As temperatures rise and ladies' garments fall, nothing seals dates like the right ride. Meeting such standards, Bentley introduces the Continental GT Convertible. Any Continental coupe ownerâ€”who, by now, is any celebrity with MTV Cribs aspirationsâ€”will, by default, soon own the GT convertible. Big spenders can't resist the urge. "It will again open up the Bentley brand to more customers who only buy convertibles,â€ says Bentley chairman Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, "as well as being a logical next car for our existing owners.â€
Motorists who front like their ragtop is the only car fit for sunburns have to respect Bentley's approach. "With the Continental GTC, we set out to achieve a style that is both contemporary and elegant, but with the sporting stance of a true performance car,â€ says design director Dirk van Braeckel. Bentley kept it classic, looks-wise, but maintained the 552hp engine when drawing up the GTC. Even with the top down, Bentley claims this drop will hit a fro-fluffing 190mph. "We also wanted to ensure that the Continental GTC looks just as beautiful with the roof up as it does when it's down,â€ adds Dirk van Braeckel, referring to the soft fabric and leather top-shell.

Ah yes, the stripper-like whip. The more you throw at the $175-grand drop the more she gives back (easing up on the go-fast pedal isn't easy in the Gallardo Spyder). Basically, this is nymphomania on wheels. So, if your lame spit-game results in backseat vacancy, simply redline every gear all night. You'll burn major rubber, one way or another.
