Bentley will launch the SuperSport version of the Continental GT boasting a modified 625hp 6.0-litre W12 engine capable of running on E85 ethanol, lightweight treatment and bespoke exterior details.
Weight-saving measures include lighter brakes and wheels, special front seat and the omission of the rear chairs to bring down the weight by 110kg from 2,350kg of the standard GT.
As a result, Bentley says the SuperSport goes from 0-100kph in 3.7sec (faster than the GT by 0.9sec and 0-160kph in 8.9sec (2.2sec quicker). As well, real-world driving sees a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions.
