Bentley unveils its new Grand Convertible at the Los Angeles Motor Show. Will they build it? Yes, probably.[Not a valid template]
Want some top-down Bentley action, but the GT is too small for you? Then happy days, my wealthy friend, for look what was just unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show. The Bentley Grand Convertible is the most sophisticated soft-top ever created by the British firm and according to Bentley combines the opulence of the Mulsanne with “the full sensory experience of open-air touring”.
Officially, the Grand Convertible on show in LA has been developed to gauge interest from customers, but we’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t make it to production. For now we’ll have to make do with this one, which comes clad in Sequin Blue paint and a liquid metal finish on the bonnet and windscreen frame. The powerplant is Bentley‘s familiar 6.75-litre twin-turbo V8 with 530bhp and 811lb ft of torque.
Inside, herds of leather and blue stitching keep things swanky alongside the Burr Walnut wood tonneau cover, polished to a mirror finish.
We fully expect to see the Grand Convertible swanning around well-heeled streets within the next year or so. Unless nobody likes it, of course.
