Bentley tries to impress the North-American public with its
surprise for this year Los Angeles Motor Show. The British manufacturer
introduced the Bentley Grand Convertible, the most sophisticated open-top car
ever created by Bentley.
It is a Mulsanne that had his roof removed and replaced with a soft-top. The concept car is painted in Sequin Blue, originally a bespoke colour created from a single sequin from a customer’s haute couture gown and has a silver “liquid metal” finish to the bonnet and windscreen frame.
Big 22-inch wheels made from light alloys hide impressive disk brakes. The brakes will be used to stop the monster, who has 537 PS and 1,100 Nm of torque from Bentley’s legendary 6,75 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, also found on the flagship Mulsanne.
The interior of the roofless limousine will impress with 14 naturally tanned leather hides that are merged together with progressive-diamond quilting, with the shape of the pattern changing over the seats and doors.
Replete with book-matched, mirror-finished and dark-stained Burr Walnut, the tonneau features the largest piece of wood veneer ever applied to a Bentley. It is fashioned entirely by hand.
