That said, the styling takes its cues from the concept car, so it should look stunning in production form. The redesigned Continental GT
will ride on Volkswagen’s MSB platform shared with the latest Porsche Panamera which should reduce a significant amount of weight thanks to its steel and aluminium construction, thus improving the handling. At launch, a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 and 6.0-liter biturbo W12 with at least 600-hp is expected to be available. Bentley is also planning to introduce a plug-in hybrid variant with four-wheel-drive at a later point. It will most likely use the same hybrid system as the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid
, which combines a 2.9-liter V6 gas engine with an electric motor to produce 462-hp.
