Despite a modest release, Bentley is extremely excited about its Continental Supersports Ice Speed Record (ISR) Convertible. It will make its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show starting this Friday, April 22, 2011.
The car celebrates a new world ice-speed record set by Juha Kankkunen in a Supersport Convertible on February 10, 2011. He was able to achieve a speed of 205.48 mph, eclipsing his own record of 199.83 mph, which he set in a Continental GT in 2007. The Bentley Supersports Ice Speed Record Convertible will be limited to just 100 units.
Like the car it is based off, power is derived from a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W-12 engine that can run off gasoline, E85 bio-ethanol, or any combination of the two. Power is up compared to the base Continental Supersport Convertible for a new total of 631 hp. This makes the Continental Supersports Ice Speed Record Convertible the most powerful Bentley ever.
