Introduction

Kevin
Professional Consigner

The epitome of sports luxury, the modern Continental GT is coming up to 20 years in production.

The convertible version of the Continental GT, the 'GTC' first graced the world stage in 2005. Its convertible soft top was produced by Karmann in Germany. The car uses the same powertrain as the GT and accelerates to 60MPH in 4.6s while tapping into 507BHP. This is the second generation GT offering, with a 4L twin-turbo V8 coupled to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Other changes include steering assistance, weight reduction, and some clever engine management that improved the car's economy from ~17.1 MPG to ~26.1 MPG.

These cars are designed to eat up the miles, the clue is in the name, and so this example coming out of 2 years ownership and ~47,000 miles recorded is on the lower side. In a popular and timeless triple black colourway, this car is ready for a restriction free summer.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Kevin after meeting Khal the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

The perfect car to get away on the weekend, it's incredible to drive, very sporty yet luxurious.

Khal purchased the car in 2019, and has covered ~5,000 miles since then. He mentions using it occasionally on the weekend to get away and use it on the open and sweeping roads Yorkshire is blessed with.

With a change in lifestyle over the past year, he's decided that it's time for someone else to enjoy the vehicle and clock up the miles it's designed for and deserves. Khal will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments below.

Exterior

The sculpted body and powerful design of the rear arches offer a substantial presence on the road, all in black.

Wheels and Tyres

The car rolls on 20" alloys, finished in black with contracting metal exposed on the spokes and outer rim. The wheels in general look great, on close inspection we did notice some minor areas where the wheels have met a curb.

The tyres are a mix of Pirelli, Dunlops and Atturo and they all appear to have a great amount of tread left on them, ready to be enjoyed this summer.

Bodywork

All the panel gaps look tight and correct as you would expect from a car of this calibre. The shut lines around the boot, bonnet, and doors also appear tight, with everything opening and closing just a should with a luxurious firm feeling.

The roof when closed looks in great condition too, in black to match the exterior, and free from any worrying marks. Please take a look at the photographs for a closer look at the car's bodywork.

Paint

Presented in a beautiful Black finish the paintwork is as you would expect from a well-cared-for Bentley even in finish and colour across all the panels.

Overall the paintwork is in excellent condition with some small stone chips around the front bumper, please take a look at the exterior video for a detailed tour of the whole car.

Glass and Trim

Around the car, all the chrome trim appears in excellent condition and the glass looks great too, in line with the rest of the exterior and looks free from damage, cracks, chips, or discoloration.

Please see the exterior footage to view each angle of the car.

Interior

Soft-touch leather with exclusive wood veneer offer a spacious and luxurious hand-crafted cabin.

Seats and Carpets

The seats of the GTC carry a distinctive ’cobra style’ to provide comfort and aid in enhancing rear cabin space. This GTC has timeless black leather, stitching, aluminium trim and a dark walnut veneer creating a very luxurious space.

The seats are in excellent condition all around, the seats and bolsters hold their shape very well and are free from major wear. If we were being very picky they're some very minor creases to the bottom seat bolsters and a very minor mark to the back of the driver's seats.

The carpet in the cabin and boot appears clean and free from major wear, both offering a luxurious deep pile.

Dashboard

The dashboard looks great in this luxury sports convertible, everything is where you need it to be, especially when you're hitting the top speeds on the autobahn.

All the dials are clean, clear and Khal reports they're all working as they should.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The black leather steering wheel with aluminium touches looks great inside the car, coupled with an automatic quick-shift gear selector, both of which are in excellent condition for their age and mileage.

Mechanics

A 4.0L V8 twin-turbo engine mated to the new quick-shift transmission cut's shift changing times in half.

Engine and Gearbox

The large Bentley 4L V8 twin-turbo engine is elegantly positioned at the front of the car, considering the size and trim in the car the figures of 0-60 in 4.6s are impressive, top speed going on to ~188MPH.

We captured a video showing the car starting faultlessly from cold, Khal reports wonderfully quick performance that is effortless. The service book shows regular servicing over its life, please take a look in this history and paperwork section.

Suspension and Brakes

Active suspension means the car can adjust how each wheel responds in a fraction of a second. Firming up to minimize body roll in corners but softening to soak up bumps on the motorway. The car will carve through corners with precision and power.

Great performance from the brakes too, reports Khal, just as you would expect from a luxury sports car like this.

The Drive

Whether you just want to sit back and cruise down the continent or race down the autobahn, this car has you covered. Offering the perfect combination of sports and luxury motoring.

Electrics and Other

Fitted inside the cabin is a touchscreen 30GB infotainment system that introduces advanced satellite navigation with dynamic route guidance.

Khal reports all the electrics are working as you would expect.

History and Paperwork

This is the summer sports car you've been looking for, second generation in a timeless triple black.

Coming out of 2 years ownership and just 3 former keepers, the car comes with a stamped up service book and various receipts/MOTs/invoices for work over the years.

Khal will be more than happy to answer any of your questions in the comments below. Please note, the private registration number will not be sold with the car.

We've carried out checks on; Seller ID, V5, HPi.

Hello
Can you please confirm the service history a sthere are some inconsistencies with the bills and stamps

invoice for 18/10/18 @ 40,000 (says on invoice do not stamp the book !!)
service book has a stamp for Bentley MD @ 40,929 on the 20/08/18 but no invoice

was it really serviced twice in 2 months and the mileage on 10/18 is less than in 08/18 ?

thanks

This invoice you are referring about is before I bought the car so that’s the reason. This information supplier’s garage sent to me because I was going to do the service and still didn’t take his word and all the service part to satisfy myself. And the car tiking over very nice. You will know when you drive it

Hi, I see by all the bills, the electric roof has had a lot of work. Can you confirm roof works perfectly now? Thanks

Those flips are to do with electronic hood and they have to be replaced to hood to work perfectly. Yes and they replaced and hood is working perfectly.

Hi Khal,

One of the repair invoices was for n/s & o/s protrusion flap and linkage and stated that these items had been repaired some time ago. Has the car been damaged in an accident in the past?

Hi,

Quick update, Khal has had a health check carried out on the car by Bentley, as he had some issues with the stereo. The car needed a new amp which has now been actioned at a cost of ~£1,400, you can see the invoice here; https://www.tradeclassics.com/auctions/bentley/2012-bentley-continental-gtc/#gallery4-16 along with the health check here; https://youtu.be/yDa7U01lQBU
