Bentley Continental GT Supersports is British luxury at 209 mph
A little bit away from the hustle and bustle of Detroit 2017, we've been invited to a preview of the latest chapter in the Bentley Continental GT story, the all new Supersports.
Now, here are the highlights.
It's six liter W12 has been tweaked to give it 700 brake horsepower and 750 pound-foot Which means naught to 60 takes 3.4 seconds.
And its top speed is 209 miles an hour.
Which is frankly insane.
Bentley's most excited about 40 kilos of this curb weight.
Which makes it the lightest Continental GT you can buy today.
Which is pretty fantastic.
Now to separate it out from all the other Continental GTs in the range, there's a new front end, a new rear end, more carbon details Black bits on it, some smoky headlamps, and of course, Supersports' badging.
There's even talk of entering by breaking in there, which has been borrowed from the GT3 R limited run car from 2015, the racecar inspired one.
Now, if you want one in the states, they're only bringing 250 here, only 150 for the UK, it's a very limited run car You're gonna have to call your dean up pretty quick.
For more from Detroit 2017 keep it locked on the RoadShow.com.
