I don't care what VW says, fact is that the new Bentley is basically the new Panamera as Coupe with Bentley badge, and that is all I care for.

Bentley badge, Porsche chassis and handling with AWD and AWS, Audi quality, what more can one want? Design wise I do not think much can go wrong either, as proportions are more important than styling.

Personally, I'd want Toyota quality/durability/reliability, but that will never happen in the VWAG world.

The headlight treatment is terrible. That can't be what they think will look good in production.

If the new Continental is anything like Speed 6 concept, it would not be a bad idea at all. I'm sure it will be full of lasers and other gizmos to woo their potential customers.

The prototype's headlights are ghastly and not at all like the Speed 6's more graceful treatment.

It looks much improved, but I still find the styling very heavy-handed and... GERMANIC.

Look closely at the destroyed headlight-camouflage on pictures 12 and 13 and you can relieve detecting that the car will obviously receive a similar design as the Bentley EXP10 Speed 6.

I expect similar headlights, although I must admit that on teh otehrwise good looking concept theheadlights were the least convincing detail (together with the large Bentley grille, that deosn't work with a low, more sports car like nose that well)
