Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible revealed

Bentley's bespoke division has given the Continental GT Convertible a makeover ahead of its 2020 Geneva motor show debut. The revisions made by Mulliner to Bentley's standard Continental GT Convertible appear mostly aesthetic. A quilted interior contains almost 400,000 individual stitches – up from the 310,675 in the 2019 Continental GT Convertible – in an embroidery process the marque says took 18 months to develop.

Porsche 956 C and 919 take on the Nurburgring - Video

Killed young, the 919 Hybrid might never reach legend status alongside the likes of the 956, but that hasn't stopped Porsche rolling both cars out side-by-side. Last week, the company used the VLN 24 Hour race to show off its now-defunct hybrid racer at a 25.2-kilometre lap around the combined Grand Prix and Nordschleife circuit.
