Boy I hope this is a fake or a screw up or a bad trip. Some sly cat in Crewe managed to sneak some photos of the upcoming Grand Bentley over to CAR Magazine, and it looks kind of…odd. I tend to believe it since the fenders bare a strong resemblance to the original teaser image, and especially with three different colored cars all captured on camera. The headlamps are huge with LEDs on the perimeter. The upper grille says “I’m hiding a massive 6.75-litre V8″, but the lower grillework looks like an overdone Strut package. Click over for a peek at the rear and interior.
The rear of the car has a gentle downward slope to the boot with smaller tail lamps just like the Arnage. Interior details are few, but I’m sure it will be over-the-top and handcrafted to Bentley standards. Judging from the legroom in the back, rumors of the extended wheelbase not being available at start of production may be true. Look for the Grand’s big goofy grin to be unveiled at 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.
