2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible: New Name, New Look

When it comes to the world of high-end luxury convertibles, the best is just never enough for the 1-percent-ers. With that in mind, we bring you the all-new 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible. Based on the GT Speed Coupe, it is the ultimate luxury-performance drop-top, and in case you were wondering if Bentley was favoring traditional British sensibilities or not, just look at that purple paint! We hope– nay, expect– that The Artist Here's what you need to know: It weighs a staggering 5,500 pounds. To overcome that weight, it is powered by a twin-turbocharged W12 that makes 616 horsepower and 590 pound feet of torque. The W12 is essentially two V6s mated to one another, so maintenance should be a real treat later in its life cycle.

Altogether, this hefty droptop can get from zero to 60 in just 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph, keeping its reign as the fastest four seat convertible on the market. All we know is, we want one. We want one yesterday. Oh, and we want one yesterday in that purple paint scheme that would make Prince blush. Source: Bentley
