2011 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible unveiled ahead of Geneva

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 29, 2010

As we expected, Bentley unveiled the new 2011 Continental Supersports Convertible ahead of the Geneva Motor Show as it did last year with the Continental Supersports Coupe.

The new car carries the impressive twin-turbocharged W12 engine capable to deliver 630PS (621bhp/463kW), same as the coupe, which makes it the fastest and most potent drop-top Bentley has ever built.

The Continental Supersports Convertible can sprint from 0 to 60mph in just 3.9 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds) and has a top speed of 202 mph or 325km/h. With these numbers, the car is also the fastest four-seat convertible in the world.

Regarding the design, the new convertible features the same kit as the coupe version (revised front air intakes and new bonnet vents to improve airflow and cooling; flared rear wings to accommodate wider rear track; discreet bootlid spoiler benefitting aerodynamic balance at high speeds) completed by the 9.5Jx20-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped in 275/35 ZR 20 Pirelli Ultra-High Performance tyres.

The new, muscular four-seat Supersports Convertible is unmistakably Bentley in its design and craftsmanship but its interior signifies a dramatic re-interpretation of Bentley luxury. Satin-finished carbon fibre, Alcantara and 'Soft Grip' leather create a unique ambience with a distinctly sporting and contemporary style.

Bentley also confirmed the fact that all its models from the Continental range, including the new Supersports Convertible are now capable of running on both petrol (gasoline) and E85 bioethanol or any combination of the two.

This is a demonstration that Bentley is tryong to make all of its cars compatible with the bio-fuel by 2012.
