New 2025 Bentley Continental GT Debuts on June 25

New 2025 Bentley Continental GT Debuts on June 25

Bentley recently said goodbye to the old Continental GT with the last pure V8 version, the Edition 8. A week later, the British luxury brand is already previewing its new model, even though it looks like a facelifted version of the car originally launched in 2017.

Regardless, the company has revealed early images and technical specifications of the “new” Continental. As expected, the next Continental uses Bentley’s “Ultra Performance Hybrid” based around a V8 engine. The combustion engine and electric motor work together for a combined 771 horsepower and a massive 738 pound-feet of torque. These output figures are even higher than the W12 mounted in the Batur, which can make 740 horsepower and 737 pound-feet.

The unspecified battery pack will have enough energy for 50 miles of range in the WLTP cycle, so slightly less in the EPA test. Bentley’s most powerful production car ever is getting four-wheel steering and all-wheel drive with torque vectoring. Other features include dual-valve dampers, a limited-slip differential, and 48-volt electric anti-roll technology. These upgrades will transform the new Continental GT into the “most dynamically capable Bentley road car in the company’s 105-year history.”

Performance numbers have not been disclosed but it could be even quicker than the old Continental GT Speed. The defunct W12-powered coupe needed three and a half seconds to accelerate to 60 miles per hour from a standstill before topping out at 208 miles per hour. Speaking of the twin-turbo 6.0-liter powerhouse, production is ending with the final examples of the ultra-exclusive Batur. Should there be a new Continental GT Speed in the future, it will not have twelve cylinders.

Although weight is not specified, logic tells us it is heavier than the old V8 model after adding the hybrid components. Its predecessor tipped the scales at nearly 4,800 pounds, so do not be too surprised if it crosses the 5,000-pound mark like the old W12 did. That should not be much of a concern, though, since the Continental GT is a sumptuous luxury cruiser rather than an agile sports car to hoon around a track.

Bentley has confirmed the exact timing for the new Continental GT Speed debut. The luxury sports sedan debuts on June 25 at 11:00 Eastern Time. The automaker also released a new teaser image showing the front of the car uncovered.
