The 2011 Bentley Continental GT is being launched in Oman right now, and Bentley has gathered a gaggle of shots of its latest super coupe tanning in the Middle Eastern sun. The second generation of the monstrously powerful and just-as-luxurious two-door will have the familiar 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 engine up front, but from next year it will putting out 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. You can probably expect the bottom line number on the order form to be increased as well.
Still, for those in search of a frugal-er conveyance that still retains Caesar's comforts, a V8 Continental will come on line next year and it's rumored to produce somewhere around 550 horses from its twin-turbo Audi motor. Or hey, there's no reason you can't get the V12 for yourself and the V8 for your assistant, right?
