The year`s first important auto show, the 2017 NAIAS, has presently gathered hundreds of concepts and new models which will set the future paces in the auto industry. One particular model that has struck out attention was the newly uncovered 2017 Bentley Continental GT Supersports.
From top to bottom, the all-new Bentley Continental GT Supersports represents the company`s latest innovation in terms of advanced technology and performance under the hood.
From a visual standpoint, the 2017 Bentley Continental GT Supersports comes with advanced aerodynamics which allows the most efficient power and torque lately seen on a Bentley model. We are looking here at carbon fiber components, which reduce the car`s weight and increase its performance.
The body style is fitted with front and rear carbon fiber splitters and diffusers, new exhaust tips, dark head, wide rear wing, 21-inch CNC alloy wheels for increase grip and a few more. The luxurious and high-end feel continues inside, the cabin now looking more stylish and being tweaked with the latest gadgetries.
The car`s sporty characteristics are given by the advanced torque vectoring system which is rather the same as the GT3R racer, meaning that it comes with a 40:60 front to rear split, adding carbon ceramic braking system with the largest discs in the world… as the company likes to call. The new Continental GT Supersports also comes with the new titanium exhaust system which reduces weight and adds more torque.
In terms of performance, Bentley says that the new Continental GT Supersports is the fastest Bentley ever produced, the Supersports badging being “legendary at Bentley”, as Wolfgang Durheimer stated in an official interview.
This means that it takes its power from a massive 6.2-liter W12 engine, with 522 kW and 1,017 Nm of torque, enough to deliver a 100 km/h sprint in mind-blowing 3.5 seconds. This is achieved via a top speed of 336 km/h.
