Bentley Continental Supersports
Here are some live impressions of the Bentley Continental Supersports from the New York Auto Show.

Key aspects of the new Continental Supersports include:

• 6-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine now produces 621bhp and 590 lb ft of torque
• 0 – 60 mph in 3.7 seconds / 0 -100 mph in 8.9 seconds
• Top speed of 204 mph
• Capable of running on gasoline and E85 biofuel or any combination of the two
• Offers a reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 70% (well-to-wheel), a measure of a fuel’s net contribution to the atmosphere, not just tailpipe emissions
• Revised transmission with ‘Quickshift’ system that cuts shift times by 50% and enables double downshifts
• Standard-fit carbon-ceramic brakes – the largest and most powerful brakes ever fitted to a production car
• 243 lb weight saving compared to Continental GT Speed
