Bentley Ready to Showcase the Continental Super Sport
|   Thursday, April 11, 2013
Bentley is planning on designing a Continental GT Super Sport capable of displacing 650 BHP plus and this high performance flagship machine is set to be available for purchase by early 2014. This vehicle is expected to be lightweight than its predecessor, featuring a carbon fiber body with light weight panels. The suspension has been stiffened out while the engine is capable of churning out more power.

The cabin has been stripped out to reduce weight and the new parts are equally fancy while saving up a lot on weight.
The vehicle is expected to be powered by a twin turbo charged W12 engine. The Super Sport was first announced in autumn 2009 and subsequent modifications have been made to the vehicle since. However, Bentley claims that the new car will be able to outperform all its predecessors on overall performance.

The GT Super Sport is all set to close the gap between the segments of the 616 BHP displacing model and the 675 BHP plus model. This is set to increase the popularity of this Bentley with the performance lovers and this could see the Continental GT Super Speed through to newer markets. Bentley plans on launching a production ready Continental GT3 model by 2015 and the new Super Sport will be placed right below the vehicle in its segment.

Bentley is also planning to launch a street legal race car version of the Continental GT3 and like Porsche, this model could be pepped by an extra 30 BHP or more. Bentley is quite confident of its new products surviving the tough competition in the market. Although the price of the vehicles make it almost impossible for everyone to afford a Bentley but company sources claim that this is a move to ensure that the exclusivity of Bentley is maintained and it continues to remain an exclusive ride for the rich.

However, company sources reveal that the Super Sport will not be just about raw power. Like its cousins, this vehicle will have the perfect blend between luxury, performance and technology and this is set to enhance the exclusivity of the vehicle. Bentley plans on focusing on the drive ergonomics of their vehicles and the Continental GT Super Sport is set to be a combined package of the best.

Body control, traction, wheel spin etc are very stiff and this gives the vehicle immense control over asphalt. The power is well managed and distributed to the necessary places at the optimum time. Bentley has finally managed to reduce the weight of the vehicle and this is expected to work in favor of the vehicle.

Overall, this is a more focused driver's machine than any other previously manufactured Bentley and the sportier edge lent to the machine will definitely attract attention. The cabin has space for two people to be seated comfortably and the carbon fiber body panels have been carried forward to the interior too. The Bentley Continental Super Sport is a much awaited vehicle and looking at the hype, sales are likely to pull up fast.
