Today we’ve got some great footage from Carscoops of a prototype Continental GT with an entire entourage of Bentleys in tow. The new Continental is expected to debut in 2017 and will go on sale in 2018, replacing the current model. Bentley’s top-selling model is expected to retain its 4.0l V8 and 6.0l W12 power plant options and gain a hybrid option.

As I so eloquently tried to point out on Instagram, you can see in this shot that the new Continental appears slightly shorter and wider.  This is probably an illusion because of the  new car’s sharper lines and higher belt line (shorter windows.) As you can see the video embedded below, the new GT will be an evolution of the current models wonderful shape. There have been more frequent spottings of development vehicles recently, especially around the factory in Crewe. Stay tuned for more coverage as the 2018 Continental GT gets closer to production!
