Bentley reveals new Continental GTC

Bentley's new Continental GTC convertible will feature a twin turbo 6.0-litre W12 engine.

Capable of running on super-unleaded as well as on E85 biofuel, the new model accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds. It can reach a maximum speed of 195mph.

The mostly hand-crafted GTC's fuel economy figure stands at 17.1mpg on the combined cycle, while the W12 engine produces 567bhp.

The GTC, which is said to be Bentley's 'most emotional' model, was designed after taking into account daily usability and practicality.

Bentley released the original version of the car in 2006.
