New Bentlley Continental GT lineup confirmed with new V8 engine and facelift


Bentley doesn’t make a lot of car models, in fact, it has only two distinct models in its lineup. So, when you see changes in the new Bentley car, you are to surely recognize it right away. With that, Bentley is giving a new facelift to the Continental GT.

Currently, the revised Bentley Continental GT is on the market, and Bentley plans to unveil the new Continental GTC convertible version at the Frankfurt Motor Show. To give more engine options to its lineup, Bentley is adding a new turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine along with the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine to the Continental GT lineup, which we will expect in the new Continental GTC convertible version.

So far, no official specs released yet on the new turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, but we expect it to develop about 550 horsepower to stay inline with the W12 engine’s 576 horsepower. With a lighter V8 engine, we can expect performance numbers at the track to increase for the new Bentley Continental GT.

Stay tuned, we’ll have more specific details as the Frankfurt Motor Show approaches.
