2018 Bentley Continental GT Review

Recently, our spy photographers captured the 2018 Bentley Continental GT doing its testing runs. First, it was the coupe and now they captured its convertible sister but wearing heavy camouflage of course. Both models will be showcased next year as 2018 models. The new model’s exterior draws its inspiration from the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept the automaker revealed in 2015 during the Geneva Auto show.

Considering the Continental GT was just updated for 2016, the all-new model probably won’t debut until 2017 for the 2018 model year, which means it will be coming at a time when a lot of new customers are about to make their way into the Bentley showrooms thanks to the all-new Bentayga SUV. When it does arrive, expect the redesigned Continental GT coupe to eventually spawn the familiar lineup of models, including the GT Speed, Convertible and Flying Spur sedan.

2018 Bentley Continental GT Price

Pricing for the new 2018 Bentley Continental GT has been set at $193,500 – $200,000 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2018 Bentley Continental GT we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.

2018 Bentley Continental GT Specs

The model is based on a new platform dubbed, the MSB platform. This platform is a joint venture between Bentley and Porsche and as such will be used in a stretched form in the upcoming Porsche Panamera. In fact, test mules of the Continental GT were disguised in the current short-version Panamera body shell. The automaker revealed that the structure will be built with high-strength steel while the body panels will largely be made from aluminum. As such, the new model will be significantly lighter than the outgoing one.

What we are will be in the model’s cabin is the dual-brow instrument panel and quilted leather upholstery on seats and door panels.

The model may also use a huge central display screen similar to the one on the Tesla Model S. The automaker could also decide to use a 3-spoke steering wheel to add more beauty to the cabin. The model will accommodate 4 passengers in a 2+2 seating arrangement. More information will be available when the model nears its on sale date.

As said above, the visual of the 2018 Bentley Continental GT is inspired by the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept. Some of the features adopted form the EXP 10 Concept includes its headlights which feature floating-like LEDs. Though this design of lighting has been a common feature for the Bentayga, the design on this Continental GT is the best yet.

Switching gears to the rear, you will notice the model’s oval-shaped taillights and new exhaust tips similar to the ones on the EXP 10 Speed 6. Most of the model’s other body parts were hidden under a plastic body leaving only the greenhouse exposed. Overall, the prototype doing test runs sits closer to the ground than the outgoing model. The prototype features muscular rear haunches which make it appear as if it’s slightly wider than the current Continental GT.

2018 Bentley Continental GT Engine

Bentley has not revealed engines that will power the new Bentley Continental GT. However, the models will likely use the current V-8 and W-12 engines. Perhaps the automaker will tweak the engine for more power output. The 4.0 L, twin-turbocharged V-8 mill will be tweaked to produce around 550 hp.

Porsche is overseeing the development of the platform, which thanks to increased use of lightweight materials such as high-strength steel and aluminum in its construction should result in significant weight savings for the new Continental. The platform will also end up in a next-generation Flying Spur.

Bentley’s new Continental should once again offer both W-12 and V-8 engine options. While it’s unlikely we’ll see a diesel engine fitted to the car, a plug-in hybrid option is expected this time around. The W-12 should be the only option at launch. It will be the new twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 with direct fuel injection that made its debut in the 2017 Bentley Bentayga. Factor on an output of at least 600 horsepower, up from the 582 hp found in the latest 2016 model.

The 6.0 L, W-12 on the other hand is expected to be tweaked to produce around 635 hp up from the current 582 horses. There are rumors of a hybrid drive-train for the 2018 model but Bentley is yet to confirm or deny the rumors.
