Bentley's $400K Continental GTC convertible makes its Aussie debut in Sydney

27 Oct 2006

RESURGENT British brand Bentley came out in force in Sydney this year by giving its Continental GTC convertible and model year 2007 Arnage sedan their Asia-Pacific debuts.

The GT coupe-based GTC convertible brings to three the number of models in the Continental range and was revealed in 2005 – the same year the Continental Flying Spur sedan was launched here.

The Continental GT coupe was released in Australia in 2003. First deliveries of the Continental GTC, powered by a 411kW/650Nm 6.0-litre W12 that propels the 2+2 convertible to 100km/h in a supercar-style 5.1 seconds, will arrive in Australia by late this year, priced at $399,500 plus stamp duty and on-road costs.

With 11 per cent more power, 14 per cent more torque and now featuring a six-speed ZF auto, Bentley’s flagship saloon offers a 373kW/1000Nm 6.75-litre twin-turbo V8 and, in top-shelf (2585kg) Arnage T guise, sprints to 100km/h in just 5.2 seconds. It is priced at $545,000.

The long-wheelbase Arnage RL (2655kg) is priced at $599,000 and blasts to 100km/h in a claimed 5.5 seconds, while the entry-level Arnage R is priced at $505,000.

Also on display in Sydney is an example of Bentley’s Continental GT Diamond Series, built to commemorate 60 years of car manufacturing at Crewe and featuring carbon ceramic brakes.
