Speed and power


Virtuozity - - Auto News -

Bent­ley has an­nounced its fastest and most pow­er­ful pro­duc­tion model to date: the new Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal Supersports. Ca­pa­ble of go­ing 0-100 kph in 3.5 sec­ond and reach a top speed of 336 kph, it is the world’s most pow­er­ful and fastest lux­ury four-set car.

Sim­i­larly, its soft-top sib­ling, the Con­ti­nen­tal Supersports Con­vert­ible, is the fastest four-seat con­vert­ible in the world, dis­patch­ing the sprint to 100 kph in 3.7 on its way to a 330 kph top speed.

Pow­er­ing the Con­ti­nen­tal is Bent­ley’s mighty W12 en­gine which has been re­de­vel­oped with new high-per­for­mance tur­bos and en­gine hard­ware, as well as a torque vec­tor­ing sys­tem that makes the Su­pers- ports as ag­ile as it is pow­er­ful. These en­gine re­vi­sions have al­lowed the Supersports’ top speed to in­crease by 8kph.

As you would ex­pect there have also been changes made to the look of the Supersports with the new ad­di­tion fea­tur­ing newly sculpted front and rear bumper de­signs in­cor­po­rat­ing a car­bon-fi­bre split­ter and dif­fuser re­spec­tively.

Com­plet­ing the dra­matic ex­te­rior look are dark-tint head­lamps and tail-lamps, and a com­ple­ment of black-fin­ished bright ware to the front grilles, lights, rear bumper, door han­dles and win­dow sur­rounds.

As own­ers of Bent­ley’s have come to ex­pect, the in­te­rior is equally stylish. A unique colour split has been cre­ated, while a new di­a­mond-quilted de­sign is in­cor­po­rated in the seats and door side pan­els. The in­te­rior is com­pleted by new Supersports em­blem stitch­ing, and a be­spoke Supersports steer­ing wheel and unique gear­lever.
