New Bentley teaser

New teaser released as Bentley's Arnage saloon replacement nears unveil

The new car gets a new name, though (rumoured to be Grand Bentley), and is described as an all-new model that will celebrate Bentley’s 90th birthday. ‘The model is said to encapsulate the ‘1920s grand touring spirit of the Bentley Boys’ who dominated Le Mans in the late ‘20s.

Bentley’s new saloon has been developed entirely under parent company VW’s watch, and could gain four-wheel drive like its Continental GT stable mate.
