Bentley Continental Convertible Supersports (2011) [Reviews]

Bentley Continental Convertible Supersports will further enhance the range Bentley supercar, after the introduction of the Bentley Continental Super Sport Coupe in 2009. The new Super Sport Cabriolet, the same 630PS (621bhp/463kW) twin-turbocharged W12 engine, is the fastest, most efficient drop-top Bentley has ever built, offering the best possible driving experience of the world's most dramatic Bentley convertible .

The inspiration for "Super Sport name for 1925 Bentley Supersports, a racing version of iconic race Bentley 3-liter, which delivered 85bhp when more ordinary cars were equipped with a modest 15bhp. It was also the first car to reach 100 mph - extreme performance in its time.

The new four-seat convertible Bentley Continental muscle Bentley Supersports is undoubtedly in its design and craftsmanship, but his dramatic reinterpretation interiorsignifies Bentley luxury. Raso carbon fiber, leather Soft-Grip 'Alcantara ™ and create a sporty and contemporary.

All models in the range of the continental model, the new Bentley Continental convertible super sports are now able to run both gasoline (petrol) and E85 ethanol or a combination of two confirms the continued commitment of Bentley make all cars 2012 biofuel compatible. Pioneer Super Sport Coupe, this flex-fuel technology offers a reduction of up to 70 percent of CO2 emissions on the basis of "well to wheel", a measure of the net contribution of fuel to the atmosphere, not only exhaust emissions.

To ensure smooth delivery of power on board the fuel supply system detects the proportion of fuel mixture in the tank and ensures that the power and torque remain constant regardless of the ratio of gasoline to biofuel.
Bentley CEO Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen welcomes the new addition to the Bentley field and standardization of flex-fuel engine in all models W12 Continental 2011:

"The new Bentley Continental Convertible Supersports combines exciting performance and dramatic style with the luxury and comfort in the tradition of Bentley convertible. Extreme power combined with FlexFuel technology pioneer, is now shared with all Continental models, reflecting the Bentley's continued commitment to the environment more. "

Bentley Continental Super Sport Convertible - in detail
The new Bentley Continental Supersport Cabriolet is a car to be driven to be fully understood. Behind the wheel, it is obvious that Bentley Supersports is a "fusion of extremes" - the ultimate in performance, daily usage and craftsmanship unparalleled luxury.

Bentley Supersports program started, "under the radar", a project to explore the possibilities of weight reduction Continental GT Coupe, but more power and torque. Largely an experimental project as soon as encapsulated in the official program of the new car, driven by a passion and enthusiasm of a small group of engineers and designers of Bentley. Now Bentley Continental Convertible Supersports have the same attention and the results are equally dramatic. Dr. Ulrich Eichhorn, Member of the Board, Engineering, explains the philosophy behind the project:

"'Extreme' Bentley now has a stable population in the form of the new Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible - car is just as determined and powerful than the Coupé, but the originality of the roof-down motoring."

A highly concentrated, pure driving experience Bentley

With 630PS (621bhp) and 800Nm (590 lb ft) of torque from its revolutionary flex-fuel engine and the new "Quick Shift" transmission has Bentley Continental Super Sport Convertible Convertible Quick Bentley ever built. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds (0-100 km / h in 4.2 seconds) and if conditions permit, may continue to a top speed of 202 mph (325 kmh).

The increased power and torque transfer to four-wheel drive system through a quick review and six-speed transmission Quick Shift, more than half the travel time (for only 93 milliseconds) and maximizes the potential new convertible enormous. The gearbox has also revised the ability to deliver double downshifts (sixth to fourth gear, for example) and enhances acceleration in the speed range. To handle the power and torque, the planetary gear set of the ZF transmission is also enhanced.

Positive torque when climbing to reach the electronic engine control and transmission of interaction with the accelerator and the additional injection of fuel during the crossing. During upshifts, the fuel and the ignition is turned off momentarily to provide faster than a mechanical change over time, through the reduction of torque, but also improves shift quality and durability.

The extreme performance of the Bentley Continental convertible superports is balanced by responsive handling and agility, while maintaining first class standards of comfort and refinement. Developed from the GTC Speed, the improvements include re-tune the chassis of continuous electronic damping control (CDC) system, stiffer front and rear suspension bushings bar reinforced anti-roll. Bentley Continental Convertible Supersports also shares its peak with the GTC Speed ​​sits 10mm (0.4in) below the front and 15 mm (0.6in) below the back of the GTC normal.
Front suspension after the lever is a new project of hydraulic Bush, 33 percent stiffer than the speed GTC, improves steering response, and enhanced rear anti-roll bar provides better body control and cornering response.

CDC retuned system offers more control over body movements to achieve the optimal balance between agility and comfort during all driving maneuvers. Agility is sharper for a couple of prejudices 40:60 split rear the AWD system that reduces understeer in hard cornering and enables the experienced driver to modulate the line and the balance of the car through the throttle accurate.

9.5Jx20-inch forged alloy wheels, split the Super Sports Coupe offer a weight saving of 10 kg (22 £) for cars, to reduce unsprung weight and rotating while open 10 breeds with superior cooling for the brakes. The rear wheels are 25mm (1 inch) offset the higher result of 50 mm (2 inches) increase in rear track continues to benefit from the handling and stability.

Light wheels 275/35 ZR 20 are fitted with Pirelli high performance tires that provide excellent steering feel. The standard-fit tire monitoring system allows the driver to choose the type of tires and the speed range of parameters. And pressure monitoring, the system alerts the driver if the speed is the tire pressure is too high or if the sensitivity of the ring that has passed the winter tires.

Bentley Continental Supersport Convertible offers advanced electronic stability program (ESP) that moderates the response at low speed, exploiting the potential of a more powerful engine and improved chassis, improving driver interaction and control. The new ESP also offers a faster recovery after surgery of torque, giving the driver greater control over the spirit. The objective of change increased over 90 percent of gas to use all of the conditions of longitudinal traction. The agility of the corners is also improved and greater involvement of the driver. In general, changes in the chassis, tires and the track provide a better grip, turn-ins and agility.
Carbon ceramic brakes are standard equipment and offer a reduction in turnover and unsprung mass of 20 kg (44 pounds) of the front axle, the benefit management response, traction and ride comfort. The large diameter (420 mm front, rear 356 mm) discs and eight-piston light fade resistance provide braking performance with minimal distortion of the disc under high temperature. Pedal feel is also improved with shorter trips, high efficiency and precise pressure point.
