Bentley Motors, part of the Volkswagen Group has just announced the release of the Bentley Continental Supersports -- a car that they're calling, "the fastest and most powerful Bentley ever." That says a lot when you're talking about a company that has a 90-year history...a history that includes a long list of Grand Touring cars, ultra luxury cars and several outright race cars.
In the early part of the 20th century, Bentley cars were known for their speed and superior performance. Of course, they remain just as strong today, but they're typically better known as symbols of style and elegance.
The new Continental Supersports model is said to offer prospective buyers 621 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque from a 6-liter, twin-turbocharged, W12 engine that rockets the 4,939-pound car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, according to the Bentley Motors press release.
