitely has an added touch of class.

    How long that will last when it becomes the WAG's default choice of flash car remains to be seen. However, there's no doubting the GTC is a handsome car, with real presence.

    As for the roof, it looks good when it's up, and it folds away in a laconic, unflustered fashion. Bentley says it could have made the roof fold away quicker, but that would have been ungainly and there's nothing wrong with it taking 25 seconds instead of Bentley's official line is that the customer preferred the 'classier' fabric option. It helps that a fabric roof is easier to package into a smaller space. Regardless of reasons, the fabric hood works a treat and seals out the weather and the sounds of the outside world very well.

    Gabbling away to your passenger is no problem all the way up to and beyond the legal limit. The only noise we noticed was a little wind whistle from where the front and rear windows join the roof. If you're sitting up front, there's no great problem with the wind rushing past. At 70mph, we could easily conduct a civil conversation with our front seat passenger and neither of us finished the journey with hair resembling Boris Johnson's on a seaside outing.

    It's not so good for those in the rear, but then the seats are only really big enough for children, so they'll either love it or travel separately.

    Bentley has tested the GTC with the roof down and found that it's 5mph down on the mph top speed recorded with the roof up. However, they did find that buffeting for those in the rear seats ceases to be a problem above mph as the air pressure shifts further behind the car. The same engineers also discovered mph wind blast is enough to rip your arm off, so it's not recommended that you stick an arm outside of the cockpit at such speeds. No word if this was discovered in the wind tunnel or on the M6.

    Considering the GTC squashes the scales with its kg frame, it's all the more impressive that it shifts from mph in 4. What's even more stirring is the way this British leviathan overtakes with breezy nonchalance. Plant your foot and the six-speed auto takes very little time to drop a gear or three before conspiring with the W12 engine to propel you forward with the utmost haste.

    When you do have to moderate the behaviour of your right foot, the W12 surprises with its crackly exhaust note. It's all very Spitfires at dawn. Not a bit of it. The GT coupe is a tidy handler to begin with and the GTC has all that extra stiffening to keep it from bucking and flexing. In fact, we reckon the GTC is the best handling and best riding of the three Bentley models based on this platform.
