Certified

This vehicle is Safety Certified.

The GTC is far from being a GT with the roof lopped off. More than half of the body shell is unique to the drop-top, including everything from the A-pillars aft. The trunklid is higher, the rear seats are lower (there's a tad more rear legroom, too, thanks to scooped-out front seatbacks), the windshield is more steeply raked, and the side glass is new. Trunk space has decreased slightly, but there's still enough room for two golf bags or a healthy allotment of luggage (a rear-seat pass-through provides room for skis). To compensate for the missing roof structure, the GTC is strengthened with steel reinforcements in the door sills,

X-braces beneath the floor that connect the front and rear subframes to the body, and a beefed-up windshield frame. The added underpinnings contribute to a curb weight roughly 240 pounds more than the GT's, but Bentley claims the result is best-in-class body stiffness.

Bentley took no shortcuts in designing the soft-top. Accommodating the folded fabric beneath the sleek rear deck required a rear suspension redesign. The basic rear layout--multiple links, air springs, computer-controlled shocks--mirrors the GT's, but on the GTC the air spring at each corner has been lowered by more than eight inches; it's now mounted to a newly added trapezoidal link. The extra room up top allows for a flush-fitting hard boot that's all but invisible when the roof is packed away.

The GTC will seduce more than hedonists. Even with the couple-hundred- extra pounds to tow around, the 552-horse, twin-turbo W-12 rockets the GTC from 0 to 60 mph in a claimed 4.8 seconds. You read that right: This Herculean Brit can blow off a Shelby GT-H. The rippling 479 pound-feet torque peak arrives at just 1600 rpm and flows to all four wheels, so the GTC is never caught napping, never mars the view of its fetching flanks with unsightly wisps of tire smoke. The ZF six-speed automatic can be stirred with paddle shifters, but mostly you don't need them. Just press on the right pedal and hang on. And on. And on. Remember: This brute won't run out of breath until you're booming across the tarmac like a Nextel Cup stocker.

Though it's hard to say without a back-to-back comparo, the GTC might handle better than its hardtop GT sibling. The suspension is slightly softer, but the improved ride doesn't seem to come at the expense of handling prowess. Nor does the loss of the roof seem to have compromised the Continental's composure. The body doesn't creak, quiver, or shimmy. Ever. Over rough surfaces it's possible to detect a few mild wiggles through the wheel, but generally steering feel is sharp and handling is tenacious (the GTC's front subframe is hard-mounted, which appears to enhance responsiveness). Braking power is excellent, but Bentley's special-edition Diamond Series cars will offer still more stopping capability via carbon-ceramic discs. Perhaps most impressive: With the roof up, from the inside the GTC feels, sounds, and looks like a coupe (aided in part by the soft-top's gorgeous lining).
