The Continental GTC is the ultimate open-top grand tourer with a 4 liter V8 engine. It’s a unique combination of exhilarating performance, exquisite craftsmanship and stunning design.
It features three-chamber adaptive air suspension, for a smooth, refined ride. Active all-wheel drive monitors traction at all times, redistributing power between the axles in response to changing road conditions. A four-layer hood screens out virtually all road noise when it is sealed shut. This car is all about the thrill of driving with the top down. The V8 engine produces 542 bhp (550 PS), accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) and on to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
The car’s streamlined style and sleek lines are achieved using superformed aluminum, which lends the bodyshell a virtually seamless appearance. A gleaming front grille is accompanied by exquisite detailing, all around the car, from the cut crystal-style LED matrix headlamps to the taillamps and quad exhausts at the rear.
The car is designed to be equally striking with its four-layer roof open or closed. When top closed, it is as well insulated as the Continental GT coupé. Yet when it drops, it is stowed away neatly to allow a single beautiful design line to sweep around the rear seats. With the top down, the interior and the exterior become one, so a connection between the two becomes vital. The incredible standard of craftsmanship therefore continues inside, with handcrafted leather upholstery.
Unlike many convertibles, the Continental GTC enables to raise or drop the roof while driving at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h) – so if the weather changes you can react immediately, without stopping the car. Ventilated seats make summer driving extra pleasurable, while heated armrests, a heated steering wheel and discreet neck warmers make it comfortable to drive with the roof down on cooler days.
The entertainment system is equipped with Apple CarPlay, part of a suite of connected services. A built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless phone charging. Even the headlamps are computer-controlled, using 55 individually controlled LEDs per lamp to vary the shape of the main beam as required, to avoid dazzling other drivers.
