It shouldn't come as a surprise that the 2010 Bentley Continental GTC Speed is a nice automobile, as the Bentley name doesn't get slapped to just any old thing. But just how much nice are you getting for the price of a large home in Lansing, Michigan? Is this Bentley that much better than drastically cheaper luxury convertibles, and is the GTC Speed's extra performance chutzpah worth the extra $14,200 on top of the regular Continental convertible?
In Bentley-speak, GTC refers to the convertible version of the Continental GT coupe. The Speed bit signifies that this Bentley is "Born of the same heart as the GTC, but with a different soul. Darker. Sportier. Tauter." Makes it sound like Catwoman. But while the Speed may have bigger wheels, bigger brakes, a more powerful version of the twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 and improved handling dynamics, don't assume that it's some sort of hard-core BMW M-style sports machine. Instead, the GTC Speed retains every drop of Bentley civility -- it even ups the ante -- while doing a more adept job of helping 5,600 pounds of stately British motor car contend with the laws of physics.
Overall, we'd have to say the 2010 GTC Speed is worth the extra cash over the "regular old" GTC. You're already paying more than $250 large, so 14 additional Clevelands aren't going to break the bank. As for whether it's worth, say, $137,000 more than a Jaguar XKR convertible?
