Bentley’s Galene convertible takes to the high roads

Limited-edition inspired by luxury yachts

Bentley has unveiled a new limited edition version of its Continental GT Convertible. Only 30 examples of the Galene will be available worldwide.

Apparently named after the Greek goddess of calm seas, and inspired by luxury yachting, the Galene has been created by Bentley’s bespoke division, Mulliner, in association with Princess Yachts.

The convertible is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 507hp and a maximum torque of 660Nm.

Taking its cue from the high seas, the Galene has a Glacier White paint finish with Sequin Blue detailing and a dark blue retractable hood. Clearly having thought of everything, Bentley has designed 21-inch ‘Propeller Wheels’.

Inside, there’s a new bespoke wood finish, Pinstripe Walnut. The Glacier White paintwork is echoed inside and the front fascia features a hand-painted illustration of a superyacht by Jaume Vilardell.
