Recently an all new model of the Bentley Continental GT was photographed as it was cruising along the roads in Netherlands. The prototype was heavily camouflaged by fake panels, but the overall look makes us very excited about this model.
The first thing that you will notice is its redesigned headlight cluster that seems to be heavily inspired from the EXP10 Speed Six concept car of the company. The overall look of the sedan is more compact and edges seem sharper as compared to the current Continental GT model.
The spied Continental GT will be a two door car with similar seating arrangement as is found in the current model of Bentley Continental GT available in the market. It is believed that the new model will be based on a new platform which is codenamed MSB.
This platform is also believed to be used to manufacture the next Porsche Panamera model. However, there will not be extensive changes in the new model and it will still retain some old Bentley charm.
Other things that the picture of the next generation Bentley Continental GT revealed is a big air dam and flared wheel arches, body coloured ORVMs with embedded turn lights and character lines on the hood of the car.
The spied shot also revealed that that this car will have two big sized air ducts in the front bumper to dry the brakes, a sloping front and back windscreens and body colored B pillar.
Experts deduce that the company is likely to roll out this model in two trims.
The lower trim is likely to be powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine, whereas the upper trim is believed to be powered by a more powerful W12 engine that is expected to churn a maximum power of 600hp.
Although no official statement is released about this model, auto experts predict that it will be rolled out in Q4 2017.
