New Bentley Continental GT teased before Paris

The new generation Bentley Continental GT will make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, so the British company is busily preparing for the car’s launch. As part of their excitement-building brigade, Bentley has just set up an official web page that teases the next model. The first official details will be revealed in 19 days.

The exterior changes don’t appear to be numerous, as the front fascia is a bit more aggressive and the rear window slopes more. The new Continental will feature new headlights with LED lights - similar to those of the new Mulsanne as well as a more aggressive air damn, revised front air ducts, and a new set of wheels. There is also a subtle redesign of the interior that will provide the driver with new, modern conveniences such as a reworked navigation system and infotainment center while also allowing them to customize their ride.

The 2012 Continental is also expected to go on a diet by using an aluminum space frame, comparable to that of the Audi R8 . Expect improved performance from the 6.0 liter W12 although the new Continental will most likely not receive a substantial amount of power.
