What should I be paying?
Prices start at around £16,000 more than the coupe, in the mid 160s. The Aston DB11 Volante, meanwhile, costs just shy of £160k, while the Ferrari Portofino is a weirdly specific £166,241. The Rolls-Royce Wraith is over £100k more than the GT Convertible, and at the other end of the scale a Mercedes S-Class Cabrio is only £140k.
Nobody will spend mid 160s on one of these, though. The options list is simply too tempting. That cool, rotating infotainment screen? Some £4,700. The GTC Speed costs £242,000 and with the stone veneer (yes really) dashboard and some other choice options, and we've tested one GTC Speed that was specced to just shy of £290,000.
But buying a Bentley is not an economical move, so who cares? You certainly won’t. Nor about economy, though it’s worth noting that even the big-boy W12’s claimed 20.2mpg, 317g/km of CO2 and circa 400-mile cruising range are all far from the worst we’ve seen.
