Bentley always aspires to be the king of the luxury performance market — looking to provide the thrilling speed and handling of a super car with the comfort and grace of an ultra-luxury car. All of those concepts come together in the company's flagship sportster, the GT Speed Convertible.

The latest version of the GT Speed arrived in Detroit for the 2013 North American International Auto Show this week. Described by Bentley as a Grand Tourer, the GT Speed Convertible sports a 616 horsepower, twin turbocharged, 6 0 liter, 12 cylinder engine with a top speed of 202 mph. Even with all of that power, Bentley reports a 15% boost in fuel efficiency. On the exterior, buyers get 21-inch alloy wheels and rifled exhaust pipes.

As for how much all of this will cost you, Bentley didn't release that news in Detroit. I guess they'll be free. Enjoy.
