This is a tantalising glimpse of Bentley's new saloon.

The photo reveals a much larger section of the car than Bentley's previous teaser image.

Dubbed the 'Grand Bentley', few other details or techincal specifications are known about the Arnage replacement even its name remains unconfirmed.

Grand Bentley not a radical departure
You can see, though, that the new Bentley unlike it's key rival, the Rolls-Royce Phantom will have conventional front-hinged rear doors rather than rear-hinged 'suicide' doors.

The all-new model is expected to be wider and longer than the Arnage, but it's also clear that the overall shape isn't a radical departure - even though it's not expected to inherit any major parts from its predecessor.

A heavily reworked version of the Arnage's turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine will provide plentiful power, but also lower CO2 emissions and better fuel economy.

A long list of high-tech luxury and safety kit is to be expected, as is a pricetag of at least £200,000.

A full unveiling of the new car will take place in August at the Pebble Beach Concours D' Elegance in Monterey, California.
