With the Continental Convertible, you are getting the best of both worlds, with looks befitting of English royalty and the performance to show most supercars a clean pair of heels.

Bespoke quality is the theme here and with it being a convertible, just adds that extra bit of exclusivity to admirers come rain or shine.

Not just a pretty face

The cabin is littered with hand-crafted quality where ever you look. It features a diamond-knurled rotary knobs and a triple-rotating display instrument in the dashboard.

If the superb overall craftsmanship doesn't take your breath away then its performance figures definitely will. Its 6.0 litre, 12-cylinder engine produces an eye-watering 467kW and races to the 100km/h mark in a mere 3.8 seconds.

Bentley also has a rich racing history, most notably winning the lucrative 24 Hour of Le Mans race on six occasions.
