With a top speed of 209 miles per hour and 700 horsepower from its W12 engine, the new Bentley Continental Supersports lays claim to the title of fastest four seat car.
Bentley announced the Continental Supersports at the beginning of this year, and its 700 horsepower immediately invited inappropriate comparison to the Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
Unlike the Dodge, the Continental Supersports is a high-end luxury car, with limited production numbers.
The model's heritage goes back to the 1920s, when Bentley released a Supersports version of its 3-liter car that could hit over 100 mph.
The Continental Supersports builds on the Continental model that Bentley introduced in 2003.
As with other Continental models, the Supersports comes with standard all-wheel-drive, an eight-speed automatic transmission and an adaptive suspension with four settings.
The Continental Supersports will be available as a convertible, shown here, or a coupe.
Bentley gives the Supersports some unique styling elements, such as black exterior accents.
Carbon fiber hood vent inserts come as part of the Supersports package.
The 6-liter W12 engine uses dual twin-scroll turbochargers to produce 700 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque.
These 21-inch wheels are also standard.
Although an impressive and noteworthy beast of a car, the Continental model shows its age, and could do with some lightweighting and modern electronics.
