Grand Bentley – the New Bentley ArnageWed, 10 Jun 2009 00:00:00 -0700
The New Grand Bentley teaser shot
And although the new Bentley won’t be with us on the roads until next year, Bentley has today started the inevitable long, drawn-out tease that precedes all car launches these days. And what is the new car to be called? Well, so far, The New Grand Bentley.
So we have a teaser shot of the front of the new Grand Bentley – all moody lighting and flowing lines. Less slabby-looking than the Arnage, but definitely not a beefed-up Continental GT. Thank goodness for that. We also have a teaser video, which shows absolutely nothing that the picture doesn’t, but is full of promise – Passion; Soul; Craftsmen; The Epitome of Bentley. Sounds good.
The new Grand Bentley has been designed at Bentley in Crewe and will be built there, so VW are taking no chances on anyone questioning the ‘Englishness’ of the Bentley. What engines will it get? Anyone’s guess. But we’re pretty sure it will get a modified version of the ancient V8 the Arnage has. But also on the cards is the 6.0 litre W12, the 6.0 litre V12 diesel from Audi and a bio-fuel or Hybrid.
Bring on the next tease.
