A press release came across our desks today, which needless to say had some at the CarAdvice office intrigued.
It read: “On March 3rd at the 2009 International Geneva Motor Show, Bentley will reveal its fastest, most powerful production car ever.” No need to read any further, sign me up. Mansory has nothing on this beast…
Apparently delivering supercar performance (well, yes, we hope so) it’s said to be an “extreme Bentley”.
But what’s really interesting is the fact that this car marks stage one of Bentley’s committment to the environment. How so?
The new Bentley supercar is designed to run on bio-fuel, making it one of the first in this segment. Bentley claims it is pioneering the use of the fuel. However news also comes of Bentley’s hit in the economic crisis. Production is set to shut down in Crewe for around five to six weeks, from March.
Deliberate timing to gear up for production of the new car? Or a quietening off from the boom time? We’ll keep you informed.
