The Bentley Boys aren't sitting around, resting on their plush leather laurels. Having just released the new Brooklands land-yacht coupe, it's on to the next project at Crewe, with the hot-selling Continental GT receiving a planned update..

The successful W12-powered coupe is scheduled for a complete overhaul in early 2010, but to hold sales strong until then, Bentley is planning to release a facelifted version of the current model by the end of this year. The updated Conti will get a few extra horses out of it's 6-liter W12 engine, bringing output up to 560hp, as well as some cosmetic changes to keep it looking fresh, including a revised front fascia and some new rims.

Although the surfacing reports say the facelift is due for the Continental GT coupe, we can expect the new features to carry over to its siblings, the already sold-out GTC cabrio and the Flying Spur sedan. Which, of course, means all those Fort Lauderdale yachtsmen, Hollywood movie stars and British footballers will have to be trading up.

      That over priced volkswagon.....er I mean Bentley "the most classic vehicles of our generation"? You got to be kidding. Future generations will be laughing at how much we paid for a reskinned $85,000 volkswagon!
      I live in Fort Lauderdale and laugh at the suckers who spent that kind of money on a "Volkswagon". Thats not a real Bentley. And no...I can't afford on, but if I could, I certainly wouldn't spend my money on that.

      The Continental GT will go down as one of the most classic vehicles of this generation.

      I see them tooling around LA and always am amazed with how beautiful they are.

      Hopefully Bentley won't make any changes that would distract from its clean, brawny excellence.

      Do NOT touch that car!
      It is awesome as is and needs no updates...

      I like the lines of the convertible better. A hardtop coupe version of the convertible would be one of the most beautiful cars evers made.
