After a slew of special editions and the recent spate of spy shots, the new Bentley Continental GT is finally getting ready for its big reveal at the Paris Motor Show, and the flying B has set up a microsite with a brief teaser video to whet our appetites for the big day.

As seen previously, the exterior revisions appear to be limited to a revised front fascia with a more aggressive air damn and a set of Mulsanne-inspired LED headlamps, partnered with a more sloping rear window and reworked taillights out back.

One feature sure to get attention is the navigation and infotainment system – a constant thorn in many buyer's sides – and a subtle redesign of the GT's interior. We don't have intel on powertrain upgrades yet, but expect a few more ponies to be pulled out of the twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine and a overhauled gearbox to be part of the package. Full details should be revealed in the run-up to the show this September, but until then, check the video after the jump and the gallery of screen caps below.

      I see they had to include the obligatory touchscreen nav. Perhaps Mulliner will let you optiion it off.

        You probably can't opt out of the navigation system because it is used to control important settings like the variable length carpet fibers, continuously variable leather suppleness, infinitely variable swirliness of the engine turned dash (for cars so equipped), the tire shine automatic applicator gloss level and choice between exuding old money class (for the country club parking lot) or new money crass (for the night club valet).

        Perhaps you could have Mulliner set the default screen of the nav system to show an image of an old AM radio and a map pocket?
