In terms of design first, it is essentially identical to the coupe edition that was launched. It gets nice dark grille, some unique sideskirts and some chrome badging on the front wings. The wheels too are 22-inchers that can be optioned in three different colours. (Image source: Bentley)

Power delivery comes from the same engine as the coupe. This is a version of the 6-litre W12 engine that produces 659 PS of power and 900 Nm of peak torque. The Convertible is just a fraction slower off the line than the hard-top car with sprint times of 3.7 seconds. Top-speed on the other hand is rated at 335 km/h. (Image source: Bentley)

Just like its hard-top sibling, it remains to be seen if the Speed Convertible will make it to India. We do however, get the standard Continental GT as well as the Bentayga SUV and the Flying Spur. (Image source: Bentley)
