The Continental Supersports is the fastest and most powerful Bentley ever. It is the extreme Bentley, a muscular two-seater that delivers supercar performance and a highly focused driving experience.
The Supersports is also the first Bentley capable of running on both petrol (gasoline) and biofuel, pioneering the use of FlexFuel technology in the luxury sector. This represents stage one of the companys commitment to make its complete model range compatible with renewable fuels by 2012.
Available worldwide from autumn 2009, the Continental Supersports will be FlexFuel compatible in the majority of markets from launch with North American cars offering the capability by summer 2010, following regulatory approval.
The Continental Supersports began as an under the radar project exploring the possibilities of weight reduction on the Continental GT but with more power and torque. A largely experimental process crystallised over a period of 24 months into an official new car programme, driven by the passion and enthusiasm of a small group of Bentley engineers and designers.
The results are dramatic. With 630PS (621 bhp) and new Quickshift transmission that halves shift times, the Supersports sets new performance benchmarks for Bentley. It accelerates 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).
Supercar performance is complemented by an array of chassis enhancements including retuned steering and suspension, utilising lighter weight components, retuned dampers and anti-roll bars.
Agility 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 programme.
Carbon ceramic brakes are standard fitment, benefiting steering response, grip and ride comfort, while saving weight. Overall, the engineering team have achieved a weight reduction of 110 kg (243 lb) compared with the Continental GT Speed.
Maybach vs. Rolls-Royce
Yes I know some of the slides went too fast just pause it and i also know that one of the Phantom pictures is an RR coupé. This is my first video that i made and it's about cars so tell me if you like it and if you do I will make another one with either Rolls-Royce and Bentley or the biggest rival Lamborghini and Ferarri. Tell me which one you think is better. Photos by google.

DRIVE Bentley Continental Supersports
So the standard Bentley Continental GT is too tame for you, huh? Then step up to the Continental Supersports. Not only is it fast, it runs on E85 fuel. If you have $274,000 kicking around with nothing to do, the ultimate Continental offers up more, more, more and a little less where it counts. Tom Voelk takes a look.
