The new Continental Super sports takes the phenomenal performance, handling and speed of the first generation to new levels. The pure essence of Bentley, it is the most powerful model ever produced. Its supercar performance is the result of an astonishing 700 bhp (710 PS) harnessed with engineering innovations that include torque-vectoring developed by Bentley Motorsport.

The blistering acceleration and awe-inspiring top speed make it every inch a supercar. Bold body styling features – with carbon-fiber accents to front and rear. A large carbon-fiber rear spoiler adds to the high-performance characteristics and agile handling. The interior delivers a stunning race-inspired design in the form of a uniquely bold carbon-fiber to the fascia plates, and a completely new three-tone interior color split option. The new Continental Super sports is a rare pleasure – only a very limited number of these cars will be built.


Body styling features a bold new front and rear bumper design with carbon-fiber accents, while distinctive carbon-fiber bonnet vents, side skirts and a rear spoiler enhance the supercar style even further, as well as adding to the car’s aerodynamic capabilities. Full exterior Blackware on the radiator surround, light units, window surrounds, rear bumper and door handle inserts give the car a strikingly assertive look, as do the gloss black exhaust tailpipe finishes and wing vents. The brooding image is completed by dark tint front and rear lights, 21” Black and Bright Machined Lightweight Forged Sports wheels and gloss black front radiator matrix grille – the first available on this generation of W12-powered Continentals.


Step into the cabin and you will discover an interior that continues the powerful sporting theme from outside. Unique large design carbon-fiber fascia plates set the car apart, with Super sports branding on the passenger side fascia plate and on the treadplates. Super sports emblems are stitched onto the headrests, while a new diamond quilting design to the seat centers and side panels enhances the car’s distinctive look still further. The unique Super sports steering wheel and gear lever provide the finishing touches.


As you would expect from the pinnacle of the Continental range, the world’s fastest four-seater is the most powerful Bentley ever produced. Inspired by the Motorsports technology found in the GT3-R, every aspect of its exceptional engineering has been designed to deliver unprecedented responsiveness and performance.


The new Continental Super sports is built around the most powerful W12 engine that Bentley has ever developed, now producing a remarkable 700 bhp (710 PS) and 1017 Nm of torque. It is also the fastest Bentley off the blocks, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds) to a blistering top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h), making it the fastest Bentley ever produced. Torque Vectoring by Brake combined with a reduced unsprung mass increases responsiveness through corners for a truly performance-focused drive, working with the rear-biased torque split of the permanent all-wheel drive system that sends 60% of the engine output to the rear wheels. A Titanium exhaust system enhances the sound of the engine, highlighting its supercar capabilities. (Available as a cost option or as part of the Super sports ‘X’ specification.)


The enhanced performance is enabled by the newly designed, higher-capacity turbochargers and a revised charge-air cooling system, which work in tandem to create more boost and additional power. To harness this additional power, Bentley has upgraded the Super sports’ crank train, including new main and conrod bearings. These extensive engine revisions result in an increase of 79 bhp (80 PS) and 217 Nm (160 lb.ft.) over the first-generation Super Sports In simple terms, this translates into a breathtaking top speed that is five mph faster, shaving 0.3 seconds off the 0 to 60 mph time.
The Super sports also benefits from a new torque converter that locks up faster, allowing the car to make the most of the enhanced torque of 1,017 Nm (750 lb. ft.). In practical terms, it means you can accelerate from standstill more rapidly than ever. High-performance carbon ceramic brakes with enhanced cooling make all this power easily controllable. The brake discs are the largest of their type in the world, providing excellent performance with minimal fade under extreme conditions. The brakes sit behind lightweight 21” forged alloy wheels, offering a combined 25kg weight saving in unsprung mass. In total, 30kg has been stripped out of the Super sports making it the lightest-ever iteration of the current Continental GT.


The impressive performance in the Continental Super sports has been made possible by the introduction of Torque Vectoring by Brake. First utilized on the GT3-R, this new system analyses the driver’s inputs to the accelerator and steering wheel to brake individual front and rear wheels during acceleration out of corners to deliver supercar performance. It will also brake the inside rear wheel on turning to improve the car’s agility. The Super sports features a bespoke stability control calibration –delivering a very precise chassis response.

The Torque Vectoring harmonizes with the 60:40 rear bias torque distribution of Bentley all-wheel drive, to give Super sports better balance and sporting character. It sits within the Electronic Stability Control system, which brings together the antilock brakes, traction control and stability control systems, all of which have been calibrated for agility and performance.
