- It’s the fastest and most powerful Bentley road car ever. Its twin turbocharged W12 engine now produces a remarkable 522kW and 1017Nm, firing it from 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 336km/h.
- It’s also the world’s fastest four-seater, narrowly eclipsing the top speed of Ferrari’s GTC4Lusso, by just one kilometre per hour.
- The Supersports’ 21-inch wheels are made of forged alloy, saving 20kg in unsprung mass compared with those of the regular Bentley Continental GT.
- The standard carbon-ceramic brakes are claimed to be the largest of their type available on any current production car, which is just as well since the car weighs 2280kg.
- The brakes can withstand temperatures of up to 1000 degrees centigrade – which is the same temperature as volcanic lava.
- At full power the Continental Supersports’ 6.0-litre, twin turbocharged W12 engine inhales over 500 litres of air per second.
- At its 336km/h top speed the Supersports covers the length of a football field every second.
