Imperium Audentia based on Bentley Continental GTC

Article by Christian A., on May 8, 2012

Imperium Automotive has launched the new limited edition customization package for the new generation Bentley Continental GTC. The famed Bentley personalization specialists updated the exclusive Imperium Audentia GTC convertible upgrade program.

New Imperium Bentley Continental GTC Audentia package -- a limited edition upgrade and is available in the strictly limited worldwide production number – is an exclusive package that can be ordered directly through UK based Imperium. The Audentia GTC package comes with a a new bespoke designed front bumper with grille, air vents and visually lowering sport side skirts.

The custom rear apron design provides a new subtle boot lip spoiler, rear diffuser and newly designed sports exhaust tips. The Imperium Bentley Audentia GTC bodywork parts are deftly designed and built using the finest British engineering techniques, processes and principles. Each individual limited edition package is offered in the finest ultra light prepreg autoclave carbon fibre.

It was back in 2010 when Bentley first launched the GT coupe. Using this as an inspiration and combined with utilizing the successful platform on the cabriolet, the same one unveiled in 2006, this has resulted in the new Bentley Continental GTC. Under this new offering, the design team and the engineering team made sure to enhance almost all of the features on the iconic convertible while ensuring that the focus on the quality was not compromised.

Thus while the first Continental GTC was modest and elegant, the addition of the confident stance plus the sharper radii meant that the new version would not only have a stronger presence but also a more modern look. Though 20-inch wheels are fitted as standard, a 21-inch version is offered as an option and even comes in three styles. This is a first for the GTC and strengthens the new model’s athletic and unique stance.

Further by making use of cutting-edge manufacturing methods, it made it possible to add in the front wings, made of aluminum, without any welds or seams. The result is the new Continental GTC gets a feel and looks similar to a coach-built car. Many customers are familiar with the fact that the GTC is known to have refinements like that of a coupe. However for the latest offering, this has been improved as well.

Complementing the multi-layered and personalized hood are the under-body panels and the acoustic glass, which also optimize the noise isolation. When the first GTC was released, one of the signatures that made it highly valued was that that despite being a luxury convertible, it had features that made is practical for use on a daily basis. For the new GTC however, the cabin is now more practical than ever.

Examples of such features include new storage solutions and extra legroom in the rear. There are highly advanced features as well like the automatic seat-belt presenters and the infotainment with touch-screen capability. With the Neck Warmer, a Bentley design no less, comfort is guaranteed even when the roof is down and regardless of the temperature. While this luxury convertible allows for four occupants, the space inside is indeed now larger.

It is clear as well that the cabin has a number of hand-crafted features that go well with the leather hides that are soft to the touch. There is also a wide range of wood veneers, deep-pile carpets, and cool-touch metals. A total of 17 colors are offered for the soft-touch leather hide as standard as well as six color split combinations. Complementing this are 7 veneers, all of which have been made by the skilled craftsmen and craftswomen of Bentley.
