The New Grand Bentley

The New Grand Bentley will have its first public showing at the famed Pebble Beach Concours d'Élégance in less than a month, but this didn't stop the folks at Car and Driver from coming up with a rendering of how the flagship Bentley will look like. Bentley itself has launched an elaborate reveal campaign filled with numerous videos and several teaser shots. Grainy photos of the flagship have also been snuck out of the Bentley factory. And a heavily camouflaged Grand Bentley was recently seen undergoing testing. Yet, these renderings provide the best look at the upcoming Bentley to date. Bentley has decided to shape its next flagship based on an evolution of the current Arnage instead of using styling cues from its hugely popular Continental line. The Bentley in the renderings has a general shape that's consistent with the recent spy shots. The vehicle pictured has elegant lines and styling that make it worthy enough to carry the Bentley badge. It is expected that the Grand Bentley will feature a thoroughly revised version of its 6 and 3/4 liter V8 with around 600 horsepower. Also expect it to be larger in size than the current Arnage and possibly almost as big as the Rolls Royce Phantom. It now seems that the only secret remaining about the new Bentley is its official name.
