The best part about drawing a line in the sand is that it can always be erased and redrawn. Case in point, new Bentley boss, Wolfgang Durheimer has revealed that an even more powerful version of the Bentley Continental is in the works. The model will be called the Continental GT2 and will be about 441 lbs lighter than the current GT (5,115 lbs) with extra ponies to boot.

Durheimer didn’t want to spill the beans about what will be found under the hood, but it will either be the current W12 engine or the new twin turbo V8. Either way, the GT2 will be pushing out 650 HP making it even more powerful than the 621 HP Supersports model (pictured above). It will also be the first Continental model to feature a four-wheel-drive system.

The Bentley Continental GT2 will be built as a limited edition only and has been described by sources as "the fastest, most spectacular and most powerful road car Bentley has ever built."

"I definitely think there is room for a car with more power than the Supersport," Durheimer said. "I also think some of what we did with the Supersport in the past wasn’t quite right. For example, it should not be a two-seater. That layout should be reserved for the top-line cars."

I am not into white cars but this one looks neat, clean and eye-catching. It is not similar with those simple white cars I used to see on the roads. It has the sophisticated-elegant look a car must have.
