In this day and age, photos just clearly aren’t enough to show off what a vehicle is about. Five years ago, all we cared about were pretty pictures. Now, if we don’t see the thing in action we’re bored to tears. Thankfully Bentley is on top of things, treating us with a video of the all new 2011 Bentley Continental GT out on the road.
And much like how Bentley made the Continental GT to be for the market, the video has an emphasis on luxury and style rather than tearing up the streets and smoking up the tires. We would probably opt to see the latter, but we’ll just wait to do that ourselves when we get our dirty little hands on one. So overall it’s a little underwhelming, but certainly does its job in garnering more attention and raising anticipation for the car’s official debut at the Paris Auto Show.
We’ll safely assume that it’ll be just as refined and polished as the previous Continental GT with a little more for us to all enjoy. The refaced design looks just as good in the photos as it does in the video, and it already looks as if the beefed up 6.0L W12 with 567-hp and 516 ft-lbs of torque is a blast to drive.
