The third-generation Bentley Continental GT is four years old. Thus, it’s considered a rather old product in today’s car world. The crew from Crewe is aware of this, and since this model is extremely important for the brand, the all-new one is right around the corner.
Bentley says the new fourth-generation Continental GT is due in June. The announcement came from Bentley in a short press release that also speaks about its firepower. Thus, the new luxury grand tourer ditches the brand’s iconic W12 motor in favor of a partially electrified eight-banger.

The V8 hybrid produces a healthy 771 hp (782 ps/575 kW) and 738 pound-foot (1,000 Nm) of torque. Thus, it is significantly punchier than the old W12, which was good for 650 hp (659 ps/485 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm). The 2025 Continental GT can also travel up to 50 miles (80 km) on a combined driving cycle, so it can deal with the daily commute in the all-quiet model.

Bentley's Ultra Performance Hybrid powertrain will be employed in other upcoming products, including the coupe and convertible versions of the next-gen Continental, as well as the Bentayga luxury SUV and the Flying Spur sedan, which competes against the likes of the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.

Besides revealing the unveiling date, Bentley has also released a couple of images of the 2025 Continental GT. The vehicle is in prototype form and features lots of vinyl stickers on the outside. The new Conti looks like an evolution of its processor. It has similar proportions, especially at the sides, yet the front and rear ends are where the visual magic happens.

Up front, it features large oval headlamps instead of the dual lighting signature of its predecessor. The grille looks about the same, and so do the side vents and lower air intake. The taillights are wider, and the rear bumper and diffuser seem a bit more elegant. The exhaust tips also feature a different shape, and the wheels seem slightly larger.

Bentley will reveal the full details about the new-gen 2025 Continental GT in roughly one month. We expect the order books to open shortly after the grand unveiling, and deliveries will likely commence before the end of the year. In our market, the next-gen Continental GT will probably launch as a 2025 model.

Now, if you're sad about the demise of Bentley's W12 models, you still have some time to buy a brand-new one. The brand's dealer network still has numerous such rides looking for new homes, and since the W12 motor is going away for good, it is possible that vehicles packing it might fetch way more than their original MSRPs in the coming years. So, which one would get your hard-earned money?
