2012 Bentley Continental GTC Promo Video Is Serene

Launched at the International Automobile Exhibition in Frankfurt, the new Continental GTC is being described as “Distinctive. Sensuous. Exquisite. Exhilarating. Dynamic. Inspired.”

To prove it’s all that, the launch video mixes a relaxed attitude with plenty of on-the-road activities that make you just want to fill your car with leather and find de most beautiful girl in Monaco just to cruise with her for hours.

Unfortunately, you can’t really do that, because the power for this convertible comes from a 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine coupled with a QuickShift transmission, delivering 575 horsepower and 700Nm (516 lb.ft.) of maximum torque. This means you’ll be constantly invite to see just how fast you can go, and where the limit of your four-wheel drive system’s grip is.

We’d also mention that it will cost you €170,000 if you live in Europe, $212,800 if you reside in the States, and £149,350 if Sterling is your currency.
