Our spies have caught new pictures of the facelifted 2011 Bentley Continental GT.
Undergoing testing in Germany, the updated coupe features a revised exterior with LED-infused headlights, modified bumpers, and Mulsanne-inspired taillights. Inside, we can expect new personalization options and, god willing, an improved infotainment system.
Under the hood, the current 6.0-liter W12 engine will likely be replaced by the 6.3-liter version which recently debuted in the 2011 Audi A8L W12. While the Audi unit only produces 493 bhp (368 kW / 500 PS) and 625 Nm (461 lb-ft) of torque, the Bentley mill should churn out at least 552 bhp (412kW / 560 PS) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. Backed up by an eight-speed automatic transmission (instead of today's six-speed), the 2011 GT should be able to eclipse the current model's 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds.
The car will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, so stay tuned to WCF for more information.
