With the top down, you will experience the exhilarating performance, handling and speed of the Continental Supersports Convertible. The well-insulated cabin means it is practical for all seasons- as a coupe during winter and with an open top during those long Summer months. This limited edition Supersports is the fastest, most intense convertible yet to be produced by Bentley.
The Continental Supersports Convertible encases the most powerful W12 engine that Bentley has ever developed, producing a noteworthy 700 bhp (710 PS) and 1,017Nm of torque. With intense top speeds of 205 mph and 0 to 60mph acceleration in just 3.7 seconds, the Supersports makes for a thrilling drive. The high capacity turbochargers and a charge-air-cooling system work in tandem to boost the car’s power output. The cranktrain includes special bearings to utilise this additional momentum. Collectively, these innovations increase power output by 79 bhp and 217 Mn over the original Continental Supersports Convertible. This translates to a car that is 5 mph faster, trimming 0.2 seconds off the 0 to 60 mph time – a true supercar performance. The impressive execution of the Continental Supersports Convertible has been made possible by the dynamic torque vectoring.
The system analyses the driver’s inputs to the accelerator and steering wheel to brake individual front and rear wheels during acceleration out of corners, improving the car’s agility. The 60:40 rear bias torque distribution of the all-wheel drive gives better balance. And the titanium exhaust enhances the engine’s roars, making its presence known on the roads.
Instantly recognisable, the Continental Supersports Convertible stands out from the pack with its bold body styling and carbon fibre accents. The full exterior blackware on the radiator surround, window surrounds, light units, handle inserts and rear bumper give the car an impressively imposing appearance, as does the glossy black exhaust and wing vents. The carbon fibre bonnet vents and side skirts accentuate this super car’s capabilities further. With an abundant choice of 11 colours and colour splits, you can create the Supersports Convertible suit for you. The dark tint front and rear lights, the 21-inch Black and Bright Lightweight Forged Sports wheels and gloss black front radiator matrix grille, combine to create a car of intrigue.
The cabin maintains the sporty feel of the exterior, creating a look that is particularly special once the top is lowered. Large checked carbon-fibre fascia plates are found on the passenger side and again on the tread plates. Supersports emblems have been meticulously stitched onto the headrests, this combined with the diamond quilting seat centres and side panels enhance the Continental Supersports Convertible’s distinctive look. Notable interior features include: a single tone, 3 spoke, alcantara and hide trimmed steering wheel with contrast stitching; Eliade headlining; a knurled sports gear lever trimmed with alcantara hide and ‘SUPERSPORTS’ embossed tread plates.
There is a choice of mono-tone colour splits or the Supersports duo-tone colour split and a choice of 11 interior leather colours with 18 accent colours. Only a limited few have been produced, making the Continental Supersports a rare treasure to own*.
There is a wealth of technology at your fingertips in the Continental Supersports Convertible. Its infotainment system includes an 8-inch high resolution touch screen embedded within the handcrafted fascia, incorporating AM/FM radio and an optional Sirius satellite radio*, alongside navigation, suspension adjustment and controls for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The Bluetooth wireless connectivity makes it easy to pair the car to your smart phone and other media.
Like all Bentleys, the Continental Supersports Convertible offers endless personalisation options, so no two cars are truly the same. The hood can be commissioned in eight different colours or with a unique interior split. You can also specify unique contrast stitching for the steering wheel, which will be carried throughout the cabin as standard. There is a choice of 11 single colours for the swish perforated Alcantara hide. Other options include: neck warmers on the seats to keep you warm even with the top down on a crisp winter’s day or front seat ventilation to keep you cool on the hottest days. To take your Bentley to the next level, there is the unique ‘SUPERSPORTS X SPECIFICATION’ option. It offers 8 exclusive duo-tone paint treatments including Onyx with St James Red Pearlescent, Khamun, Magnetic, Ice, Hallmark, Sandstone, Burnt Orange or Spectre. The carbon fibre theme flows throughout the cabin with carbon-fibre door mirrors, carbon-fibre heel plates, side door and rear panels as well as the Supersports carbon-fibre engine cover. All specifications add to the assertive character of the Continental Supersports Convertible.
