In 2024, Bentley introduced the worthy successor of its Continental GTC Speed model, a drop-top Grand Tourer that was completely redesigned from the ground up, together with its sibling, the GT Speed.

The British car manufacturer didn’t want to make its customers wait for the convertible or the Continental coupe version. Instead, it decided to make them wonder which one of them they should get... first. Both vehicles shared the same marvelous engineered drivetrain that replaced the previous twin-turbocharged W12 engine from the Continental’s GT third generation. Instead of that monster powerplant, the automaker used a brand new four-liter bi-turbo one helped by an electric motor. The result was staggering in terms of performance, fuel efficiency, and emissions. Bentley knew that its customers might not be very conquered by the fact that the vehicle was “green,” but it found a way to provide them with one that could also offer them all the other amenities they requested. Furthermore, thanks to the new plug-in hybrid system, the elegant convertible boasted a 50/50 weight distribution, which only added more charm to the 2025 Bentley Continental GTC Speed.

While at first sight, it looked like a refreshed version of the previous generation of this nameplate, the car was utterly new. Its front fascia featured two round headlights, something that no Bentley had ever since the 1959 S2 model. These LED headlamps also integrated one end of the daytime running light slats that doubled as turn signals. Between them, Bentley installed its famous broad grille adorned by a mesh with a diamond pattern. Lower, on the apron, the car manufacturer placed a broad trapezoidal air intake flanked by vertical triangular vents for the air curtains.

From its profile, the muscular look of the vehicle started with curved, almost organic lines. The car relied on a set of standard 22-inch alloy wheels, adding a distinct appeal to the drop-top Grand Tourer. The raked windshield was supported by thick A-pillars, which served as safety arches as well. Bentley didn’t fall for the trend with flush door handles, understanding its customers’ preference for grab-handles. To further emphasize the car’s sporty character, the automaker installed wider rear quarter panels with shoulders-like shapes over the fat tires. Out back, the oval-shaped taillights had a diamond-like pattern inside and sported horizontal LED stripes for the brakes and blinkers. Lower, under the bumper, Bentley placed triangular exhausts with shaved corners on the sides, and those weren’t fake.

Inside, the high level of craftsmanship followed the car manufacturer’s standards. Fronting the driver was a digital instrument panel that revealed most of the information needed by the one behind the wheel at all times. In addition, atop the center stack, Bentley placed its already famous rotating element that could show three analog dials, the navigation display, or the same trim as the rest of the dashboard. Customers could choose between a silver satin or a shiny black finish for the dashboard, while the center console was adorned by piano-black elements. The bolstered front seats promised that their occupants wouldn’t slide away during high-speed cornering maneuvers. At the same time, in the back, two passengers couldn’t sit comfortably due to the lack of legroom. Bentley chose to push the bench seat forward to make room for the retractable rag top.

However, the most attractive part of the car was under its skin. The 2025 Bentley Continental GTC Speed was powered by a four-liter twin-turbo V8 gasoline engine paired with an electric motor. Both sent their oomph in all corners via an eight-speed automatic (dual-clutch) gearbox. The total output of this setup resulted in 778 PS (771 hp) and 1,000 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque.
