Bentley Continental GT2 coming next year

Bentley is not sitting around and doing nothing and after the luxury automaker has released the facelifted version of the GTC, it decided that the GT needs a new brother which will be named the GT2 and it’s expected to hit the showrooms next year.

If we would analyze the company’s new boss sayings, Wolfgang Durheimer, than the new model is expected to leave the current Continental Supersports in the dust. Sadly we don’t know anything about the engine that will power it or the performance.

“I definitely think there is room for a car with more power than the Supersport. I also think some of what we did with the Supersport in the past wasn’t quite right. For example, it should not be a two-seater. That layout should be reserved for the top-line cars”, said Bentley’s new boss, Wolfgang Durheimer.

Rumors are that the Continental GT2 will be a Supersport on steroids and the model could weigh about 2.200 kg and feature a 650 horsepower engine, but it remains unclear if Bentley will use the twin-turbo V8 or the W12. The GT2 is expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds while its top speed will exceed 200 mph or 322 km/h.
