According to the latest reports from Autocar, Bentley is planning to build more special editions of the all-new 2011 Continental GT, after the model will go on sale in 2011.

The 2011 Bentley Continental GT will go on sale early next year, and will carry a base price tag of $189,900 MSRP (exclusive of individual state taxes).

Furthermore, in the U.K. the car will cost £135,760 (pricing is inclusive of 20 % VAT (1 January, 2011), €154, 600 (doesn’t include individual market taxation rates).

In Japan, the car will be priced from ¥24,150,000. Under the hood, we will find the impressive 6.0-liter W12 engine delivering 575 PS / 567 bhp / 423 kW and 700 Nm / 516 lb ft of torque.

This engine can push the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds), to 100mph in 10.2 seconds (0-160km/h in 10.2 seconds) and to a top speed of 198 mph (318km/h). In addition, a new 4.0-liter V8 engine will also be introduced on the Continental GT lineup.
