Bentley seriously considering Continental Supersports Convertible

Bentley Continental Supersports

There are a total of seven Bentley Continental models, the latest being the 204 mph Bentley Continental Supersports Coupe. Of course when an elite automaker builds a car of that caliber, there is one question that is always asked – will they make a convertible version?

According to CARandDRIVER, Bentley said that it is seriously considering the possibility of a drop-top Continental Supersports. It’s hasn’t been given the green light yet, but insiders say it won’t be hard to make one since the bulk of the engineering work is already done. Apparently, the stiffened body of the GTC Speed is capable of handling a higher-performing engine. Not to mention, the Continental Supersports Coupe drops 243 pounds with carbon-ceramic brakes, lightweight wheels, carbon fiber shelled sport seats, the removal of rear sets and much more.

As for now, buyers can settle for the 2010 Bentley Supersports Coupe, which goes on sale this October for $273,295. Power comes from a 6.0L W12 twin-turbocharged engine making 621-hp and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft. The engine is capable of running on gasoline and E85 biofuel or any combination of the two. Keep in mind that the first couple of hundred units headed to the U.S. will be gas only.
