The result is 640PS (471 kW) and 800Nm (590 lb-ft). The engine is mated to a Quickshift 6-speed automatic gearbox. 0 to 100 km/h in 4 seconds, flat and top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).

"Driving this very special Bentley Continental in front of the packed Goodwood grandstands was a special experience for me," said Juha Kankunnen, four-time world rally champion.

"Driving on a frozen sea was a unique challenge and only a few Bentley engineers and my support crew were there to witness the new world record. So it was a pleasure to provide a glimpse of the capabilities of this Bentley to a huge audience of motorsport enthusiasts on a beautiful summer's day.", he added.
