2011 Bentley Continental GT – Click above to watch the video after the jump

The all-new 2011 Bentley Continental GT was recently revealed online. Initially we only had pretty pictures to look at, but information comes fast and furious on the world wide web. We have gotten our hands on a video of the luxurious grand tourer doing what it does best.

The video (located just beyond the jump) is a bit low on action but high on design and style. These pictures and videos only serve to whet our appetite for some (heated leather) seat time in the new Continental. The car is set to make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show so be sure to tune in to our coverage of the entire event. We can't give this Bentley our stamp of approval just yet but details such as the 567 horsepower W12, a top speed of 198 miles per hour, climate-controlled seats and an updated (finally!) touchscreen have us leaning towards "huzzah!"

Click over to the jump to check it out for yourself.

      I honestly can't see much of a difference between this and the old model. I'm not complaining since I like the way the old model looked, but is this supposed to be a major redesign?

        JKool - the diamond stitching is very nice ... classic....no worries, that leather pattern is part of a packaged option...i'm sure will be available... can't wait to get mine...this car will still be striking in 30 years.

        I have been thinking the exact same thing. It looks like the just cleaned up the design a little by creasing a few of the edges and giving it an overall bolder, but still somewhat subtle, edge - though you wont hear me complain, I absolutely love the continental GT's old and new design! Wish they had kept the diamond stitching on the seats though, something about that was just attractive.

      It looks really good, I had the 08 continental GT and it seems they fixed most of the issues:

      - steering wheel - Im 5'10 and the steering wheel was too high for me
      - entertainment system (no ipod / no mp3)
      - no cup holder
      - back seats had no leg room

      The new headlights look great, it's faster than before (I didn't have the speed model) and it still looks as amazing as before. Totally considering getting this one now. I still think Bentley is doing a terrible job with their standard rims but well, the rest makes up for it, it's really a great car for the price in my opinion since this is an everyday car compared to most of the 250k supercars.

      Nice video, and the song is also a plus... Kinda wish I could've heard the engine though.

      You know I read that as "VW 2011 Bentley Continental GT out on the road"

      Something about those headlights remind me of the eyes of a spider, and that is NOT a good thing to be reminded of.

      I think it would have looked better with sharper lines above the headlights.
