We’re at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week, where yesterday we delivered the unveiling of the new Bentley Continental GT V8 to the world’s press.

The action took place on Bentley’s stand, where a film of the new model complete with countdown sequence built up the suspense before the video wall transformed into the grill of a garage, which rose to reveal the new twin-turbo V8.

And here’s the CEO of Bentley Motors Wolfgang Dürheimer outlining the new model’s vital statistics against the backdrop of more of our video content.

A big thanks goes to our friends at EWI, who built and ran the stand itself.
