Bentley has revealed its new Grand Convertible concept before the start of this year’s Los Angeles motor show.
Hinting at a future Mulsanne convertible, the concept car is being described as “the most sophisticated open-top car ever created” by the brand.
Company chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, who unveiled the car in Los Angeles, said, “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.”
Finished in “Sequin Blue”, the Grand Convertible features a silver “liquid metal” finish to the bonnet and windscreen frame. Contrasting the blue body work is the Bentley directional wheel design, handed to the left and right sides of the car.
On the inside, the linen-coloured leather features contrasting blue stitching, while the tonneau incorporates what is said to be the largest piece of wood veneer ever applied to a Bentley.
The 6.75-litre twin-turbo V8 engine under the bonnet is taken from the flagship Mulsanne and delivers 530 bhp and 811 lb-ft of torque.
