It may look the same, but the 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible is new from soup-to-nuts underneath, and much improved.

Riding atop the Volkswagen Group's MSB architecture, the new Conti droptop is both stiffer and lighter.

0-60 mph runs happen in a Bentley-estimated 3.7 seconds and top speed is listed at 207 mph.

This color is dubbed Orange Flame. 

It looks great and miles deep, but I might advise against the black optics package, because it lends a bit of a Halloween vibe to the overall look.

Bentley offers 15 leather colors; this is one of the most subdued. 

You can also chose from 15 different carpet tones, as well as eight different wood veneers.

The 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 will presumably be joined by a smaller, less-expensive V8 engine option in the not-too-distant future.
