2017 Bentley Continental Supersports Coupe & Convertible – Video
The new 12-cylinder Bentley Continental Supersports is essentially a rolling superlative. Not only is it the most powerful Bentley ever, with its 700-hp W-12 engine, it’s also the quickest and the fastest Bentley ever, with its maker claiming a zero-to-60-mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 209 mph. Those are the sorts of numbers befitting the Supersports model’s position above the GT Speed at the top of the Continental hierarchy.
Although the Continental Supersports coupe is likely to be the one that puts down the most impressive performance numbers, a droptop Supersports will also be offered. Its 385-pound weight penalty dulls performance somewhat, as Bentley claims only 3.7 seconds for the zero-to-60-mph run and a mere 205-mph top speed, but the convertible shares visual tweaks and performance modifications with the hardtop.
Opting for the convertible also imposes a significant price penalty, with the convertible, priced at $325,325, costing nearly $30,000 more than the coupe, which is priced at $296,025.
