Bentley dropped the first image of the new-generation Continental GT along with the announcement. The camouflaged offering reveals little on the new design detailing but does promise plenty of changes to the two-door, four-seater grand tourer. However, the new Contintental GT appears to be instantly recognisable with that sloping roofline, massive bonnet, and the massive grille upfront.

The Bentley Continental GT will use a hybrid engine bringing a small electric motor with the V8 engine. The automaker promises a electric-only range of 80 km, while the model will have a CO2 figure of less than 50 g/km, making it the cleanest Bentley of all. In fact, the carmaker says that the new CGT will be the most powerful and sustainable model from the automaker, while also being dynamically capable.
