2010 Bentley Continental Supersports

The Bentley Continental Supersports is an all-new model for the 2010 model year. Based on the already-impressive Continental GT, the new Supersports takes performance and luxury up another notch or two. The cabin is lavishly covered in premium soft leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber – rear seats are replaced with a stowage deck, while in front are two lightweight sport seats. Outside the Supersports is differentiated from the standard Continental GT with unique 20-inch alloy wheels, ultra-high performance tires, larger wheel arches, twin elliptical exhaust outlets and special pearlescent and matte paint colors. Further differentiating the Supersports from other Bentleys is the twin-turbo W12 engine producing 630 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque that starts at just 1,700 rpm. A fast shifting transmission and rear-biased all-wheel drive system complete the package.

Under its long hood is a twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V8 engine that produces 500 horsepower and an impressive 738 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough power to move this 5,699 pound vehicle to 60 mph in a mere 5.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 179 mph. The Azure T should be available later in the model year.
