The next-generation of the Bentley Continetal in both coupe and convertible forms has been spotted testing at Germany infamous Nurburgring circuit.
Design wise, the new Continental GT and GTC sport front ends similar to the EXP 10 Speed Six concept from the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The front end features the quad lights and big grille.
The new car looks to be lower than the current Bentley Continental from the sides and also features shorter overhangs.
The new Continental will be offered with both the 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 along with the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, though the engines will feature an upgrade in performance levels.
Also for the first time, the new Continental will be offering a plug-in hybrid version with a petrol turbocharged V6 getting paired to an electric motor.
The new Continental is expected to be seriously lighter as well, thanks to the extensive use of aluminium.
Also contributing to the lightness is the new VW group MSB platform, which is being jointly developed by Bentley and Porsche.
The new Bentley Continental is expected to launch in 2018.
