Let Them Eat Cake: Bentley Unveils Continental Supersports in Geneva
With environmentalists pushing for more earth-friendly transport, surely gas-guzzling behemoths like Bentleys would be going the way of the do-do. Not so fast, says Bentley, as the British luxury automakers, famous for making cars that more closely resemble locomotives with enormous engines, has revealed its game plan to take the Winged B badge into the environmental age.
Called the Continental Supersports, the concept car is the first of what Bentley hopes will be many ethanol-burning vehicles it will offer. Not only does the Supersports offer improved fuel economy and reduced emissions, but it is actually the most powerful, fastest Bentley to date. With 621 horsepower on tap and a zero-to-sixty time of an amazing 3.7 seconds, the Bentley Continental Supersports hit the scene in Geneva to say that we can have our cake and eat it, too.
