Bentley is enjoying its greatest success in decades thanks namely to its Continental range of cars. Less than five years ago Bentley’s annual output didn’t even reach 1000 cars, but today, the company is looking at delivering up to 9000 models. Engineers are now looking at the next line of models and would obviously hope to repeat that success once again.

UK’s CAR reports that the company is considering adopting Audi’s MLB platform that will be used across several Audi models including the upcoming A5 coupe and a new A8 sedan. The architecture utilizes a light weight aluminum space frame body combined with a new-generation four-wheel drive system. The monstrous W12 engine will carry over, which may feature in even more models including a new small sedan, shooting brake or four-door convertible.

However, the first new model to break cover will be the Havana Azure-based coupe that’s been caught by spy photographers recently. The 450bhp V8 is scheduled to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next year, which may also see the unveiling of an updated Arnage limo.
