Introducing the 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports
After 15 years of admirable service, the Bentley Continental GT is headed into retirement, but not before making one final, massive statement as the fastest, most powerful Bentley ever produced. That is saying something, as the Supersports name tracks its Bentley heritage back to the 1920s. This is Bentley’s best of the best and those fortunate enough to own one are in for quite the experience.
The Fastest Four-Seat Luxury Car On the Planet
Opening remarks on the 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports are required to address this Bentley’s exhilaratingly powerful engine. Bentley has coaxed more horsepower than ever from its legendary 6.0 liter, twin-turbo W-12 engine, achieving 700 hp along with 750 ft. lb. of torque. The 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports can reach a top speed of 209 mph so easily it almost appears mystical. Going from zero to 60 takes just 3.2 seconds and occurs impressively smoothly. The quarter-mile is realized in just 11.5 seconds after reaching a speed of 112 mph. The W-12 is mated with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission that is made even more enjoyable via large steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. The engine and transmission pairing is solid, responsive and almost magic-carpet-like in its performance. It is this power on a higher level of luxury which helps the 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports soar above the rest. The view is terrific from up here.
An Exterior Optimized for Aerodynamics
Bentley designers have worked hard with its engineers in making the most of the Supersports exceptional power plan with an exterior design that is aerodynamically chiseled for minimum air resistance. It is accomplished while maintaining Bentley’s signature grille, wide stance, and uber-luxe appearance. A carbon-fiber splitter in the front bumper adds to its “all-business” appearance, accented by side sill extensions and carbon fiber hood vents. The rear of the 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports boasts a new diffuser and the rear spoiler is optimized for aerodynamics.
An Eye-Widening Interior
The 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports delivers posh-luxury without pompous stuffiness. You may be a bit surprised by its racing-inspired interior with dramatic sweeping lines that wrap driver and passengers in visual excitement and comfort. Bentley continues to use analog-style designs for its dials and gauges, giving the cockpit a unique old-school atmosphere of sophistication. Even the deep trunk space is deeply carpeted. Technology is kept to a minimum. This is a Bentley of substance, not just sizzle. Available optional choices allow each Bentley Supersports owner to achieve their own personal level of opulence.
