Bentley Continental Supersports - record on ice
It is interesting, how fast the cars can go on ice? You don't need to guess anymore. Bentley has set a new world speed record on the frozen waters of the Baltic Sea.
The Continental Supersports was driven by four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen. He averaged 330.695 km/h (205.48 mph) in two runs and set official record, which will be placed in The Guinness Book of World Records.
There were some modifications of the Bentley Continental Supersports like a fully-welded roll-cage, new front and rear spoilers, a bumper-mounted parachute, and Pirelli SottoZero II winter tires.
This special edition of Supersports will be exhibited at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
