Bentley Continental GTC

Bentley Motor Cars unveiled the fourth new model since the brand’s 1999 renaissance at their press conference at the 2006 New York International Auto Show-a convertible version of the Continental called the GTC. This is the world’s fastest four-seat convertible, with a top speed of 195 miles per hour, or 190with the top down (!). Built on a rigid steel chassis, we expect the GTC to exhibit none of the shimmying and shaking associated with other drop-tops-and sporting the GT’s 6-liter V12, we expect excellent acceleration as well. As they say, “wings were made for the sky”-make mine a drop-head.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
