Two iconic and highly popular models from one of England’s most respected car manufacturers are getting a few upgrades for 2015, and we can’t say that we’re disappointed.
A press release issued by Bentley today has announced that the Continental GT and Flying Spur models are both receiving enhanced exterior and interior designs, as well as improved technology. The newly enhanced models will be revealed in person at the Geneva Motor Show March 3, and will offer more bespoke options than ever before.
The Continental GT‘s redesign aims to create a sharper presence while on the roads, with a smaller radiator shell, new front bumper and more pronounced fenders. The rear also receives some enhanced sculpting, and the V8 S and GT Speed will feature new diffuser designs to further differentiate them as performance versions. Three new paint colors are offered for the models as well: Marlin for rich metallic blue, Camel for a soft golden tone and Jetstream for a light, bright metallic blue.
Performance enthusiasts will be excited to hear that the Continental GT W12 has received some upgrades to its 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 powertrain. It features a new variable displacement system, a five percent increase in fuel economy and increases in torque and horsepower to 531 lb-ft from 516 lb-ft and 590 hp from 574, respectively.

Three separate finishes are available for the new 20″ six-tri-spoke wheels for the Flying Spur, and 21″ seven-twin-spoke wheels are offered for the Flying Spur W12 Mulliner, either polished or featuring a Graphite finish.
