The Continental Supersports Convertible further strengthens Bentley’s supercar range, following the introduction of the Continental Supersports Coupe in 2009.
The new Supersports Convertible, with the same 621 hp twin-turbocharged W12 engine, is the fastest, most potent droptop Bentley has ever built, offering the ultimate Bentley driving experience in the world’s most dramatic convertible.
The new, muscular four-seat Supersports Convertible is unmistakably Bentley in its design and craftsmanship but its interior signifies a dramatic reinterpretation of Bentley luxury.
Satin-finished carbon fibre, Alcantara and Soft Grip leather create a unique ambience with a distinctly sporting and contemporary style.
All models in the Continental model range, including the new Supersports Convertible, are now capable of running on both gasoline and E85 bioethanol or any combination of the two, reaffirming Bentley’s ongoing commitment to make all its cars biofuel-compatible by 2012.
Pioneered by the Supersports Coupe, this FlexFuel technology offers a reduction of up to 70 per cent in CO2 emissions on a well-to-wheel basis, a measure of a fuel’s net contribution to the atmosphere, not just tailpipe emissions.
To ensure seamless power delivery, the on-board fuel supply system detects the blending ratio of the fuel in the tank and ensures that power and torque remain constant regardless of the ratio of gasoline to biofuel.
