The Coolest Car Ever




The Continental Supersports is the ultimate Bentley: the fastest and most powerful Bentley ever produced. It is a supercar with two seats, that provides the owner high performance and a extremely focused driving experience. The Supersports is able of running on petrol (gasoline) and biofuel (this being a first in Bentley’s history), revolutionizing the use of FlexFuel technology in the luxury sector. This is a step that the company considers necessary taking in order to make its whole model range compatible with renewable fuels by 2012.

The Continental Supersports is purchasable worldwide since autumn 2009, and it will be FlexFuel compatible in the greater part of markets from launch with North American cars. The Continental Supersports started as a somehow secret project, Bentley testing the possibilities of weight reduction on the Continental GT but with more power and torque. This project lasted about 24 months, when it finally came to an end, presenting a new car program, designed by a small group of passionate Bentley engineers.

The Supersports sets new performance standards for Bentley: 630PS (621 bhp) and new 'Quickshift' transmission that halves shift times, acceleration from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds) onto a top speed of 204 mph (329 km/h). The performance of this supercar is completed by some improvements of the chassis, including retuned steering and suspension, utilizing lighter weight components, retuned dampers and anti-roll bars. The Supersports’ quickness is further sharpened by the 40:60 rear-biased torque split for the all-wheel drive system, a wider rear track, bespoke lightweight 20-inch alloy wheels and a unique electronic stability program.
