The current Bentley Continental Supersports was released in 2009 and for the 2014 model year Bentley is working on a new high-performance flagship coupe, according to sources from Bentley. The new model will be placed between the current GT Speed that delivers a total of 616 horsepower and the upcoming road-goingContinental GT3 rumored to deliver a total of 675 horsepower.
The new Continental Supersports will feature carbon-fiber panels, stiffer suspension and a twin-turbo W-12 engine that will deliver around 650 horsepower. As you can see, the output will represent a modest increase of just 30 horsepower over the GT Speed model, but Bentley officials confirm that "Supersports wouldn’t be all about pure power."
The company will also focus on reducing the car’s total weight, revising the chassis settings and improving braking power. Rumors suggest that in order to reduce the car’s weight Bentley could also drop the rear seats, while the front ones will be made in lightweight composites.
