The Appeal

In the UK and around the world, the Bentley name is synonymous with comfort, luxury and grand tour driving. With a drop top roof and an eye-catching specification, this particular 2007 Continental GTC is surely the epitome of the Bentley ethos.

Throughout its life, this car has been particularly well looked after as its vast history file will attest. MOT print outs, full service history booklets and countless receipts all show over a decade’s worth of pampering. Furthermore, a fresh set of wheels and an uprated Pioneer Bluetooth head unit certainly sweeten the deal on this grand tour specialist ready for the summer sun.

The Interior

  • Fireglow with Beluga leather interior
  • Uprated Pioneer stereo system with Bluetooth
  • Great condition inside
Pairing well with the Claret roof is the Fireglow leather interior. The seats and much of the dashboard is decorated in this bright colour choice which certainly sets this model apart from the more traditional shades of black found in most cars. The red seats and dash trim are contrasted by the darker accents of wood and leather found throughout the cabin. 

Nestled within the centre console, one will spot the uprated stereo system. This Pioneer unit features Bluetooth and wireless functionality, something the standard system does not boast. 

Despite nearly 70,000 miles of use, the leather seats and controls all look in good shape. From the history file, it’s clear to see this model has been well cared for over the years.

The Exterior

  • Silver Tempest paint and Claret hood look great
  • Wheels recently refurbished
Outside, this 2007 model looks just as good as the interior. The Silver Tempest is seemingly in excellent condition whilst the Claret hood brightens up the specification. Up front, a black grille is most certainly an aftermarket addition as it does not feature on the build certificate.

Just one year ago, the wheels were refurbished explaining their fantastic condition. They are fitted with a new set of Pirelli P-Zero tyres. 

A pair of holes in the soft top can be seen to the rear of the driver’s side. However, the owner mentions that these don’t negatively impact the roof’s insulation. Aside from these small imperfections, the car looks to be in very good condition. The paint seems to shine well in the sun and the body panels all look straight.

The Mechanics

  • 6-litre W12 engine, 552 horsepower
  • Very extensive service history
  • “Drives perfectly”

Under the expansive bonnet on this 2007 Bentley Continental GTC sits the standard 6-litre W12 engine capable of producing over 550 hp. Over the years, this behemoth of an engine has been extremely well taken care of, as one can see from the extensive history file. The current owner estimates the total amount spent on servicing and maintaining this car over the years to be “in excess of £20,000.”

The investment from previous owners shows in the car’s condition today. Reportedly, “everything works” and the car “drives perfectly.” Furthermore, it has never failed an MOT during its 16 years on the road.

Not only does this 2007 open top Bentley have a large history file accompanying it. It also features a very impressive bill of health. Bar some visual imperfections to the soft top hood, it looks to be in great condition whilst the service history will attest to the car’s mechanical shape. 

A drop top luxury GT, this example is surely ready for plenty of summer miles under the sun.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
