2010 Bentley Continental GTC Speed Base AWD 2dr Convertible
Bentley's are world-renown for performance magically mated with top-class elegance. This GTC is no exception. Offered here is a beautifully crafted 2010 Bentley GTC Speed for consideration. The car has less than 18,000 miles and originally hails from Palm Beach, Florida. Everything about this car is luxury to its finest degree, down to the hand-stitched leather seats and an exotic wood dashboard that Bentley keeps an exact replica at the factory in case of any damage to the one installed in the car. The GTC Speed is a more sporting version of the “entry level” Bentley convertible, just like the Speed models of the 1920s were higher-performance variants of cars such as the 3-liter and the 6 1/2-liter. Outwardly, it's distinguished from a Continental GTC by striking 20-inch wheels, a trunklid lip spoiler, and a matte-finish grille. Inside, you'll find a three-spoke sport steering wheel, a knurled-chrome and leather shift lever, drilled alloy pedals, and diamond quilting on the leather that adorns the seats, rear quarter-panels, and door pads. As you'd expect, the cabin is gorgeous. The Alcantara-lined cloth top, which folds in 25 seconds and doesn't impinge on trunk space like a folding hardtop, is similarly chic.It is powered by a twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 48-valve W-12 600hp engine with aluminum block and heads, and port fuel injection. The transmission is superb, whether one opts to use it in automatic or manual mode, with precise, beautifully smooth shifts. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the GTC Speed is the solidity of the convertible shell. Brian Gush, Bentley's director of chassis, powertrain, and motorsports, says this allows the automaker to fit relatively soft springs. The ride, considering that the car rolls on 20-inch tires, is remarkably supple in the adjustable suspension's more-comfort-oriented settings. Body control in the most sporting tuning is pretty impressive, too. The car drives smaller than it is, always a reflection of a well-developed chassis.Impressive is an understatement. This is an incredible vehicle at a very reasonable price, being that the MSRP is $237k. Also, you don't see many of these GTC's in the Graphite paint over a Portland interior - classy combination.
