Bentley is in the early stages of development for an updated Continental GT.
A prototype has been sighted and so far the only changes are to the internal parts of the lights at both ends.
The lights, particularly at the rear, feature more detail, similar to Bentley’s EXP 100 GT concept, unveiled in 2019 to preview the automaker’s next-generation design.
The current Continental GT went on sale in 2018 as a 2019 model. Several variants have since been launched, including bus-built specials that share the Continental GT’s platform. These included the 2020 Bacalar convertible and the 2022 Batur coupe.
The updated Continental GT is expected to go on sale in 2024, likely as a 2025 model. Before it arrives, Bentley is expected to launch a Continental GT Hybrid.
The hybrid will likely feature the same plug-in hybrid system as the Bentayga Hybrid and Flying Spur Hybrid. The setup consists of a 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 with a single electric motor and is good for a combined 536 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. A more powerful setup, swapping out the V-6 for a V-8, is possible for a future performance variant.
Bentley will slowly add electrification to its entire lineup before making the leap to an all-electric lineup by 2030. The first electric Bentley is set to be unveiled in 2025 before going on sale the following year.
