Redesign 2019

Arriving in mid-2019, a redesigned third-generation Continental GT will ride on VW Group's MSB platform, which also underpins the Porsche Panamera. Power comes from a 6.0-liter turbocharged W12 that reaches 626 hp and 664 pound-feet of torque. Bentley has kept the nameplate fresh since it was introduced in 2003 with several variants. That won't change anytime soon.

Addition 2019

A convertible is likely to debut in 2019. Previous reports point to a Continental GT plug-in hybrid getting a V-6 engine from the VW corporate parts bin, as well as electric motors, battery systems, plug-in hybrid controllers and wiring systems. A Continental GT V-8 variant would be the next to follow.
