Bentley Says 'Baby' Model Coming 2020

Luxury

A sub-Continental GT model and something more expensive than the Mulsanne could be with us by the end of the decade.

On the Geneva show floor this week, Bentley displayed the Mulsanne and the latest Continental models in the form of the V8-powered Flying Spur and the facelifted GT Speed. For now, the British marque has just two models in its lineup, but by the end of decade Bentley aims to have five showroom models including a smaller, entry-level model. After the launch of the Bentley SUV will come a next-generation Continental GT and Flying Spur. (Bentley has dropped Conti from the Flying Spur name, but it's not really a separate model).

Speaking at the Geneva Motor Show, Bentley Sales and Marketing boss, Kevin Rose, told Autocar that a baby Bentley wouldn't come before 2019. “Smaller doesn't necessarily mean cheaper,” he said, and while it would undercut the Conti GT, it wouldn't fall below the £100,000 mark – heaven forbid. Something more expensive than the Mulsanne is also on the table in the form of a £300,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom fighter to sit at the top of the lineup.
