They aren't neck-snapping like the current crop of automated manual supercars, but even with traditional automatic, shifts are quick and crisp.

Bentley Continental GTC
Superb everyday practicality for a luxury convertible was a hallmark of the original GTC and much valued by its customers.
Bentley’s design and engineering teams have improved virtually every aspect of the iconic convertible with an uncompromising focus on quality.

Bentley Continental GTC
While the Azure offers the ultimate in glamour and sophistication, the Continental GTC is designed for customers looking to enjoy the phenomenal performance, style and excitement of the Continental GT with the additional benefits of classic open-top Bentley motoring.
It follows the recently announced return of the evocative Azure name for Bentley's Arnage-derived flagship four-seater convertible which goes on sale in Spring 2006.

Bentley Continental GTC V8
Expressing their potent, muscular character, both new Continental V8 models are distinguished by a black gloss matrix grille with chrome frame and centre bar, a red enamel Bentley ‘B’ badge, and a black matrix three-segment lower front bumper divided by distinctive body-coloured strakes.
Inside the cabin, an Eliade cloth headlining, new contemporary Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneers, optional two-tone leather colour split and short centre console continue the fresh, sporting design theme.
17 standard soft-touch leather hide colors with six color split combinations are available and complemented by a range of seven veneers, all of which come courtesy of Bentley’s renowned group of talented craftsmen and women.
These numbers are almost identical to that of the Continental GTC so it’s really a wash when it comes to performance.
