Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Bentley's new flagship dubbed Grand Bentley, its replacement for the Arnage, was teased again. As you may know already from the leaked images,the new vehicle features dramatic proportions and an atypical twin-headlight arrangement.

For unveiling at next month's Pebble Beach Concours in California, the car features a pair of large circular LED headlamps that are situated high and close to the chromed grille surround. A pair of driving lamps is positioned lower down and towards the outer edge of the nose. This is a layout that takes its inspiration from the older generation Bentleys.

Under the grille is a chromed lower air intake that borrows the new styling of Bentley parent VW. It runs the entire width of the nose to emphasize the stance of the Grand Bentley. The new Bentley, which measures 5 meters long, features a lower roofline and softer body sections, when compared to its rival, the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Bentley, which sells itself as a sportier brand, opted for a rakish look with its relatively shallow window area, and its conventional rear door.

The all-new bodywork features a mix of steel and alloy components. Sparing no expense, the car boasts of the latest technology with the wiring loom, air conditioning and switch bases sourced from the VW parts bin.

The car uses a turbocharged 6.75-liter V8 engine but the major components are new. In fact, Bentley will ditch the Arnage name so as to emphasize that indeed all components are new from the ground up. It moves to an upper market, increasing its price to more than £200,000.
