Weekend - that's the time for partying, shopping, for family and friends, care of the mobile base or just for dreaming. In this blog article we decide for the latter and find the ideal basis with the modelcars of the Bentley Continental GTC Convertible from 2019. Who would not like to drive along the coast of South France with the role model, like from Marseille via St. Tropez to Monte Carlo or Monaco? The loved at ones side, with open roof, at least 25 degrees at sunshine and a beat, which contributes the right background to the good mood? Perhaps the longing for it also accompanied the engineers on their work on the Avenue de Bohlen in Vaulx-en-Velin, Norev's headquarters: the result is a really excellent modelcar in the color blue crystal.
With the Bentley Continental GTC 2019, Norev now delivered the newest version of the breath-taking luxury convertible in scale 1:18. Vaulx-en-Vaulin is not located in South France though, but the sun at the Côte d'Azur could have inspired the mold makers to their good performance: The result, which drives into the showcase of the collector under the item number 182785 is hardly to be surpassed in processing quality. It can be assumed that the appearance of the diecast mode car perfectly matches that of the prototype. The little Bentley still has opening doors and functioning hoods. Under the bonnet, the collector can expect a miniature of the 6.0 liter W12 engine, which delivers 467 kW / 635 hp to the all-wheel drive and accelerates the convertible with air suspension to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.7 seconds, suitable for racing. Top speed: 333!
Bentley specifies the maximum torque as 900 Newton meters (Nm). The drive is shifted via eight-speed dual clutch transmission; this also applies to the smaller V8, which produces 404 kW / 549 hp at 770 Nm and reaches a top speed of 318 km/h. As is common today, the drive set is hidden under a black plastic cover for both the prototype and thus the modelcar. The buyer gets bid more for the eye by the miniature in the interior, in which a multi-colored design of the instrument panel and dashboard also goes into the decorative parts that Bentley gives the luxury convertible on the trip: the ventilation nozzles, the switches on the center console and, above all, the elegant seeming leather steering wheel leaves no claim to a top miniature. Our conclusion: include it in the collection and dream! Have a nice Weekend!
