After ten years with no Bentley Turbo R things will change

10 years ago the Bentley Turbo R stopped being present in the British automaker's range, but even since 2009 there was the idea of making a new appearance for the model. In 1985, the first Bentley Turbo R was produced. It had a V8 engine that produced around 350 horsepower and a suspension setup in concordance with that power.
So far there is no information on how the car will look like, but it's expected to have Mulsanne's 6.75-liter V8 engine that will produce 510 horsepower. The date of the official launch has not been revealed yet, but it's expected to be in 2013.
The model could be a coupe version of the Mulsanne so on the exterior, in the front it will have round headlights and a signature grille, like a limousine.
In around four years from now, Bentley will probably present a lot of new models and the majority will have lots of similarities with Porsche regarding the technical elements.
One of the models, the British automaker can present is the Continental GT, a five-door coupe that will cost around EUR170,000.
These are all just rumors and the solution to find out more, so far, is to wait.
