Spy images and grabs from teaser video show off the styling of Bentley's new Continental GT
19 August 2010

Bentley will launch a new Continental GT in the build up to next month’s Paris motor show.

The firm has launched a new website for the car, complete with a teaser video and a countdown to the car’s unveil in 19 days' time.

See image grabs from the Bentley Continental GT teaser video, plus the latest spy pics

The video gives little away about the car’s look, showing a succession of clips from the design studio. The car is, however, briefly shown at a test track, revealing its side profile, while interior shots show a redesigned centre console and instrument cluster.

The video focuses on the car’s new front lights design, something that’s also evident from these spy photos taken of the Continental GT in high-altitude testing in the Alps.

The new front-end draws inspiration from the recently launched Mulsanne luxury saloon and both the footage and the spy photos reveal a switch to LED technology.

Other changes revealed by the footage and spy photos include a new wheel design, and new rear bumper and rear lights designs.

Wow - I didn't recognise it! Fantastic, complete redesign that's so good you can't tell the difference.

I must drop a note to the Emporer complimenting him on his new wardrobe - it's just fab!

(Now, that's sarcasm)

Is this really a new car? or is it simply another (not so) "special edition?!!!!

For months now Autocar has led us all to believe the next Bentley GT was going to be diferent, well geuss what?, it wasn't!, maybe it'll have some design tweaks inside and out, but thats all, what seems to be the big news these days is how much power can be extracted out of the engine,evverything else is just window dressing.

Since when has a light facelift equalled a new model? This really does not seem to warrant a website of its own! That said, the old maxim of "if it ain't broke don't fix it" seems appropriate.

Would it perhaps be prudent to actually see a proper photo of the car before we judge it too much? You can't see anything from this blurry picture.

BTW, I prefer cars that evolve by and large. Not always a fan of revolutionary design (except the Jaguar XJ).

I have seen pictures of it without disguise, can't remember whose mag it was, might have been Auto Express, but yes, it does virtually look the same, a bit like a change of make-up and a new hat!, to put an analogy to it!?

Bit less blobby than the old Carrington bus, but only a bit.

Oh great. It's a facelift - and a bad one at that. One of the Conti's biggest problems is that its headlights look the opposite of cross-eyed - this makes them even worse. It badly needs a more focussed-looking nose like that of the Arnage Final Series. Plus the fact that its platform is just an AWD version of a FWD setup, with the engine pushed way too far forwards... make mine a DB9, ta.

It looks even more like a VW group car now...
