Bentley has released a new picture of the replacement for the Arnage — and Autocar can reveal that the new flagship’s styling will feature dramatic proportions and an unusual twin-headlight arrangement.
Due to be unveiled at next month’s Pebble Beach concours in California, the new car’s striking headlamps are a dominant feature of its styling.
A pair of large circular LED headlamps are positioned high and close to the expansive chromed grille surround.
Sited lower down and towards the outer edge of the nose are a pair of driving lamps, a layout that nods towards Bentleys from the past.
Below the grille is a chromed lower air intake that echoes the new styling theme of Bentley parent VW. It runs the full width of the nose to emphasise the stance of the “Grand Bentley”, as the car is currently known.
Sticking with a 5m-plus length, the new Bentley will feature a lower roofline and softer body sections than its main rival, the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
