These amazing shots show exactly how, the facelifted 2012 Bentley Continental will looklike. On the front there’s a more upright grille while the lower bumper has been reprofiled to include a wider air intake. Also, a news set of headlamps with integrated led daylight running light will be used.
Under the hood, the new Continental will use the new VW Group 6.3 Liter W12 engine – engine that was unveiled for the first time on the new Audi A8 W12L.
On the A8, The 6.3 FSI engine has an output of 368 kW (500 hp) and delivers its peak torque of 625 Nm (460.98 lb-ft) at engine speeds at 3,250 rpm. It gives the long-wheelbase Audi A8 the kind of performance normally expected of a sports car: it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in only 4.9 seconds and effortlessly reaches its governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).
On the new Continental, the engine will provide most probably around 600 hp ( actual Continental has 550 hp )
Expect to pay around £135,000 for the Continental GT when it goes on sale before the end of the year.
