The new Bentley has been spotted on the roads, with new design and features. Bentley is famous for its luxury cars but not for its sports cars. But these new cars prove to be a masterpiece for the Bentley. The 2018 Bentley Continental is available in two model variants named GT and Convertible.
Initially, it was assumed that it was Porsche Panamera, but after taking a closer look of the car it is very much cleared that it is Bentley Continental. Noticeable were the number plates that were registered to Bentley UK.
According to Express UK, the vehicle's lines and bonnet may have been inspired by the EXP 10 Speed concept that was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015. Also, a soft top has been chosen for the convertible model. Each of the car's taillights has an oval-shaped design element, which is again borrowed from the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept.
Both the 2018 Bentley Continental Convertible and GT will be powered by 6-liter twin-turbocharged W-12 that produces 600 horses. This is an impressive increase from the current model's 583 bhp. The engine is mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive, which comes as a standard. A plug-in hybrid has been confirmed by the company.
This car will debut in the current year 2017, both the variants GT and convertible. And the event in which this car will launch probably is Geneva Auto Show, which is going to happen in the month of March. But people get this car next year only in 2018.
