Bentley Set To Debut Biofueled Supercar at Geneva Motor Show
Classic British luxury automaker Bentley has made it abundantly clear that it intends to bring biofuels to its range as quickly as possible, going so far as to promise that all of its cars will be flex-fuel capable by 2012. To that end, the automaker is planning to launch its first flex-fuel vehicle ever at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March, after which it will be brought to New York in April. Details, understandably enough, remain scarce ahead of the car's debut, but Bentley has us expecting big things for its new supercar, which is obviously based on the underpinnings of the automaker's younger Continental range.
Biofuel is a broad term and can mean lots of different things, and in this case we're expecting to see an ethanol fuel running through the veins of the Continentals twelve-cylinder engine. Engines that are tuned properly to make use of the alcohol fuel's high octane rating can make lots of power, and Bentley is promising that this new production vehicle will be the firm's most powerful production machine ever.
