Continental SC
(Introduced 1998)

The stunning new Bentley Continental SC sedanca coupé is a high performance, 155 mph motor car with bold, striking styling and an exciting adaptable
glass roof system.

It offers two distinctive experiences of Bentley driving its interior opened up to the sky when the weather is set fair,
or enclosed in air-conditioned comfort when it is not.


The roof panels are made of an advanced, high-strength glass, designed to admit lots of light yet restrict 84% of the sun's energy from passing directly through, thereby providing maximum protection against solar radiation.

Two glass panels above the driver and front passenger are framed by laser cut aluminium, are easily removable, and can be stowed in the trunk.
A third, fixed panel over the rear passengers provides protection and panoramic
views.

To complement the bright, open impression of the interior, Bentley stylists have developed a striking design theme with two-colour upholstery
and detailed touches such as a sparkling chromed gear lever, engine start
button, and drilled alloy pedals.

The exterior of the Continental SC is characterised by muscular wings, a pronounced sill feature line, special alloy wheels and a distinctive air dam suggesting levels of performance that aficionados of the marque will
find highly impressive.

The turbocharged and intercooled 6.75 litre V8 engine generates
800Nm (590lbft) of torque at 2,150 rpm and 300kW (400bhp) at 4,150 rpm figures which hold promise of thrilling Bentley coupé performance.
Maximum speed is 249 km/h (155 mph), the SC accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds, or 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds, and its unique suspension
tune ensures exceptional levels of roadholding.

Identified by a distinctive red winged B atop its stainless steel, laser-cut matrix grille, the Continental SC is a
glasstop sedanca coupé for the 21st century. Its thoroughbred performance and the unique open ambiance combine to provide a distinctive new interpretation
of the spirit of Bentley driving.
