Bentley has unveiled the Grand Convertible concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show, showing it alongside the recently revealed Mulsanne Speed saloon
The Bentley Grand Convertible is the most sophisticated open-top car ever created by Bentley, fashioned entirely by hand from the very finest materials it is basically an open-top Mulsanne without the rear doors.
Even though it is billed as a concept it looks very production ready and according to Bentley Chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer commented: “With this car we combine the opulent Mulsanne experience with the full sensory indulgence of open-air touring, continuing to unite luxury and performance in new ways.
“We are eagerly awaiting the response of our customers to this car. We will ensure that this car – if it reaches the roads – will be a highly exclusive, extremely limited collector’s piece.”
Power comes from the same 530bhp 6.75-litre V8 engine with 811 lb-ft of torque found in the Mulsanne Speed, offering “effortless performance to match its unparalleled style.”
The performance is probably very similar to Mulsanne Speed, which goes from 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 190mph.
