Bentley Continental

All Bentley Continental variants will be flex-fuel capable by June 2010.

At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Bentley announced that all the cars in its Continental range will be available with flex-fuel capabilities starting in June. The move is a part of the company’s strategy to reduce CO2 emissions of its fleet by 15 percent by 2012.

Bentley said that the Continentals will be powered by a flex-fuel version of the company’s 6.0L W12 engine and will be the only powertrain option offered in the range. The engine will be able to run on gasoline, E85, or a mix of the two fuel types.
