Spied! Next Bentley Continental GT Wears Less Camouflage

Bentley's big grand tourer shows more metal

The next-generation has been spied once more, but this time it's wearing less camouflage and some key design details have been exposed. Perhaps the most visible feature are the car's headlight which feature a familiar look but the smaller outer cluster appears to have been moved further away from the larger inner ones, giving the car a wider, more planted look when viewed head on.

's signature grille also appears wider and thinner than before and the aggressive lower front fascia look like it houses two foglights, which flank the lower air intake. From the side, this prototype looks sleeker and features the same fastback roofline as its predecessor; however, it's more streamlined and it doesn't look heavy. The streamlined look continues out back thanks to a narrower rear fascia, smaller taillight clusters, and what appears to be a smaller trunk opening.

Bentley's next-generation will ride on the same platform that underpins the second-generation and will likely come standard with all-wheel drive. Powering the car should be a new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that's closely related to the unit found in the Panamera Turbo and should come paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Expect an updated twin-turbocharged 12-cylinder engine to also join the lineup as the second gas-powered option. A hybrid variant has also been tipped to join the lineup for the upcoming generation. In addition to the coupe, a convertible variant called the Continental GTC should follow.
