Bentley Unveils the 2017 Continental Supersports, the World’s Fastest Four-Seat Car

Bentley has just taken the wraps off its most powerful production ever, in the form of a new Continental Supersports offered as a coupe and convertible. The coupe edition boasts the fastest acceleration out of any Bentley product ever made, at 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 209 mph, along with 700 bhp and 750 lb. ft. of torque, making it the world’s fastest and most powerful luxury four-seat car. The soft-top Convertible edition is the fastest four-seat convertible in the world doing the 0-60 mph test in 3.7 seconds and topping out at 205 mph.

Under the hood lies a redeveloped W12 engine with higher capacity turbos and a revised charge-air cooling system. A special calibration of an updated Continental GT3-R torque vectoring system channels the power onto 21-inch forged alloy wheels that sport Pirelli P Zero tires.

The interior features Bentley’s classic aesthetic of luxury and refined elegance, with a unique three color split. A new diamond-quilted design is incorporated in the seats and door side panels for a unique signature in Alcantara, while a custom Supersports steering wheel and shifter also feature Alcantara accents.

The exterior sports newly sculpted front and rear bumper designs incorporating a carbon fiber splitter and diffuser respectively, new side sill extensions and bonnet vents also finished in carbon fiber, gloss-black front wing vents and more. A new gloss-black, rifled exhaust tailpipe design, dark tint headlights and taillights, and other blacked-out accents continue the sleek design. Optional features include a titanium exhaust choice, an aerodynamically balanced rear spoiler and front splitter combination for the coupe, side decals, and gloss-finished Supersports-branded carbon fiber engine cover.
