Bentley seems to again be following in the footsteps of its corporate siblings at Audi with the latest teaser video
for the upcoming Grand Bentley. Like the last teaser for the A5 Sportback, this one features the company's lead designer, Dirk van Braeckel sketching the replacement for the Arnage.

Unlike the Audi video, we don't get to see the full profile of the new big Bentley, although a bunch of other details are shown along with comfirmation of a spy photo that appeared recently showing the round headlights. Specifically, from the rendering glimpses shown, it appears that a smaller round lamp sits outboard and lower down than the larger main lamp. This is an element that hearkens back to Bentley models of the 1950s. We'll be getting the full story on the new Crew car in a bit less than four weeks at the Pebble Beach Concours where it will be revealed publicly for the first time. You can check out the video after the jump.

      Nice.
      I am not a Brit car fan.
      But I like good style and something that does not look like every other blob.
      That's why the 300(C) was a nice change for regular folk.

      I would bet all the money I've saved for a car like this (up to you to guess how much I've actually saved) that this photo is of the inspiration, not the yet-to-be-unveiled Bent- General Lee... The headlamp technology, alone, is enough to see that.

      I would also think that the boys at Rolls would have something to say about the vertical vanes on the radiator grille.

      "We'll be getting the full story on the new Crew car in a bit less than four weeks ..."

      I think you meant Crewe.

      Have designers completely run out of ideas? Did automotive design really reach its pinnacle in the 50s and 60s?
        • 5 Years Ago
        No, the thirties.

      Let's see. Seems good so far. I require at least 650 horsepower from my next super saloon.

      Oh wait, I cannot afford anyway.

      One teaser shows vertical grille slats... the older teaser shows mess grille. Looks like there could be a Speed version?
        • 5 Years Ago
        I believe the image showing the vertical grille at top (and the one used in the video) isn't a picture of the new Bentley. It's a picture of an older generation Bentley to show their inspiration. It's easy to see how this could be mistaken for a sneak peak of the new Bentley, though. I thought the same thing when I first saw this picture.

      Looks very retro.

        Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?
        • 5 Years Ago
        To everyone below stating it looks old: DUH. They are showing an OLD bentley, as inspiration. They do NOT really show the new one, at all. Use your brains people.

      this could be the real deal boys...

      I continue to say that this car will be super awesome and this only supports that further.
