2011 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible promises best performance
Bentley has pull the cover on their latest creation, the 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible, which grand premiere is scheduled for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show 2010. After the debut of their stunning Continental Supersports Coupe in 2009, now the marque's high-performance lineup gets more powerful than ever.
Bentley's new addition pumps its power by the same 621 horsepower (463kW) twin-turbocharged W12 powerplant fitted on the hard-top model. Packed with fresh new enhancements like revised ZF 6HP26 transmission with ‘Quickshift' system, retuned Continuous Damping Control (CDC) unit and advanced ESP system that fully reveals the potential of the W12 engine, the newcomer tops the luxury brand's lineup as the most potent drop?top Bentley ever built.
Thanks to its FlexFuel technology, the new Supersports Convertible is able of running on both petrol and bioethanol, which results in 70 per cent reduction of the CO2 emissions. The classic zero to 100 km/h acceleration sprint takes only 4.2 seconds and the top speed is limited to 325km/h.
Further highlights of the new model are the 20-inch, 10-spoke design alloys fitted with 275/35 ZR20 Pirelli Ultra High Performance tyres and the lighweight carbon-ceramic brakes.
