Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition-0

It is usually the top dog W12 version of the Bentley Flying Spur that gets all the special treatments, but this time they decided to show some love to the V8 S and came up with a Black Edition model which makes the luxury sedan look and feel a lot cooler. It does so through the addition a host of interior and exterior appointments. 

As the name Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition clearly suggests, the main highlights of the treatment have to do with black stuff. There are black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, dark tint and black bezels, and new wheels, plus three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel, stitched leather hide that frame the four seats’ centre panels, contrast stitching throughout, and Piano Black veneer inside the cabin. You are not, however, limited to black for the choice of exterior color.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition-00

Should these fail to satisfy your need for exclusivity, Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition can also be ordered with a number of Mulliner options, namely diamond-quilted hides in the seat and door panels, with contrast stitching for a more contemporary visual tone, and two 21” five-spoke Directional Sports wheel finishes in gloss black or dark tint. The car is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine that delivers 528 PS (521 bhp) and 680 Nm (502 lb. ft.), which propels the Flying Spur to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds), and on to a top speed of 306 km/h (190 mph).

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner

By now, you would think that Mulliner would have done just about every kind of luxury interpretation imaginable. That is at the heart of its job as Bentley’s in-house personalization division. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Mulliner turn Bentleys into works of pure art and opulence. You’d be surprised, though, how creative this group can get, and no more is that in full display than in its latest project, the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition.

Yes, Mulliner just finished another limited edition build for Bentley. Yes, it looks amazing. Yes, it takes its name from the Greek goddess of calm seas. And yes, it’s nautically-inspired, right down to the whole treatment in the exterior and interior of the convertible. It says a lot about the Continental GT Convertible Galene’s status as a decadent limited edition that even Princess Yachts, the creators of some of the most expensive yachts in the world, got involved in the project with Mulliner. The styling cues in the exterior and interior are indicative of what Princess Yachts does with its own expensive products, and you can tell by how the whole model turns out that it’s a Bentley that’s ideally suited for a specific clientele. Only 30 units of the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition will be built, too. That’s hardly a surprise considering the people behind its creation. Luxury begets luxury, and the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition is a physical embodiment of that.

Continental GT Convertible Galene-0

The latest limited edition version of the Bentley GT is inspired by luxury yachting and is pitched as the ultimate edition of this model in terms of luxuriousness and style. The Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene is built by the celebrated Mulliner division in collaboration with Princess Yachts.

Though they maintain Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene has taken inspiration from yacht design, the connection is only really seen in the choice of colors and to some extent the interior trim. That is why the car comes in Glacier White paint work and lower brightware in Sequin Blue, as well as dark blue hood and striking 21” polished Propeller Wheels.

As for the interior, it gives new meaning to extravagance making use of Linen and Portland hides with Camel hand cross stitching, the door panels are Linen, Portland and Brunel. Linen, Brunel and Camel accentuate the dashboard, centre console and armrests, whilst the steering wheel is Linen and Brunel with a Camel 12 o’clock stripe. There is also Glacier White stowage case and fascia panels as well as a unique handpainted Jaume Vilardell illustration of a super yacht alongside the Mulliner script in each car. Last but not least, Mulliner has created a new material finish – Pinstripe Walnut – which covers the boot floor.

Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene is limited to just 30 units worldwide powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 powerplant with 507 PS and 660 Nm.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne by Mansory

You’d be hard-pressed to find a tuner that has embraced the outlandish more times than Mansory. Run down its catalog of past of works and they’re all there for you to see. There are the Siracusa kits for the Ferraris, the Carbonado kits for the Lamborghinis, and while I’m at it, remember the Bentley Continental Vitesse Rose from 2009? Yikes. As colorful as Mansory’s tuning history is, we can all agree that it makes the kind of statements that very few of its peers in the tuning game are able to do. Which is why it is a bit disappointing to find out that its latest program – one for the Bentley Mulsanne – came with a headline that begins with “subtle modifications.”

The words “Mansory” and “subtle” should be mentioned in the same sentence about as often as the words “Reliant Robin” and “reliable” are. And yet, here we are, presenting a Mansory program for Bentley’s luxury limousine that doesn’t quite feel like something that the German tuner worked on its tuning laboratory. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of fancy carbon fiber bits and pieces here and there. It even has a notable power upgrade, which is rare in the aftermarket scene for a car as massive as the Mulsanne. But since this is Mansory we’re talking about, there’s a level of audacious expectation that has to be met, one that I this program wasn’t able to reach. I don’t think it’s a sign that the tuner is slowing down on the imagination aspect of the game, so it does make me wonder if this is Mansory’s way of showing a side of itself that we rarely get to see.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne Gets Mild Upgrades from Mansory and Startech

mansory-mulsanne-0

A car of Bentley Mulsanne‘s class and prestige does not really need modifications and upgrades, mainly because it’s like getting a Cartier watch and then spray painting the bezel. But for those who aren’t satisfied with the car in standard guise, there are now some mild upgrades available from some big time tuners. 

These package are offered by Mansory and Startech, and while visually they are fairly similar – after all, there is only so much you can do to this car’s unique appearance without ruining it – the Mansory one is a much more through job in that it also gets a power upgrade kit and even an interior treatment.

Mansory Bentley Mulsanne comes with carbon fiber front lip and air inlet covers as well as side skirts, a rear spoiler lip, and diffuser insert. These are complemented with a set of 10 x 22″ “M8″ rims wrapped with ultra-high-performance 285/35ZR22 tyres for the front and rear axles. Performance-wise, Mansory Mulsanne gets a boost from 512 hp to 585 hp with 1,100 Nm of torque for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.0 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h. As for the interior, you can choose brushed aluminium, carbon, burled or high-gloss piano for trims, and special floor mats.

The strictly visual Startech Bentley Mulsanne gets the some sort of cosmetic upgrades with front and rear apron modifications featuring lip spoiler, side skirts, and diffusers, but somehow it looks more serious than Mansory’s car. It is almost good enough for us to ignore the performance and interior upgrades on the former offering. Almost!

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Bentayga Plug-In Hybrid

Introduced in late 2015, the Bentayga is Bentley’s first-ever SUV. It’s also the most expensive and luxurious, factory-built SUV in the world as of 2017, as well as the quickest to 60 mph and the fastest in terms of top speed thanks to its brand-new, 600-horsepower W-12 engine. In 2016, the Bentayga also became the first Bentley to use a diesel engine, something that seemed incredible a few years back. Come 2017, and the rumors that the British firm is also working on a hybrid drivetrain for the SUV have been confirmed by a new prototype that was spotted testing in the wild.

Sporting an additional “fuel” cap, this test car was also registered with the British licensing agency as a hybrid vehicle, so there’s no doubt that Bentley is indeed stepping into the electrified territory. What’s still a mystery is the drivetrain, although I’m very positive that the electric motor is paired to a Porsche-sourced V-6 gasoline engine. There’s no word as to when it will break cover, but it’s safe to assume that Bentley’s first hybrid will show itself to the world by the end of 2017. Most likely it will happen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur Design Series by Mulliner

Ah, Bentley. The purveyor of all things automotive luxury is at it again. As if coming out with a treasure trove of special-edition and one-off spectacles isn’t enough, the British luxury brand is sprucing up the Flying Spur with a new Design Series line meant to give the luxury sedan the proper limited-edition send-off ahead of the next-generation model’s arrival. Needless to say, anything Bentley does with the words “special edition” on it comes with the involvement of Mulliner, the automaker’s very own personalization department that also happens to be responsible for some of the most incredible Bentleys we’ve seen in a while.

The new Flying Spur Design Series certainly fits in with its exclusive-packed peers, thanks in large part to an extensive list of cosmetic add-ons that injects some life back to the current-generation Flying Spur before the car makes its proper send-off. And since Mulliner is in charge of putting the Flying Spur Design Series together, it goes without saying that customers should prepare for something out of the ordinary. Exclusive colors? Yes. New wheels? Right on that too. How about a carbon-fiber and titanium cabin? On that last bit, let’s just say that we’ll leave it to Bentley and Mulliner to make that happen.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental 24 Edition Celebrates Nurburgring Race

Continental 24 - 1

Celebrating their participation in the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race for the third consecutive year with three Continental GT3s, Bentley has released a new limited edition model. It’s called the Bentley Continental 24 and as you may have already guessed it is limited to 24 bespoke models for Europe.

Bentley Continental 24 is based on the sportiest member of the Continental family, the Supersports. Therefore, the limited edition packs a 700bhp W12 engine with 1000 Nm of torque which gives it a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h) and a 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds).

But what really separates this model from the “standard” Supersports is the cosmetic features inspired by the motorsport version. On the outside Bentley Continental 24 comes with Monaco Yellow over Black Crystal from Bentley Team ABT Continental GT3 race car, or you can have it in St James’ Red over Black Crystal. These are complemented with black 21” lightweight forged wheels that can be finished with yellow or red accents to match the paintwork. You also get carbon fibre door mirrors, black brake calipers and all-black exterior brightware, plus gloss carbon fibre cover for the engine.

Inside the €250,000 limited edition features race-themed, replete with fascias, door panels and individually-numbered treadplates finished in carbon fibre, diamond-quilting to all four seats is in Alcantara, and “Continental 24” inlays fitted to the fascias.

Bentley Bentayga Falconry-0

While the new Bentley Bentayga SUV is not getting much love from the brand’s traditional customer base, it is doing marvelously in new money markets . That is why they go the trouble of making models like this Bentley Bentayga Falconry to cater to those markets and keep them around. 

The Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner is an “accessory” according to the car maker for the ultimate falconry experience aimed at the wealthy desert Sheikhs who are world’s biggest falcon enthusiasts.  The Bentayga Falconry features a bespoke installation in the rear which houses all the equipment required for an enjoyable falconry expedition. It also comes with some nice features inside that add to the luxuriousness and exclusivity of the super deluxe SUV.

The main highlights of Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner include a master flight station and a refreshment case, both trimmed in natural-cork-fabric and housed inside a  movable tray that allows for easy access. Inside the master flight unit is a special Piano Black veneered drawer – with a saker falcon crest – containing bespoke storage for all the equipment required for this unique sport. Beneath this is a laser-embossed Hotspur hide stowage tray with individual compartments for a GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars and hand-crafted leather bird hoods and gauntlets. And yes, Bentley does supply those as well.

If you are not interested in falconry, this Bentayga still has some features that might take your fancy. There is Hotspur-hide-trimmed interior panels, a removable transportation perch and tether on the central armrest, and an exquisite marquetry piece on the dashboard featuring a sweeping desert scene with a soaring saker falcon made from 430 individual pieces of wood sourced from all over the world and hand-crafted over nine days. Bentley did not mention the price of this thing, but given that it will be bought by people who can spend up to a $1,000,000 on a bird, cost is not really an issue.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Could Throw the Proverbial Turd in Bentley's Punch Bowl

A couple of years ago, Bentley surprised us all by showing off the 2015 Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept, a delicious-looking coupe with a bold design and more character than a Stephen King Novel. Then, just a couple of years later, Bentley found itself in the same place, only this time with the 2017 EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept. It had the bold styling of the first concept, but this time it was said to have an electrified drivetrain and unlimited headroom. The business case has been made, and the masses have shown lots of interest in such a model, but the Volkswagen Group could keep the Bentley two-seater from ever seeing production.

See, since Bentley is a part of the dirty VAG (pun intended,) it has to be careful when it comes to intergroup competition, and with the Audi R8 being a big model for Audi, VAG may not approve of the EXP in production form. In an interview with Motoring, Uday Senapati – the Head of Technical Operations at Mulliner – said, “From within Bentley, definitely yes [there’s momentum]. But we’re part of a big group, and it has to work with the rest of the group… Because we are a portfolio of brands, we can’t be overtly competing against each other.” When asked if a direct competitor to the R8 was off limits, he responded with, “Exactly. So if we can create a niche segment for it, then yes [we can do it].”

So, with that said, Bentley can’t just go the usual route with the two-seater if it’s ever to see production, but that doesn’t mean all is lost. Keep reading to find out.


PostHeaderIcon Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept

There once was a time when Bentley was synonymous with British opulence and luxury. That notion still holds true to this day, but Bentley, like everybody else it seems, has evolved into something more than that. These days, the flying “B” has expanded its reach in the automotive landscape with two recent concept offerings showcasing the future of the company as a creator of sporty and aggressive electric sports cars. We first saw how that looked with the debut of the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and a year later, the Crewe-based, British automaker returned to Geneva to bring the coupe’s convertible counterpart, the EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept.

Part electric car, part luxury car, and part sports car, the EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept can probably be best described as the love child of all these segments, created and developed to showcase part of Bentley’s future in the event it decides to go down this road. The company has said that it plans to do just that and is convinced that an all-electric sports car like the EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept can be built without comprising the company’s long-standing tradition of class and luxury. Sounds like the company’s reaching, but remember, we’ve been down this road before.

After all, this is the same company that people scoffed at when it said that it wanted to build an SUV and yet, here we are in 2017, and the Bentayga is making a pretty good case for itself as one of the best luxury SUVs on the market today. That’s not to say that Bentley is going to follow a similar blueprint with the development of the EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept, but the bigger point here is that Bentley has successfully gotten out of its comfort zone, so there’s no reason for it not to dive into more unchartered waters.

Whether it’s the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept or the EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept, the days of brushing off Bentley’s ability to spread its wings are long gone. At this point, if it says that it’s committed to building an electric car and it has a concept car that it can use to base a future electric car from, taking the company’s word for it would be a far better option than dismissing it again entirely. We don’t know what the EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept is going to amount to, but the fact that it made its debut in Geneva earlier this month speaks to the possibilities of seeing it in production form down the road.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne Hallmark Series by Mulliner

Introduced in 2010 as a replacement for the 11-year-old Arnage, the Mulsanne is currently Bentley’s range-topping sedan, sitting above the Continental Flying Spur in the lineup. The limousine received an equipment update in 2013 and various special-edition versions, including a performance-oriented Speed model until 2016, when a mid-cycle facelift was launched. Come 2017 and Bentley introduced the Mulsanne Hallmark Series by Mulliner, arguably the most exquisite limited-edition based on the full-size sedan yet.

Described as a highly exclusive model “inspired by the finest precious metals and luxury materials used by the very best jewellers,” the Hallmark Series is available across the entire Mulsanne range, meaning it can be ordered for the extended wheelbase model too. Marketed as the “ultimate statement of luxury” in the Bentley family, the limited-edition model is quite the flamboyant proposition, being available in two-tone paint finishes and with either silver or gold highlights. A bit too flashy if you ask me, but I’m sure this model will be extremely popular in the Middle East where silver an gold emblems are a big thing.

The Mulsanne Hallmark Series by Mulliner makes its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, so make sure you stick around for photos from the event.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Bentayga Mulliner

British-based luxury automaker Bentley first introduced its Bentayga SUV in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with production ramping up in November of that same year. As the brand’s first-ever SUV, the launch of the Bentayga was anything but timid. Bentley frames the Bentayga as the most luxurious, fastest, and most expensive SUV in the world. Indeed, in this segment, it takes a lot to stand out, but even when the vehicle in question is drenched in luxury and speed and totes an asking price approaching a quarter-million dollars, some customers simply need more. Enter Mulliner, Bentley’s self-described “in-house personal commissioning division,” which was called upon to add bespoke touches and even more opulence to the already-over-the-top SUV. Just how indulgent did Mulliner get? Here are some highlights – new color schemes for the interior and exterior, hand-stitched embroidery for the seats, an onboard refrigerator, crystal champagne flutes, custom china cutlery, and a solid gold clock studded with diamonds. Yep, it’s that kind of SUV.

While certainly eye-raising to most, this list of upgrades is pretty much on par with other custom Bentleys we’ve seen in the past. But of course, the British brand is happy to pull heavily from its list of superlatives when describing this thing, with phrases like “the ultimate luxury SUV” setting the tone. Basically, the Bentayga Mulliner is Bentley’s new flagship utility vehicle, slated as the “most exquisitely appointed luxury SUV ever created,” something that “will appeal to owners searching for the pinnacle of go-anywhere motoring, with the finest performance and comfort.”

Again – you gotta be bold when playing for the top of the heap. Read on for the details on why Bentley thinks this is the best that money can buy.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental GTC

Although the Bentley Continental GT has being sold in its second-generation specification since 2011, the British grand tourer is actually 13 years old as of 2016. That’s not to say that the Continental GT is a dated vehicle, but it definitely needs an overhaul in order to keep up with the competition. That’s expected to happen in 2017, when Bentley is rumored to roll out the third-generation Conti GT in both coupe and convertible body styles.

Having already discussed the coupe when the first prototypes were spotted in the wild back in February 2016, we will now take a closer look at the drop-top GTC model, which also hit the streets in pre-production form. Much like all test cars wrapped in camouflage, this prototype does a great job hiding the more important exterior bits, but it also provides a few hints as to what we may see in dealerships for the 2018 model year.

I also know that Bentley used the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept as inspiration and that the new Continental GT will ride on a new platform shared with the second-generation Porsche Panamera. The MSB platform provides further hints as to what will motivate the upcoming grand tourer, but more about that in my speculative review below.

Updated 02/15/2016: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Continental GTC out for a new testing session.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Bentayga Gigante by DMC

The Bentley Bentayga is slowly but surely making an impression in the tuning scene. The high-performance luxury SUV only made its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and we’re now seeing aftermarket companies unveiling their tuning kits for the Bentayga. Mansory got the ball rolling at the 2016 SEMA Auto Show and DMC has just followed suit with the “Gigante” program that helps enhance the Bentayga’s output to 700 horsepower and 778 pound-feet of torque.

The “Gigante” name is pretty self-explanatory when you take into account the number of modifications DMC made to the body and engine of the Bentayga. In fact, if you go back to Mansory’s own program for the SUV, you’ll see plenty of similarities as far as the scope of the upgrades are concerned. There are exterior changes, interior upgrades, and engine enhancements. Even better, these modifications aren’t extravagant to the point that they take away from the Bentayga’s own luxury characteristics.

That’s not only a testament to the ingenuity of DMC and Mansory, but also to Bentley for creating a product that has proven to be worth all the hype it has received.

Soon enough, we’re going to see more tuners develop kits for the Bentley Bentayga. That’s not a question of “if,” but “when.” For now though, Mansory and DMC headline the list of tuners with existing programs and the latter’s Gigante kit for the SUV appears to have all the tools to be worth the look, that is if you’re looking to get more out of the Bentayga than what it already has.

The second-generation Bentley Continental GT arrived in 2011 with a mildly redesigned exterior, a new interior, and upgraded technology. Although it uses the same Volkswagen Group D1 platform (shared with the Phaeton and the Bentley Flying Spur), the second-gen Conti GT gained a revised W-12 engine and a brand-new, twin-turbo V-8. Much like its predecessor, the second-gen Continental GT spawned a number of versions, including V8 and W12 trims, convertibles, the higher-performance GT Speed, a race-spec GT3 model, and a road-going GT3-R. In early 2017, Bentley unveiled the Supersports, a successor to the beefed-up model it first introduced in 2009.

The fact that the Supersports arrived almost six years after the second-generation Continental GT went into production isn’t surprising. The first Supersports was launched by a similar schedule, hitting public roads six years after the standard model and two years before the first generation car was discontinued. With the current luxury two-door set to be replaced by a third-gen car sometime in 2018, the Supersports was once again introduced as the ultimate Continental GT.

Just like its predecessor, the new range-topping coupe is the fastest and most powerful Continental GT released to the date. The same goes for its soft-top sibling, which is only marginally slower from 0 to 60 mph.

“The Supersports name is legendary at Bentley. From the very first Supersports of the 1920s, to the Continental Supersports of 2009 – and now with the third iteration of this iconic model – it is a name which excites, impassions and thrills. Only Bentley could create a car which blends immense performance and unrivalled luxury in this way,” said Wolfgang Durheimer, chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors.

PostHeaderIcon The Bentley Continental Supersports Is The Continental Variant We've All Been Waiting For

Bentley promised to introduce the “most extreme” car it has ever developed, and true to form, the British luxury marque (or is it a performance brand now?) delivered in spades with the debut of the Continental Supersports, a 700-horsepower piece of viciousness that combines everything we love about the Continental line into one stunning coupe.

The sheer look of the Continental Supersports validates the exotic label being thrown around to describe it. Not only does it looks like a proper performance car (dare I say, maybe even a supercar?) but it does so by taking the already aggressive styling of the slightly less potent Continental GT3-R and cranks it up to another level. Take a look at those redesigned bumpers and the more discernible body lines that give it that racy look to it. And that fixed rear wing at the back? My oh my, this beauty is a sight to behold.

As aggressive as the Supersports looks, it’s real calling card lies underneath that hood, where a 6.0-liter W12 engine with higher-capacity turbochargers resides. That tweaked engine is good for 700 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque, making it the first Bentley ever to carry a factory output of at least 700 horses. That’s no small feat for a company that made its name in the world of automotive luxury.

Speaking of which, the Continental Supersports isn’t all just about power and speed, although we certainly don’t mind having those two departments being the talk of the car. True to its roots, the most extreme Continental is also a picture of luxury, thanks to an interior that’s been designed and dressed to the nines.

We’re going to have a more comprehensive review of the Bentley Continental Supersports up soon so don’t sweat on the broad strokes look of the car we have for now. In the meantime, take a look at this gorgeous piece of work and appreciate Bentley for giving the second-generation Continental the swan song it deserves.

PostHeaderIcon Is The Bentley Continental Supersports Making A Dramatic Return?

When the name Bentley is mentioned, it traditionally evokes images of luxury, elegance, and class. These are the foundations by which the British car brand built its name and for as long as it’s around, these words will continue to be mentioned in the same breath as the company. On the other hand, a word like “extreme” is rarely mentioned alongside Bentley, which is why this new teaser that the automaker released is pretty darn significant, and all it took is this one very telling description.

“The most extreme Bentley ever…is coming.”

Now before anybody starts hyperventilating, it’s important to ask which model Bentley is actually referring to. We know that the all-new Continental GT is expected to make its debut in the second half of 2017. It’s unlikely that this is going to be that model because the unveiling has been set for January 6, 2016. That’s two days from now.

So it’s unlikely to be the all-new Continental GT. That brings us to the current Continental GT, which will make way for its successor soon. Could it be that Bentley is preparing to give the current Continental GT model a proper send-off in the form of an extreme version of itself?

Looking at the automaker’s history, there is one model that’s been noticeably absent from the Continental lineup and if past versions of that variant are indications of what we can expect, there is a possibility that we could be looking at the return of the Supersports here.

Obviously, there’s been no confirmation from Bentley’s part about that speculation, but it does make sense considering that the last Supersports variants – the coupe and convertible – hit the market in 2009 and 2010, or right around the tail end of the first-generation Continental GT’s life with the second-generation Continental arriving in 2011. Follow that schedule and we’re due for the return of the Supersports variant.

Now about the teaser video itself. There’s not much going on there other than a few close-ups of the car in question, although if you look closely, there is one shot that shows what appears to be a fixed rear wing, a feature we haven’t seen from a production Bentley since the Continental GT3-R.

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too long to get some answers because the car’s debut is happening in two days. Buckle up.
