2017 Bentley Continental Supersports is fastest four-seater ever built

British carmaker Bentley wasn’t joking when it said it would introduce the “most extreme Bentley ever.” Here it is, the new 2017 Bentley Continental Supersports. Aside from being Bentley’s most extreme model in terms of acceleration and speed, the new Bentley Continental Supersports is now the world’s fastest four-seat model.

The introduction of the new Continental Supersports shows that Bentley has yet to be done with the current generation of the Continental GT.

As we expected, “the most extreme Bentley ever” ultimately points to the Continental Supersports’ awesome performance on the road that could even dominate other four-seaters in terms of speed and acceleration.

New Bentley Continental Supersports will arrive in 2014 with 650 bhp

By sometime around 2014, Bentley will launch a 650bhp-plus Continental Supersports model as a new high-performance flagship coupé. This lightweight model will feature carbonfibre panels and stiffer suspension. It’s possible that its cabin will be stripped out. It’s also likely that its twin-turbo W12 will have a higher output.

In autumn 2009, Bentley launched a Supersports in advance of the run-out of the former-gen Continental GT. However, this new car will soon be a long-term element of this range. The Supersports will bridge the gap from the existing 616bhp Speed model to the much awaited road-going Continental GT3 with an output of more than 675bhp that Bentley hopes to launch in 2015 together with a race-ready Continental GT3 customer car.

The Supersports’ output will be higher than that of the Speed by 30bhp or so. This is comparable to what Porsche does to its models, which can be distinguished with small power differences. According to a Bentley insider, the Supersports won’t be about “pure power” since there’s a limit to the amount of power that can be extracted.

Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible ISR has limited run of only 100 units

Bentley released only 100 units worldwide for its Continental Supersports Convertible ISR. The ISR stands for Ice Speed Record and celebrates the world ice speed record for any convertible car which was achieved by Juha Kankkunen, a 4-time world rally champion from Finland, while driving a Bentley Continental Supersports convertible.

The convertible was driven by Kankkunen off the coast of Finland in the frozen Baltic Sea, and managed to get a top speed of 205 mph. Kankkunen set the new record by beating his own record of 199 mph driving a Continental GT in 2007. The Supersports ISR is available in three different colors that reinforce the muscular style of the Bentley, while the interior has leather and Alcantara-lined seats with a high-gloss carbon fiber with its own distinct red weave.

For customers who want a bolder appearance, they can request for the ISR Mulliner design package which is available at no extra charge. The package uses red-accented detailing and includes a bold ‘Supersports ISR’ graphics. The Supersports ISR can be ordered at any Bentley dealerships and is priced at £189,300, which already includes tax. The record was made possible not just by the excellent driving skills of Kankkunen but also with the features of the Continental.

Breitling unveils Bentley Supersports Light Body wristwatch

Breitling’s latest creation – the Breitling for Bentley Supersports Light Body – will have its world public debut at the upcoming Baselworld 2011 Watch Show. The sport-themed watch is offered in a very limited edition.

The watch is likely to be about 45mm (1.77 inch) wide and will feature an automatic COSC Chronometer certified chronograph movement inside. Its sportiness comes from the red and black motif of the dial, as well as the black rubber strap.

This watch will also use a rotating slide rule bezel. Juha Kankkunen had the Breitling for Bentley Supersports Light Body chronograph wristwatch on when he recently set a new world speed record on ice with a version of the Bentley Continental GTC Supersports. Kankkunen drove the car at 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h), breaking the record that was set by Bentley with a Continental GT in 2007.

The world’s fastest soft top allowed Juha to shatter his own 2007 world ice speed record of 199.83 mph (321.6 km/h) set in the Continental GT at the same location.

Bentley Motors' promise of a green vehicle that would have flex-fuel capability will be delayed. Many were disappointed with this news since Bentley had been touting that its fastest and most powerful model ever will make its debut soon.

The 2010 Continental Supersports car is estimated to be priced at $267,000 and will have 12 cylinders, 621 horsepower and boast a top speed of 204 mph. The 2010 Supersports was also intended to be the first model capable of running on bio-fuels like E85. However, Bentley encountered several setbacks and so the first Supersports to hit our shores will only run on gasoline.

Bentley representatives confirmed that various U.S. homologation red-tape and engineering challenges, such as the fitment of hardened valve seats, mean that the first 200 Supersports to arrive will not have the promised flex-fuel capability. Bentley assures though that subsequent Supersports will be capable of running on bio-fuel.

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.

Sales start in June for Bentley's new Continental Supersports Convertible the fastest and most powerful open-top Bentley ever. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, this convertible will cost from £178,300. Supersports models are known to be the most extreme interpretations of the Continental.

The name is actually derived from 1925's Bentley Supersports, the fastest and most powerful car of that era. Powering the car is a twin-turbocharged W12 engine, which produces 621bhp and 590lb ft of torque. From a standstill, it can get to 60mph in 3.9sec and to 100mph in only 9.6sec.

Top speed is 202mph. Power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed ZF Quickshift automatic gearbox, which cuts shift times to only 93 milliseconds and allows double downshifts.

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.

Finally, after few weeks from revealing the first teaser, Bentley unveiled today its brand new Continental Supersports, the first green car in the history of the British manufacturer. As we revealed you few days ago, the new Bentley features the 6.0-liter W12 engine capable to deliver 630 hp at 6000 rpm and 800 Nm of torque at 1700-5600 rpm.

With these numbers, the Bentley can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds while the top speed is limited electronically to 329 km/h (204 mph). The new vehicle features carbon ceramic brakes as standard but also 20-inch alloy wheels and a unique electronic stability programme.

But don't think the new amount of power comes without new modifications: the W12 engine necessitated additional airflow to the twin turbocharger intercoolers and cooling system and in order to solve this Bentley's designers responded with a purposeful and dramatic style that features large vertical intake apertures and twin bonnet vents.

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.
