NEW YORK – The new Bentley Continental GTC 2+2 convertible receives its public debut at the New York International Show here.

It will go on sale later in the year.

The car is powered by a twin-turbocharged 6L W-12 engine that can hit 195 mph (314 km/h) with the top up and 190 (306 km) with it down. The GTC accelerates from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.8 seconds.

The all-wheel-drive vehicle offers an ultra-luxurious interior.

β€œIt is the most distinctive new Bentley yet,” says Bentley Chairman Franz-Josef Paefgen.

The GTC is the second convertible in the Bentley lineup, joining the upscale Azure in this sporty segment.
