In case you think that you are looking at the completely exposed all-new 2018 Bentley Continental GT, we suggest you look closer because this testing model still sports an ultra-thin camouflage. However, it’s quite clear that the amazing car features a totally different look from its predecessor.
The confusing blue camouflage doesn’t hide car’s new exterior design at all, so we can easily conclude what’s cooking beneath. The new generation Bentley Continental GT features an interesting styling, especially in the front. There is a massive hood along with a redesigned grille and a completely new pair of headlights, which will definitely come with the production model. In addition, the car will host dynamic rooflines and pretty interesting rear end that’s also getting new taillights and redesigned exhaust setup.
The 2018 Bentley Continental GT won’t have just a new face. No, the car will ride on an all-new platform, which is named MSB. The architecture is developed by the Volkswagen Group, and it’s used already on the new generation Porsche Panamera. The platform is basically rear-wheel drive, but it can also support all-wheel drive setup.
Speaking of which, the 2018 Bentley Continental GT will definitely use the new twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbo engine that also has direct fuel injection. The drivetrain should be capable of producing at least 600 horsepower. The amazing car will also get a V8 mill, as well as a plug-in hybrid option, which will deliver around 500 hp. The system will combine a V6 engine and a single electric motor that will be in pair with a lithium-ion battery. However, the Bentley Continental GT hybrid will come a year after the regular model.
The 2018 Bentley Continental GT will be introduced in the next couple months, so we will have more information very soon.
