When the 2010 Bentley Continental Supersports was released to the U.S. market, it was considered not just as the most powerful model from Bentley but also the greenest. At the time of its release, it was priced at $273,295 that includes the destination charge of $2,595, federal gas-guzzler tax penalty of $3,700, and carbon-ceramic brakes of $16,500.

The brakes had previously been made optional in other models. While this may seem rather pricier than the Continental GT Speed, which sells for $203,600, the power in the Supersports more than makes up for the price difference.

The twin turbo 6-liter W12 engine of the Supersports allows it to have 463-kW of power and maximum torque of 800 Nm. The Supersports can run on either E85 biofuel or regular unleaded petroleum and has an average fuel consumption of 16.3 liters for every 100 km.

It has a maximum speed of 20 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. The Supersports is an attempt by Bentley to come up with a clean car but not at the expense of its luxury and expected performance.

Thus the Supersports have Alcantara sports seats that are diamond quilted and made up of carbon fiber fascia. It is also has the 15-speaker sound system customers expect from a Bentley product.

The Supersports also has different features that give it a distinct look making it easy to spot. These include its front bumper with bigger air intake grilles than its predecessors; dual bonnet vents; new rear bumper retractable rear spoiler; and 20-inch wheels that are wrapped in the 275/35 ZR20 Pirelli Ultra High Performance tires.
