Also included are high-gloss carbon fibre on the dashboard, centre console and roof panel, featuring red weave. The seats, too, are piped in red and a touchscreen infotainment system from the new Continental GT also features.

Powering the ‘Ice Speed Record’ is the firms six-litre, twin turbo-charged W12 engine, producing 631bhp and 590lb ft of torque. This is mated to a ‘quickshift’ six-speed automatic ‘box launching the convertible from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds according to Bentley.
