The second generation of the Bentley Continental GT was revealed almost one year ago. Now the British car maker is rumoured to unveil the next generation Continental GTC Convertible at the upcoming 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Back in May, the new Convertible was spotted while testing at the Nürburgring. Like the coupe, the convertible will have similar design changes, such as a newly shaped body panels, a different front fascia and Mulsanne-inspired quad headlamps featuring inner lamps powered by xenon on low beam and LED on high beam. The rear has new sports squared off headlamps, new boot and a new rear bumper design with oval tail pipes.
The new Continental GTC will be powered by the same 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine as the coupe. The engine delivers 575hp and 700Nm of peak torque. In addition to the W12 engine, the new model will also be available with a 4.0 liter V8 engine.
The more powerful Speed versions and the Flying Spur sedan are still expected to come at some point down the road. These will without any doubt boost the global sales of Bentley, just as the new Continental GT did.
