Considered as one of the fastest in the world when it comes to production drophead, the Continental Supersports Convertible from Bentley remains to be the talk of the town. When it made its official public driving debut during the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2010, it highlighted its performance credentials as a supercar by making a number of searing runs on the famous hill.
Piloted by honorary ‘Bentley Boy’ and racing legend Derek Bell, the Supersports Convertible showed that it can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds with a maximum speed of 202 mph. With his expert knowledge of the course, Bells set a series of many rapid ascents giving the audience at the festival a lot to talk about.
In addition to the Supersports Convertible, Bentley also showed its 621bhp Bentley Continental Supersports which had originally debuted in the same festival back in 2009.
However, Bentley’s Supersports models weren’t the only highlight of the festival as it was also during this time that many were able to see the newest luxury flagship of Crewe, the Mulsanne.
While some cars often take for granted the interiors, Mulsanne boasts of a handcrafted luxurious interior that is combined with traditional wood veneers as well as leather hides taking about half the build process, or around 170 hours, to complete.
It also has the latest in interior car technology like its 220-Watt amplifier, considered as the most powerful in the world, which was made in collaboration with Naim Audio.
The two Continental Supersports models have been on sale since its debut in the festival. The Mulsanne on the other hand, is still on the market after entering full production in 2011.
