Spied with Electrified Power, the 2025 Bentley Continental GT Convertible

The convertible version of Bentley’s upcoming Continental GT upgrade has been sighted as the most recent prototype. Additionally, previous observations included coupe prototypes.

As a 2019 model, the latest Continental GT went on sale in 2018. It is anticipated that this revised version will be on sale in 2024, which means the United States will probably get it as a 2025 model.

Based on the camouflage equipment on the test cars, not many design changes will be made. The internal changes for the lights on both ends seem to be the most important ones.

Although not much seems to be happening from the exterior, the engine is about to undergo a significant overhaul. April will see the end of production for Bentley’s renowned twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine, which will be last seen in the limited-edition Batur coupe.

A new V-8-based plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines Bentley’s present twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 with an electric motor built into the transmission is currently thought to be its replacement. Porsche, a brand under the Volkswagen Group, uses a comparable system in its Cayenne and Panamera, which can produce up to 670 horsepower. That is not far from Bentley’s W-12’s maximum 740 horsepower in the Batur.

The existing V-8 option for the Continental could perhaps be replaced by a milder hybrid. The arrangement most likely uses the same plug-in hybrid drivetrain seen in the Flying Spur and Bentayga. It has a combined output of 536 horsepower from its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 engine and electric motor that is incorporated into the transmission.

This decade, Bentley intends to electrify the entire portfolio. As individual models approach the end of their respective life cycles, electric substitutes will be progressively added. Bentley’s first electric vehicle won’t launch until late 2026, one year later. There’s going to be a new model line, maybe a crossover.
