The Bentley Continental GT is certainly no vedergewichtje’s clear being. Even the 2011 edition is released under the 2.3 tonne on the scales when it was dropped. Would therefore be a market for Conti who is both faster and lighter? Yes, we also think it is.

The CEO of Bentley, Wolfgang Durheimer, has told Auto Express stated that next year they call for a lighter Continental will respond. They put the luxury coupe on a strict diet with an estimated 200 kilograms from a need. There the change of course not, because the engine will increase significantly. The GT2 was added even more power gain than the antisocial quick stop Supersport Edition ( 630 hp ).

There is speculation about the upcoming 650-hp GT2, what exactly the most powerful road car ever built by Bentley. But what this power will be used is unclear. The current 6.0-liter W12 to the next level makes sense, but Bentley has also soon to be available on a much lighter-4.0-V8 that also this power should be able to come.

Another detail is not bad in the future that Bentley GT2 byebye says to the 4WD system and a rear-wheel drive would make of bandenvermorzelaar. Bentley Okay, you win. We have to. Bring it on the GT2, which we will then diesel Conti forgiven.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost of Sean Kingston is a set of alloy foxes charming. However, how they do it in a Bentley Flying Spur?

Pretty good. If I were to buy a Flying Spur (which I would not do), then this could be Vossens immediately below. The wheels are VVSCV1 with a silver frost finish. To the wheel wells, a little to fill them out in time for 22 × 9 × 22 and 10.5 behind. I like.

Today, the manufacturer has indeed unveiled its new Continental GTC. Five years after the release of the model, this version is actually a big facelift, like that of the Continental GT made ​​the end of 2010 at the Paris.

And as for the latter, the changes are not revolutionary. The lines are always fluid and aggressive. At the front, there is a new grid more impressive. This version also opts for optical LED and 20-inch wheels (21 inch optional). Finally, the hood of the cab is identical to the previous one, that is to say, prior to shrink the trunk.

Inside, it also follows the evolution initiated by the Continental GT. It is always the highest quality, with the use of leather and wood for the equipment. One can notice a new layout of the center console, a large touch screen, a new GPS and seats redesigned to save space without sacrificing comfort. Optionally, you can also take advantage of a heating system in the neck.

With a weight of 70 kg (total: 2 415 kg), the new Bentley Continental GTC offers superior capabilities to the old version. The 6.0-liter W12 engine develops now 567 horses (7 horses) for a couple of 700 Nm (50 Nm).

Bentley Continental GT gets a diesel V8

Bentley Continental GT 2011

Bentley Continental GT 2011Wolfgang Durheimer Bentley wants a twelve-making pioneer. Bullshit.

When it comes to diesel engines is at least. The V12 diesel Audi was like the V10 Volkswagen briefly fun but was not full. The twelve-W engine (gasoline) might still be the flagship of the brand, will continue to be filled the shelves with eight or even six-cylinder. Hybrid appears because a way into the British luxury brand.

The second reason for dropping the V12 TDI is its size. For years, there is a front W12 Bentley. A colossus but more compact than a V-engine with the same numbers.

With the announced plans for fuel and cost savings, there are currently two scenarios. The most likely: the Bentley Continental GT diesel debuts with a revamped
Audi 4.2 TDI. Now with 350bhp, later in the Bentley ( and Audi S7? ) good for 400 + hp. Nearly 100 horsepower per liter, as Audi’s new six-cylinder.

The six-cylinder belongs to the second scenario. Beyond the short term, the Bentley V6 TDI 313pk combine with a hybrid powertrain also announced.
Until then, the penny is turners have fun with a 4.0 V8 diesel in the CBT. Equipped with two turbochargers and two-thirds of the content a bit more economical than the twelve. He is ready. We probably see more of in Frankfurt. Fast diesels are totally.Bentley Continental GT 2011
