With output like that, it’s no surprise the new Supersports can demolish a 0-60 mph run in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 209 mph. The convertible also returns, although the soft top does cost a bit of outright speed. It’s 0.3 seconds slower to 60 mph with a time of 3.7 seconds. It also has a slower top speed of 205 mph. But the headroom is amazing.
OK, so maybe I just made the Hellcat analogy to rustle some UK jimmies. The cars are clearly two entirely different beasts. What really matters is that Bentley just built one hell of a performance car, with a power output not seen on any other Bentley model.
Inside, Bentley offers a tri-tone cabin design, with a diamond quilting pattern on the seats and door panels. The Supersports gets a unique steering wheel and gear lever, both of which have Alcantara accents. Of course, should the very supple and very luxurious Supersports interior not be up to your persnickety tastes on its own, the folks at Mulliner can jazz it up however you please.
Pricing? Well, if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford one. Official details will be released closer to the car’s launch later this year. For now, check out the new Supersports in the gallery below, and stay tuned for live photos direct from its Detroit Auto Show debut this weekend.
