Bentley Continental GT Convertible, Speed Black Edition

Sure the new Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition squeezes a little more horsepower—633, up from 626—out if its 12-cylinder engine (rifling from zero to 60 in 3.9 seconds), but most people will be talking about this convertible for its new look. A high-gloss black finish has been added to exterior details like the window openings and the lamp bezels, complementing the black 21-inch five-spoke wheels. Paired with a front splitter, rear diffuser, and side skirts available in four hues—yellow, red, black, and a silvery grey—the result is a sporty, yet sophisticated high-contrast presentation. The interior is also a study in contrasts, offering bold, new combinations, like touches of bright yellow against dark leather. From $277,235; bentleymotors.com.
