2010 Bentley Continental GT Supersports The Continental GT Supersports is the fastest, most powerful Bentley ever built. It can also run on ethanol, for reduced carbon emissions. Bentley Motors Bentley’s comeback-kid Continental GT, introduced in 2004, was better known as a grand tourer than a jagged-edged racetrack scamp. Then came the GT Speed, which added more power and nimble road manners, and it became the first Bentley to reach over 200 miles per hour. Then, a 24-month skunkworks project yielded the Supersport, an even more powerful variant that’s also lighter and, set up to run on ethanol – large quantities of it - emits less CO2.
Of course, only the most passionate lovers of internal-combustion engines might cut Bentley slack for kicking off an environmental sensitivity project with a fuel-swilling, neck-snapping bruiser of a sports car. But the Volkswagen-owned company has committed to cutting carbon emissions, and you can't deny the Supersports is a conversation starter in that regard. Bentley says using biofuel in the Supersports sums to 70 percent less emissions "well to wheels," which takes into account all the CO2s emitted as fossil fuels go from primordial ooze to food for supercars.
Plus, since the average Bentley owner has six other cars in his garage to choose from, a typical model logs just 8,000 miles a year. It's possible one of those cars in heavier rotation might be a Prius, or a bicycle.
