This is a dramatic re-interpretation of Bentley prestige, with satin finish carbon fibre, Alcantara and ‘Soft Grip’ leather giving the Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible a true sporting character. Every switch and stitch is made to the same hand-finished Bentley standard.
As with the coupé model, form follows function, however good it looks. For example, the distinctive centre air intake and vertical grilles feed 10 percent more air to the twin turbocharger intercoolers, while the dramatic bonnet vents extract hot air from the engine bay. The curved, muscular rear wheel arches accommodate the wider rear track that’s part of this extreme performance chassis. Elsewhere, the carbon fibre front sports seats are not simply beautiful. They save 45kg, and the boot-lid spoiler contributes to aerodynamic efficiency.
Uniquely, the Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible features a smoked steel finish to all exterior brightware, which uses the first-ever application of Physical Vapour Deposition to stainless steel on a road car.
