Bentley Continental GTC - £30k plus: Best cheap convertibles
GTC (2007/07 reg, 43k miles)
The Continental GTC is one of the world’s fastest four-seater convertibles, and it’s also one of the most luxurious. It first appeared in 2006, powered by the same huge 6.0-litre W12 as the standard Continental GT, so the extra weight of the folding fabric top hardly troubled the 552bhp unit.
If you’re on a track or derestricted autobahn, Bentley claims the GTC has a top speed of 189mph with the roof down, although how your hearing and hairstyle will cope with the noise and wind at speed is anybody’s guess. With the roof up, it will do 195mph, but at sensible speeds the GTC is just as quiet and refined as the coupé on the motorway.
