The Bentley Continental Supersports is one of the preeminent luxury cars to come out of the UK. Renntech is a Florida-based tuning company that specializes on performance programs for some of the most famous European sports cars in the world. And when British luxury meets American tuning prowess, the results can be downright impressive.
Renntech has come out with a new performance program for the Continental Supersports, one that includes a combination of an ECU remap and the addition of a new performance stainless steel exhaust system. As one of the foremost authorities in tuning Bosch and Siemans engine control units - the same one found on the Continental Supersports - Renntech was able offer significant improvements in the car’s performance and throttle response without sacrificing the Continental Supersport’s noted reliability.
In order to achieve their goal of ratcheting up the Bentley engine’s specs, Renntech modified the ignition timing and throttle mapping of the engine, optimized the air and fuel ratios, increased the engine’s rev limiter, and tweaked the boost mapping. The result is a 6.0-liter turbocharged W12 engine that saw its output increase from the standard 621 horsepower and 590 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 710 horsepower and 680 lb/ft of torque.
Noted for their works with Mercedes vehicles, Renntech is quickly proving that they can run the whole gamut of high-end performance cars, including the Bentley Continental Supersports.
