The new Continental GT Mulliner Convertible is the luxury pinnacle of the Continental GT family.
Mulliner has gone above and beyond the industry-leading craftsmanship so synonymous with Bentley and the world’s definitive Grand Tourer to create the Continental GT Mulliner Convertible and redefine the pinnacle of roof-down automotive luxury.
The new Continental GT Mulliner Convertible has been created to appeal to those customers wanting an even greater focus on beautiful details. Taking pride of position between the cut-crystal inspired, precision-made headlamps, Bentley Mulliner introduces a bold new Double Diamond front grille which is further complemented by bespoke Mulliner branded side vents that continue the unique silver on black diamond theme.
The Double Diamond design has been inspired by Bentley’s exclusive Diamond in Diamond interior quilting design concept, which adorns all four seats, the door casings, rear quarters and now for the first time furnishes the tonneau cover. The Diamond in Diamond interior quilting itself has been tailored to include contrast stitching in two complementary colours to accentuate the thread against the quilting. It takes almost 400.000 stitches to deliver this quilting across the cabin of the car, with each diamond containing exactly 712 individual stitches – each one precisely aligned to point the centre of the diamond it creates. Developing the embroidery process to deliver this process alone took 18 months.
Furnishing the sleek and muscular profile of the Continental GT Mulliner Convertible are the all-new 22’’ 10-spoke painted & polished wheels with floating, self-levelling wheel badges that remain upright as the wheel rotates.
The ultimate handcrafted Continental GT Mulliner Convertible interior offers eight custom-made three colour combinations. A new Mulliner designed colour split defines the eight colour ways, including a third accent colour to the interior in the form of a distinctive design line. The hand stitched hides are embellished with unique Mulliner branded embroidery.
Bentley Mulliner has combined traditional and modern coachbuilding techniques to introduce new contemporary and bespoke features. A contrast diamond milled technical finish has been applied to the centre console, which is finished with a new and exclusive brushed silver Breitling timepiece set with a quartet of chrome bullseyes to provide stunning interior jewellery. The same theme carries from the physical to the digital, with the precision-rendered gauges of the LED display driver’s instrument panel using the same brushed finished and Mulliner branding.
The new Continental GT Mulliner Convertible features mood lightning comprising of seven different themes, uplifted by illuminated Mulliner tread plates and LED welcome lamps that project the famous Bentley wings to the ground from the door mirrors.
The Continental GT Mulliner Convertible is available with the top of the range Naim for Bentley audio system. The state of the art setup features eighteen speakers and two active bass transducers driven by a 2200 watt, 20 channel amplifier and eight DSP sound modes with Active Bass.
