Bentley has released the 2018 Continental Supersports, and it is almost unbelievable. Turbo technology has made great advances since 2013, so the new W12 engine produces 700 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty has been shaved to 3.4 seconds, as long as you have race fuel (above 98 octane) and sticky tires. Extensive use of carbon fiber has trimmed around 200 lbs of weight from the body, so the gross vehicle has a rating of only 6,063 lbs. But if you don’t want to wait for the new model, our dealers have amazing deals on the first generation cars.
Starting on the inside, every surface and control is substantial. Machined metal and handstitched leather are built to last. The coupe is a real hardtop, with no pillar between the front windows and the quarter glass. When all four windows are down it almost feels like a convertible. If you are looking for a drop-top, the Bentley Continental GTC is worthy of consideration.
