Overview

The Continental Supersports supercar sits at the top of the Continental line. It features a more muscular look than other Continentals thanks to a revised front bumper with large lower air intakes, special hood vents, a unique rear bumper and rear quarter panels and special smoked grille as well as other exterior trim. The coupe, like many of its supercar competition, comes in 2-seat configuration. In the rear, in place of where the rear seats would go in any other Continental, the Supersports coupe features a storage area with a carbon fiber luggage retaining beam. Rear seats are available as an extra option. Convertibles are outfitted with four seats as standard equipment.

That power runs through a 6-speed "Quickshift" automatic transmission that allows double downshifts and finally makes its way to the ground via Bentley's all-wheel drive system.
