Been holding off on that flat screen TV? What about that new watch? Go ahead… buy freely and don’t worry about your job, the economy is going to turn around any day now.

That, anyway, is the theory that British luxury car maker Bentley is putting forward… and counting on.

According to a report in Automotive News, which cites Bentley marketing boss Stuart McCullough, Bentley is so confident in the turn-around in the economy that it has moved up the launch of the next generation Continental GT to coincide with the surge in sales. The Conti GT, initially scheduled to make its way in to dealerships in 2011, is now scheduled to appear in 2010.

This would most-likely move the entire product range up a year, with the Flying Spur due out in late 2011 or early 2012 and the GTC (convertible) model arriving in 2013.
