Does the world really need a W12 convertible with more power? No. Is it a better place that there is one? Definitely.
Like the Continental GT Speed coupe, the convertible has a 6L twin-turbo W12 with 485kW (650hp) and 900Nm (664 lb-ft), 8-speed DCT and AWD.
The 0-100km/h is vanishingly slower at 3.7s (who really cares any more at this point?), and the top speed is unchanged at 335km/h (208mph).
Handling is improved with all wheel steering, and an electronic rear differential. There’s also a 48V antiroll system, and optional carbon ceramic brakes.
