Champion Motors International is Proud To Present this Beautiful 2009 Bentley Done inBeluga Black exterior with Black Leather interior. The 200 mph GTC Speed is Bentley'smost powerful convertible ever The latest GTC range is refined and extended wth twonew models The new GTC delivers enhanced style, comfort and choice Now, theintroduction of the new GTC range builds on this success wth a subtle evolution of itsdistinctive style and a range of technical and feature enhancements benefiting comfortand customer choice. The appeal of the GTC is further strengthened by the addition ofthe new 600bhp (610PS) GTC Speed model. It is Bentley's most powerful convertibleever and inspired by Bentley's legendary Speed Models' from the 1920s.The new GTC models share a fresh frontal appearance. The radiator grille is moreupright wth a more pronounced square edge, accentuating the Bentley profile, andbolder lower air intake. These latest models are further distinguished by chromeheadlamp bezels, the availability of two new exterior paints and a new colour hide. For the standard GTC, new low-friction dampers provide improved ride comfort. Inaddition, two significant new options may be specified on both GTC models: lightweight,fade-resistant, carbon-ceramic brakes, the largest production passenger car brakes inthe world, and a sophisticated follow-to-stop Adaptive Cruise Control system wth long-range radar sensor that monitors traffic ahead and manages throttle and brakes tomaintain a driver-selected time gap. The GTCs chassis and exceptionally rigid steel body have proved more than capable ofcoping wth the power of the 552bhp (560PS) 6-litre W12 engine. For the newContinental GTC Speed, Bentley's twin-turbocharged W12 now develops 600bhp(610PS) that delivers true 200 mph (322 km/h) performance, wth the roof up, wthexhilarating, effortless acceleration. Even wth the roof down the GTC Speed can reach195 mph (312 km/h).The Continental GTC Speed is visually distinguished by subtle design enhancementswhich emphasise its higher performance credentials. At the front, the radiator and lowerair intake grilles feature a dark tinted matrix as standard. Larger diameter 9.5J x 20-inch, multi-spoke alloy wheels wth Bentley-bespoke Pirelli PZero ultra-highperformance (HP) tyres, lowered and uprated suspension, wider twin-rifled exhaust tailpipes and a new boot-mounted lip spoiler that enhances high speed aerodynamics,reinforce the sporting character of the Speed model. The GTC Speed 600bhp (610PS) W12 engine develops 9 per cent more power thanthe standard GTC. However, it is the 15 per cent increase in torque that reallydistinguishes the Speed model, which now develops an impressive output of 750 Nm(553lb ft). This is achieved across virtually the complete rev range, from just 1700 to5600 rev/min, delivering that characteristic Bentley wave of torque. The 0-60 mph sprint is despatched in a mere 4.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds)and 0-100 mph in 10.6 seconds (0-160 km/h in 10.5 seconds).Engine : 6.0 L., 12-cylinderPower: 600 hpTorque: 553 ft-lbs6-speed AutomaticThe new GTC Speed exemplifies our passion for creating cars that deliver exceptionalperformance and driving enjoyment. It is a driver's car which will redefine peoplesexpectations of what a luxury convertible can achieve.A luxury convertible wth outstanding ride and handlingThe Continental GTC's steel body has an exceptionally rigid torsional stiffness of around30Hz that not only minimises scuttle shake but provides a very stable platform for thealuminium-intensive suspension system, optimising its performance. Despite the boostin power and torque for the GTC Speed model, no changes to the body structure wererequired. For the 552bhp (560PS) GTC, new low-friction dampers provide improved secondaryride (the response of the car to poor road surfaces) and even greater levels of comfort.The GTC Speed has a range of dynamic enhancements that deliver a more sporting,open-top Bentley driving experience. The retuned Continous Damping Control (CDC)system ensures that the body response matches the inputs from the new sports wheelsand tyres, while improved body control reduces pitch and roll when corneringenthusiastically. In addition, stiffer rear axle bushes deliver better axle control and turn-in response.The GTC Speed's suspension is lowered by 10 mm at the front and 15 mm at the rearfor improved handling, while the retuned speed-sensitive steering system and solid-mounted front subframe, shared wth the standard GTC, benefit steering response.The wider 9.5J x 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, unique to the GTC Speed, are fittedwth bespoke 275/35 ZR20 Pirelli PZero ultra-high performance tyres that provide thecar wth superior grip as well as sharper teering response and feel.To ensure optimum aerodynamic balance at speeds up to 200 mph (322 km/h) the newGTC Speed is fitted wth a discreet spoiler on the trailing edge of the bootlid. Thisprovides additional downforce and increases the top speed. For both models, Bentley's carbon-ceramic brakes (CCB) are offered as a cost option.Larger diameter (420 mm front, 356 mm rear), lightweight discs and eight-pistoncallipers offer fade-resistant braking performance wth minimal disc distortion under highthermal conditions. A 20kg weight saving reduces unsprung mass and benefits steeringresponse and handling. This braking system may only be specified wth 20-inchdiameter wheels and are the largest and most powerful brakes ever fitted to aproduction car.The standard-fit tyre-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) allows drivers to select tyretype and speed range parameters. As well as monitoring pressures, the system warnsdrivers if their speed is too high for the tyre pressures or if tyre speed ratings areexceeded on winter tyres.Commenting on the GTC Speed's character, Dr. lrich Eichhorn, Member of the Board,Engineering, said: "The GTC Speed offers supercar performance, superb refinement, comfort andunrivalled craftsmanship all in one car. It perfectly evokes the spirit of the originalBentley Speed Model' of the 1920s."Subtle evolution of the GTC's distinctive styleBoth the GTC and GTC Speed benefit from subtle revisions to their frontal appearance.The matrix grille is now more vertical and has a more pronounced square edge thataccentuates the distinctive Bentley profile. A new lower bumper design wth a widenedair intake reinforces the sporting stance of both GTC convertibles, complemented bynew chrome headlamp bezels. The new design also provides a practical benefit byimproving airflow to the more powerful Speed engine by 14 per cent. The GTC Speed has a unique set of design cues, notably a dark-tinted matrix grille tothe upper and lower air intakes, a black lower bumper valance, wider, rifled exhausttailpipes and 20-inch, silver-painted, multi-spoke alloy wheels. The wheels are availableas an option wth a special dark tint finish.GTC and GTC Speed customers have a choice of 17 standard' paint colours includingtwo new colours (Aquamarine and Blue Crystal).Luxurious hand-crafted cabinThe cabins of both GTC and GTC Speed are available wth a choice of 6 natural,unbleached, laser-cut wood veneers and 17 premium grade leather hides, including thenew option, Aquamarine.The GTC Speed cabin is based on that of the Mulliner Driving Specification (a costoption on the standard GTC). It features diamond quilted hide seats wth embroideredBentley emblems, a knurled chrome and hide gearlever and a three-spoke multi-functionsteering wheel wth brushed aluminium switch surround. These arecomplemented by drilled alloy foot-pedals and Speed' logos to the polished treadplates.The standard GTC also receives a new Bentley brake pedal.A range of options give further opportunities for personalisation, including fascia panels,centre console, door pads and rear quarters in bright aluminium. Uniquely, the GTCSpeed is also available with a dark tint aluminium option. New adaptive cruise control systemA sophisticated follow-to- stop, radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system isnow available on both GTC and GTC Speed. It uses a long-range radar sensor,mounted in the lower front grille, to monitor the road ahead for other vehicles. When aslower moving vehicle is detected, the system automatically adjusts the throttle orbrakes to maintain a time gap, as selected by the driver.
