British luxury automaker, Bentley Motors Limited, has promised to debut a new model at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Bringing a great collection of racing and road cars, both new and old as well as some concepts such as the aesthetically challenging EXP 9F SUV, Bentley has its largest ever presence at the world-famous event, running from Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July.
The organizers list the Continental GT Speed as taking part in the event. It could hint a new version of the Contneintal GT, but at the same time, it could also be the last year’s version of the Continental GT Speed. Bentley has promised to release details about the mystery model in the coming week, but until then, what they said – the car will combine “stunning performance” with “exquisite luxury.”
Next to concept version of Bentley EXP 9 F (combination of luxury and high performance), and the mystery model, Bentley will also showcase Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification (MDS) (features sports tuned suspension and steering settings, distinct 21 inch alloy wheels and a premium Diamond Quilted Interior) as well as Bentley Continental GT V8 coupe (powered with 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine, capable of outpouring a peak power and torque of 507 PS and 660 Nm). There will also be a supercharged 1920s-era supercharged 4.5-liter Birkin Blower and the 2003 Le Mans winning Bentley Speed 8.

Other notable brands that will participate this event are Bugatti, Maserati, Toyota, Infiniti, GTA Spano, Zagato, Morgan and many more.
