2017 has got Bentley’s comeback with the quickest car ever from its collection. Bentley Continental Supersports can go from 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds, on to a top speed of 336km/h and boasts a 522kW power plant, this makes it most powerful production in the history of cars. Bentley claims the Supersports Coupe is a 700bhp monster world’s fastest four-seater car and the convertible sibling is the world’s fastest four-seater drop-top.
While Bentley started teasing the new model everyone thought especially the new generation that it is just an exaggeration from the company but while it came in front of everyone they proved themselves right. The fans were expecting the car to be a two-seater with bare bone, a stripped back but it came different altogether. Thanks to some carbon fiber exterior fittings, huge carbon ceramic brakes, lightweight forged alloy wheels, and a titanium exhaust system that the new Supersports is lighter than any other Continental GT.
While there was no sacrifice in any of the car’s creature comforts or interior cossetting Bentley still managed to shave the car up to 25kgs. A new air cooler system has been fixed with higher capacity turbochargers plus new conrods and bearings. Since the weight of this new Supersports is lighter it means an overall 10% improvement regarding power-to-weight ratio.
Here is the look of the Bentley Continental Supersports from inside.
From the very first Supersports collection since 1920’s to the Continental Supersports of 2009 and now 2017 is the legendary collection of Bentley to date. Supersports which excites impassions and thrills is now with its third iteration of this iconic model. The car has a clever four-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring and is more than simply a muscle car in an impeccably tailored suit. Simultaneously it can apply brakes to one wheel while re-routing power to another to maintain grip in the tightest bend.
