The Bentley Continental Supersports is the fastest and most powerful car in the company's 90-year history. It recently received the ultimate examination of its supercar handling and performance when Le Mans racing legend Derek Bell spent the weekend driving the 621hp Bentley at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The muscular two-seater, which delivers a 0-60mph sprint time of just 3.7 seconds and a maximum top speed of 204mph, produced a series of searing runs up the Goodwood Hillclimb, with Bell regularly pushing the car well over 100mph on a challenging course renowned for its narrow road and succession of tight corners.
Designed and built at Bentley's Crewe headquarters in Great Britain, the Continental Supersports combines extreme performance with the pioneering use of FlexFuel technology in the luxury sector. The 6-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine is capable of running on either gasoline, E85 biofuel or any combination of these fuel sources.
