Imperium Automotive unveils the Exclusive Audentia GTC Convertible
Bespoke drop-top luxury.
In 2011, Bentley introduced the all-new, second-generation Continental model that offered even better performance, luxury, and efficiency than ever before. With the new convertible model becoming available in markets across the globe, Imperium Automotive is offering a new limited edition package for the new Continental GTC.
The new Imperium Audentia GTC Convertible is an ultra-exclusive upgrade program that transforms the exterior design of the Continental GTC. Every component was developed by British designers using modern manufacturing techniques and testing to ensure the utmost in precision, quality, and fitment. The hand-built Imperium Audentia GTC Convertible features prepreg autoclave carbon fiber bodywork to keep weight at a minimum so that the overall driving performance is not affected in a negative manner.
The face of the Imperium Audentia GTC Convertible has changed compared to the standard model, but still features a distinct Bentley design. The front bumper was aerodynamically redesigned for efficiency and style with larger air intakes and downforce-inducing components along with a bespoke grille. A new set of side skirts help to visually lower the ride height of the convertible and help slice through air at higher speeds. The upgraded rear of the Audentia GTC Convertible is more muscular than ever before. The bumper has been redesigned and utilizes a diffuser and bootlid spoiler to generate downforce while two sport exhaust tips let out a thunderous roar.
Imperium Automotive also offers a number of performance options as part of the Audentia GTC Convertible. Each exhaust system is handmade and custom-tailored to produce the exact sound and noise level as specified by the client. The two new engines that Bentley uses to power the Continental GTC can be upgraded by the bespoke manufacturing company with ECU tuning. In terms of overall driving performance, the Imperium Audentia GTC Convertible can be modified with a number of performance braking systems and sport suspension upgrades.
Matching the exclusive design and character of the exterior bodywork is the interior in the Audentia GTC Convertible. Here, customers can create an individual atmosphere using a virtually limitless range of colors, materials, and stitching. Soft leather, ultra suede, beautiful carbon fiber and fine wood can be used throughout the interior and are installed by expert craftsmen. Imperium Automotive also offers a number of unique accessories for customers to improve the overall driving experience. New ergonomically-designed steering wheels with ultra suede or leather grips and carbon fiber, wood, or piano black finishes are available along with aluminum foot pedals. Beautiful illuminated door sills, LED ambient lighting, and custom-designed floor mats can also be installed to create a unique and luxurious atmosphere.
The Imperium Audentia GTC Convertible is an exclusive limited-edition upgrade program that can only be ordered directly through the UK based manufacturer. The Audentia GTC Convertible program is available for the newest-generation Bentley Continental GTC models for customers worldwide.
