Bentley is in the early stages of development of an updated Continental GT.

A prototype has been spotted, and so far the only change is the internals of the lights at both ends.

The lights, especially at the rear, feature more detail, similar to those shown on the Bentley EXP 100 GT concept car unveiled in 2019 as a way to preview the automaker’s next-generation design.

The current Continental GT went on sale in 2018 as a 2019 model. Since then, several variants have been launched, including specials built by coaches sharing the Continental GT platform. These include the Bacalar convertible in 2020 and the Batur coupe in 2022.

The updated Continental GT is expected to go on sale in 2024, possibly as a 2025 model. Before it arrives, Bentley is expected to launch the Continental GT Hybrid.

The hybrid will likely feature the same plug-in hybrid system as the Bentayga Hybrid and Flying Spur Hybrid. The setup includes a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 engine and a single electric motor good for a combined 536 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. For future performance variants, the V-6 could be swapped for a V-8 with a more powerful setup.

Bentley will slowly increase electrification across its full range before moving to an all-electric lineup by 2030. The first electric Bentley will be revealed in 2025 before going on sale the following year.
