Attention soccer players and sugar-daddies around the world, 2018 is going to be another expensive year for you guys. The Bentley Continental GT, the ultimate GT icon since 2003, will be replaced next year by perhaps the most beautiful car they ever designed. It looks retro and futuristic all at once and will carry all the levels of luxury you can expect from a Bentley. Strangely it looks to be a follow up to the Bentley Hunaudieres concept car, which they presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1999 (!).

So yeah, it’s a beauty, but how about the numbers? The ‘old’ one wasn’t slow at all, the original had a 560 brake horsepower V12 engine (that’s two V6 engines bolted together) and went from 0 – 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. The new one is expected to carry 626 brake horsepower, will do 0 – 60 in 3,6 seconds and will not stop accelerating until it reaches 206 mph.
Costs? Well, not too modest. The ‘old one’ went for approximately €260.000 so the new one will probably be in that range. But cheer up! The 2003 model occasions are on the market for around €50.000. So enjoy the video guys, in 2033 this beauty might be yours!
