Everything about the Bentley Continental Supersports was engineered for a single purpose: to deliver the most thrilling driving experience possible from a Bentley. The fastest, most powerful Bentley ever, it features a significantly tuned, more powerful twin-turbocharged engine and extensive use of lightweight components throughout, including carbon fiber and Alcantara interior trim, and the largest carbon fiber-reinforced silicon carbide ceramic disc brakes on a production car. The result was 0–60 mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 204 mph.
In 2011, the original Supersports was joined by a convertible version that lost virtually nothing to its coupe sibling; 0–60 still took 3.9 seconds and top speed was down by only two, to 202 mph.
This example was originally delivered by Manhattan Motor Cars of New York to an owner in Michigan and has been a favorite occasional driver during its well-maintained life in the Calumet Collection. At the time of cataloguing it had recorded just 19,235 actual miles and remains in outstanding condition throughout, and is accompanied by its original handbooks.
This is a wonderful example of one of the most powerful and exciting modern Bentleys – a true supercar, with comfortable room for four!
