Unveiling a new luxury convertible or coupe at the Detroit Motor Show is all fine and dandy, but the place that for LED lights and custom leather interiors is not Motown. That’s why Bentley has brought both the retouched Continental GTC convertible and the Mulsanne saloon closer to where the real money is, the 2012 Qatar International Motor Show in Doha.
The GTC convertible sports a “spacious and sumptuous hand-crafted cabin, with soft-touch leather hides, an extensive range of wood veneers”, plus the 6.0-liter W12, which now packs 575 horsepower. As for the Mulsanne, that sure to become Bentley’s spearhead in the fight to capture Maybach’s uber-rich customers.

“We are delighted to be here in Qatar with the new GTC. It has always been the most emotional model in the Continental range and a showcase for Bentley design. With its tailored soft top, the GTC is a pure British convertible true to those classic Bentleys of the past. However, the technology, performance and overall design excellence invested in this model means that we are now writing a new chapter for the Bentley convertible driver,” says Alasdair Stewart, Member of the Board for Sales and Marketing, Bentley Motors.
