Bentley has officially unveiled the refreshed versions of the Continental GT and Flying Spur, which will be officially presented to the public at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The Bentley Continental GT has been updated recently as the range is getting a new front bumper, a smaller radiator grille, updated fenders, a new vent, more sculpted boot lid, a new rear bumper which is wider and the 20- and 21-inch wheels to contribute to the looks. The cabin of the luxury model has received the larger gear shift paddles, new storage compartment between the rear seats, new black gear lever surround, new dials on the instrument panel and so on.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the Bentley Continental GT W12 has been updated and the 6.0 liter W12 unit is now producing a total output of 590 HP (434 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft), which is more than the previous 575 HP (423 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. Despite being more powerful, the model in question has dropped its fuel consumption by up to 5 percent and this happens mostly thanks to the variable displacement system which is allowing the engine to run on just 6 cylinders out of the 12.

Besides the Continental GT, Bentley has also refreshed the more luxurious Flying Spur. The model in question has received some brand new 20-inch wheels, available for the V8 and W12 powered versions, in three finishes, along with optional 21-inch wheels. The interior design has gained the sportier design for the steering wheel, the contemporary graphics for the updated driver instruments, the WiFi hotspot system and several other tweaks. The W12 engine has also received the variable displacement system.
