Bentley has dropped a new batch of images and driving footage (strangely enough, audio-less) of the new Continental Supersports Convertible shot on location in Colorado. Unwrapped at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March, the soft-top version of the E85-compatible Continental Supersports coupé is said to be fastest convertible ever to roll out of Crewe's factory going from zero to 60mph in 3.9 seconds and topping out at 202mph (325km/h). It features the same massaged version of the Continental Supersport Coupe's twin-turbocharged W12 engine that puts down 630 horsepower (621bhp) and 800Nm (590lb ft) of torque and is capable of running on both gasoline and E85 bioethanol or any combination of the two. Bentley's fastest and most potent drop-top ever goes on sale this summer, with prices starting at $280,400

With twin-turbocharged W12 power, the
finest materials furnishing the cabin and a powerful, bulldog-like
presence, the Bentley Continental GT, higher-performance GT Speed and near
track-ready Supersports have few peers. Combining effortless performance
with an interior that is the epitome of the coachbuilder's art, the
Continental GT is a prime example of a grand touring-oriented exotic luxury
The Continental's standard engine is a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 that pumps out 552 horsepower and 479
pound-feet of torque and sends its power to all four wheels via a six-speed
automatic transmission. With a 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds, a
quarter-mile performance of 12.8 seconds and a top speed approaching 200
mph, the Continental GT is a supercar in every sense. The Continental GT
Speed gets the twin-turbo W12 Boosted up to 600 and torque is upped to a
whopping 553 lb-ft.
The GT Speed was the most powerful automobile Bentley ever produced until
the introduction of the Continental Supersports, which cranks out 621 hp
and 590 lb-ft of torque. However, this power is matched to 100 fewer pounds
thanks to carbon-fiber parts and the removal of such items as the backseat.
Extensive retuning of the suspension and carbon-ceramic brakes allow the
Continental to display some semblance of delicacy and agility on winding
As one might expect, the Bentley Continental GT comes loaded with features.
Highlights include 19-inch wheels, parking sensors, four-zone climate
control, xenon headlights, adjustable suspension damping, 14-way power
front seats, a navigation system and a 300-watt, 12-speaker audio system.
In addition to its more powerful engine, the GT Speed gains 20-inch wheels
with 13 dual spokes, darkened chrome mesh grilles (upper and lower),
diamond-stitch leather upholstery, three-spoke steering wheel and other
upgraded interior trim. The Supersports sacrifices some of these features
for the sake of weight savings.
Options include the Mulliner Driving Specification Package (20-inch wheels,
unique leather upholstery and upgraded wood trim), carbon-ceramic brakes
and lumbar massage for the front seats. Adaptive cruise control, an iPod
adapter and a 13-speaker Naim audio system are also options, but for this
type of money, they should be standard. The Series 51 option of
pre-selected interior treatments adds "51" badging, 20-inch polished
wheels, three-tone interior color schemes, unique upholstery with
contrasting piping/stitching and exclusive wood veneers.
