On Wednesday evening, Bentley Las Vegas customers were treated to a preview of the new top-of-the-line Bentley Continental GTC Speed, the most powerful Bentley convertible, and possibly the most beautiful, according to Dan Towbin, chairman of Towbin Automotive Group.
Current and prospective Bentley owners were invited to test drive the GTW Speed prior to mixing and mingling at Capo’s Italian Steakhouse, located at 5675 W. Sahara Ave., for a party hosted by restaurant owner Nico Santucci, who also drives a Bentley.
“Bentleys are special cars and the owners are great people who appreciate innovation, beauty and speed — all the characteristics for which the Bentley is known,” said Towbin. “We are proud to offer this new convertible and know it will be a favorite for years to come.”
The new Continental GTC Speed features a dark chrome grill, 20-inch multispoke sport wheels and twin-rifled sports tail pipes. The Speed is equipped with a standard 6.0-liter, V-12, 600-horsepower, turbo engine that achieves 10 miles per gallon in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. It can be fitted with ceramic breaks upon request.
The Speed has a standard range of 17 exterior paint color choices, but colors from the Bentley Arnage or custom colors are also available.
Additionally, the car has Mulliner diamond-quilted leather seats, a knurled-chrome sports lever encased in hide and three-spoke leather steering wheel with aluminum inlays.
The Bentley Las Vegas sales office is located at 2550 S. Jones Blvd. For more information or to schedule a test drive, call 932-7100 or log on to www.towbinbentley.com.
