News from the front

Even the hottest cars, the most exclusive ones with the most traditional names and the highest prices need things as banal as a facelift if their manufacturers want to avoid a midlife crisis. And even these aforementioned cars need petrol at times – a lot of petrol that is. When both things come together, there’s time enough for our spies to take a closer look, grab the camera and shoot.

The result you can see here: the first shots of the facelifts of the Bentley Continental GT and Continental Flying Spur. Both will get slightly modified front bumpers and air-intakes plus revised interiors.

The 6.0-litres W12 Twin Turbo powerplants will be left unchanged though – no matter what the petrol bill and the global climate might say...
