Debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, prestigious watchmaker Breitling has collaborated with Bentley to offer this new super-sporty titanium timepiece to celebrate the ice speed record set two weeks ago by Finland’s four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen in a Continental Supersports Convertible.
Driving the all-wheel drive, biofuel-powered 6-liter, 12-cylinder Continental Supersports convertible, Kankkunen achieved a speed of 205.48mph.
Both the new Supersports ‘Ice Speed Record’ convertible and Juha’s record-breaking Supersports are on display on the Bentley stand at the Geneva Show. The new model will be limited to just 100 cars worldwide.

The new Breitling for Bentley watch powerfully complements the design of the Supersports convertible. With its light and sturdy titanium chassis, its dashboard-style dial enhanced by three ringed counters and its bezel with a typically Bentley-style raised knurled motif, the limited series evokes a sophisticated high-powered coupé car.
In tribute to its sporting qualities, Breitling has equipped it with an extremely intelligent and exclusive double-counter system, featuring a central minute hand and a twin-handed totalizer enabling one to read the elapsed hours and minutes at a glance just as one usually reads standard time on a watch.
