For a car that’s now entering its teenage years, the Bentley Continental has aged with a surprising degree of dignity. And yet despite numerous evolutionary upgrades since 2003, it remains much as it was in the beginning. Bentley’s introduced a variety of styling tweaks for the 2016 model year, and there are four versions of the latest drop-top Bentley Continental GTC to choose from.

The worse the tarmac, the more obvious the Bentley Continental GTC’s minor lack of structural integrity seems, although

 

Visually, the 2016 Bentley Continental GTC gets a new grille a rear diffuser on the speed, a tiny boot spoiler and a mildly redisgned front bumper. Light surrounds front and rearare pepped up with a touch of chrome, while a very minor cabin facelift includes a new clock design, more sculpted gearchange paddles and some fresh colour options.
