Morgan Midsummer, Bentley Continental GT: Today’s Car News

By 2 Min Read

Morgan revealed a stunning roadster designed by Pininfarina in the style of the classic barchetta. It’s called the Midsummer, and just 50 are planned, each as individual commissions. Morgan said the car celebrates the tradition of coachbuilding, and it also previews the next evolution of the firm’s design language.

Bentley has confirmed its recently revealed V-8 plug-in hybrid powertrain will debut in an updated Continental GT set for a reveal this June. The powertrain will deliver 771 hp in the Continental GT, which is 31 hp more than the highest tune of the twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine it replaces.

Tesla could face a tough time in China shortly as Nio has introduced the new family-oriented brand Onvo, whose first model is a Model Y rival that undercuts the Tesla’s price by about 12%. Nio isn’t stopping there, as it plans to launch another brand with EVs even cheaper than those offered by Onvo.
