A few months ago, our crafty spy photographers managed to snap a single shot of the next-generation Bentley Continental GT with all of its camouflage stripped away, revealing the Conti’s swoopy new shape and updates to the front and rear fascias. Now, our spies have returned with a new batch of shots, and while the car is completely covered in checkerboard camo, we can see the new GT from a few new angles.
Up front, Bentley has added new LED headlamps similar to those on the Big Daddy Mulsanne, nicely flanking the more upright grille and prominent lower air intakes. Out back, we see that the Continental uses a more sloped, hatchback-like rear window, though the dead-on rear view confirms that a standard-issue trunk will still be in place. Obviously, LEDs are the bulbs of choice for the taillamps, and we like how the revised rear design better highlights the Conti’s shapely hips.
The new Continental GT may be covered from head to toe, but we won’t rule out a possible debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Until then, scroll through our gallery for high-res shots of the new Bentley out on the road.
