The 2nd generation of the Bentley Continental GT

 In 2011 Bentley launched it's new model of the Continental GT, The 6.0 Liters twin-turbo W12 engine has been replaced by 4.0 twin-turbo V8 engine, and now it produced 500 HP and by that change it had lost 165 KG of weight.

One of the really cool things about the new Continental is that it has "Cylinders Deactivation technology" which effectively turns the V8 into a V4 to reduce fuel consumption by 8%.
