Okay, we have to admit it. Unless you’re talking British Racing Green, that’s not the color we normally associate with the British brand, Bentley. But if the sneak peek we’re sharing of the Bentley Continental Supersports is any indication, there really may be such a thing as an environmentally-friendly – or at least “friendlier” – Bentley, and it’s making its debut appearance at this week’s Geneva Motor Show.
Bentley has a lot to live up to with a car named Supersports. It’s a direct link to the 1925 model of that name that was one of the fastest cars of its era and the first Bentley to push past the 100 mph mark.
“The Continental Supersports reflects the passion and enthusiasm of Bentley’s engineers and designers. This is the fastest, most extreme Bentley ever, dramatically styled to underline its supercar character. Importantly, it also pioneers the use of FlexFuel technology in the luxury sector,” says Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive.
