The British have contributed massively to the world of automobiles, and none more than in the luxury segment. Their much-lauded luxury vehicle manufacturer brand Bentley has been in the business for well over 100 years since 1919. While owned by the Volkswagen Group since 1998, the Bentley brand is still wholeheartedly British. In a bid to increase its presence in the global luxury vehicle market, Bentley introduced the Bentley Continental GT, a grand tourer. It holds the honor as the first Bentley vehicle to step away from hand-build manufacturing to mass production techniques. The Continental GT is currently in its third generation. One of these magnificent 2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertibles is up for sale with just 3,500 miles on the clock.
