Bentley reaffirms its eco commitment with Continental Supersports

Sunday, March 1, 2009

The Continental Supersports is not only the fastest and most powerful Bentley ever, but it also reaffirms the company’s environmental commitment. This eco-friendly, luxury coupe could be taken as the first step of the company’s commitment to make its complete model range compatible with renewable fuels by 2012. The car does 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and gets to a top speed of 204 mph. It makes use of the new FlexFuel system and runs on petrol, E85 biofuel (a mixture of 85% bioethanol and 15% petrol), or a mix of both. The power comes from a 6.0-litre W12 engine twin-turbocharged engine that delivers 463kW at 6000rpm. The chassis enhancements include retuned steering and suspension, utilizing lighter weight components, retuned dampers and anti-roll bars. The inimitable dark-smoked steel finish to the exterior, including front grilles, lamp bezels, window surrounds and wheels makes it stand apart from the other Continental coupes.
