Bent­ley hits pin­na­cle of per­for­mance and lux­ury

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE -

WEL­COME TO the fastest four-seat car in the world: the Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal Su­per­sports.

This six-litre twin tur­bocharged beast can man­age 60mph in 3.4 sec­onds and could on cer­tain roads hit 206mph.

Bent­ley call it the ‘pin­na­cle grand tourer’ and say it reaches new heights of sporti­ness, agility and lux­ury. It is avail­able as a coupe or con­vert­ible.

The open-top ver­sion be­comes the fastest fourseat con­vert­ible in the world, man­ag­ing 60mph in 3.9 sec­onds and has a top speed of 205mph.

Bent­ley’s mighty W12 en­gine has been re­de­vel­oped for the Su­per­sports with new high­per­for­mance tur­bos.

Mean­while, unique styling cues give the new model a sharp­ened ath­letic ap­pear­ance.

Wolf­gang Dürheimer, chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of Bent­ley Mo­tors, said: “The Su­per­sports name is leg­endary at Bent­ley. Only Bent­ley could cre­ate a car which blends im­mense per­for­mance and un­ri­valled lux­ury in this way.”

The car comes with a neck-warmer to make open-top driv­ing more com­fort­able.

Prices are not out yet, but the stan­dard Con­ti­nen­tal costs £150,500.
