When Bentley’s first-generation Continental GT made its debut in 2003, its W12 engine developed an impressive 552bhp, giving a top speed close to 200mph. That gives a little perspective to the new Supersports, which produces a massive 700bhp and reaches 209mph.
While it is both the fastest accelerating and fastest outright Bentley ever, the Supersports is no stripped-out track special; it’s as luxurious and refined as a Bentley ought to be.
The Supersports name made its debut in 1925 on a highly-tuned Bentley 3 Litre capable of a genuine 100mph. Just eighteen examples were built; the name was revised in 2009 with the 200+mph Continental Supersports, which earned its place in automotive history when ex-rally champ Juha Kankkunen set a new world ice speed record at the wheel. So the new model has quite a heritage to live up to, and prospective owners won’t be disappointed.
This particular Bentley Continental Super Sport is being offered for sale under very specific instructions, and Coys invite all interested parties to enquire for further details on the Lot by application.
