The Bentley Continental Convertible stands out for its rarity compared to the Rolls Corniche Convertible, making it highly coveted for its subtle front-end design and Bentley’s esteemed sporting heritage. Only an estimated 195 Continental Convertibles were sold worldwide between 1985 and 1989, with a fraction making their way to the United States. This 1988 Bentley Continental boasts a white exterior over grey leather upholstery and is powered by a 6.75-liter V8 engine paired with a three-speed automatic transmission. It features 15” alloy wheels, a maroon soft top, interior wood trim, power windows, cruise control, air conditioning, a locking glove compartment, and power-adjustable front seats with memory settings. Showing approximately 52k miles on the odometer, this Bentley Continental is now offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.

The interior of this vehicle features grey Connolly leather upholstery accented with maroon piping, complemented by maroon cut-pile wool carpeting.
