Bentley reveals new pics and video of the 2011 Continental Supersports Convertible
Bentley has released a whole new set of high-resolution images and video footage of its latest performance masterpiece, the 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible. Showcased for first time at this year's Geneva Motor Show, the hard-top convertible ride is still waiting for its market launch, scheduled for mid-summer.
The Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible is powered by a 621 horsepower (463kW) twin-turbocharged W12 engine mated to a revised ZF 6HP26 transmission with ‘Quickshift' system. Further hi-tech highlights under the bonnet include a retuned Continuous Damping Control (CDC) unit and advanced ESP system, which contribute for engine to reveals its full potential.
The drop-top Bentley also sports a FlexFuel system, which allows it to run on both petrol and bioethanol, resulting in 70 per cent reduction of the CO2 emissions. Its classic acceleration sprint 0-60 mph takes just 3.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 325km/h (electronically limited).
