Bentley chose the 2009 North American International Auto Show to launch one of the fastest hair dryers in the world, the 600 hp Continental GTC.
This 2485kg, all-wheel drive convertible can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds, and its top speed, with the roof down is 312 km/h (roof up you gain an extra 10 km/h).
You can visually spot the difference between the regular GTC and the GTC Speed from its more upright grille and a very slim spoiler on the trunk.
Inside you get a new steering wheel, an upgraded navigation system, and a wonderful new Naim sound system that features 14-speakers that can pump out 1100 watts.
Just so you don’t lose yourself listening to the music too much, there is an intelligent cruise control system which keeps a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front automatically.
To make your journeys even more relaxing, you get massaging seats for the driver and the front passenger, just the thing you need on your drive to the spa.
The Continental GTC is on sale now, and if you have to ask how much, you just aren’t rich enough yet.
