We’ve driven, drooled over and loved the 2010 Bentley Continental Supersports. Now, Bentley has kept to tradition and released a convertible version straight after the coupe, making it the fastest four seat convertible in the world.
Packing the same Flex-Fuel 6-litre, twin-turbo, W12 engine, the Supersports Convertible produces a whopping 463kW and an immense 800Nm from just 2000rpm. 0-100km/h is done in 4.2 seconds, meaning sir will have to have some very strong double-sided tape under his toupe.
Even more staggering is the 0-160kmh time – 9.5 seconds – and then onto a top speed of 325km/h. This is the fastest and most powerful Bentley drop-top ever produced and in keeping with traditional Bentley style, it’s still built to perfection.
Taken from the GTC Speed, electrically control Continuous Damping Control (CDC) has been retuned to suit the Supersports, with other suspension upgrades included to keep the Supersports Convertible on the deck.
Cooling and design cues are taken straight from the coupe version, with one of the best things about any Bentley convertible being you can actually fit people in the back seats.
Bentley tells us to expect the Supersports at the end of this year, with a MRP price tag of $531,000.
