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.

Well apart from the comments about how this thing looks, I am suprised that no-one has picked up on the range showing at 205 miles with over three quarters of a tank of fuel!!!! Not as much as a GT as we are led to believe. Less of a continent crusher, more of a county crusher, as long as it is a smallish county!

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

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.
