Long Island New Luxury Cars | NYC Bentley Dealership
Imagine a sophisticated and elite vehicle accelerating past at 209 miles per hour! With a first-look from cars.com, we are sharing a preview of our newest member of the Bentley collection, the 2017 Bentley Continental Supersports.
In January, the new model rang in the new year making its debut in Detroit, at the 2017 North American international Auto Show, and is expected to be seen at dealerships this May. Per cars.com, this elite vehicle is said to be the fastest, most powerful Bentley ever. With a zero-to-60-mph in about 3.4 seconds.
The Continental Supersports convertible compares in power with a zero-to-60 mph in 3.7 seconds at a ramped 205 mph. Bentley affirms the convertible top insulates passengers from outside sound and the elements. While the luxury of the neck warmer feature allows for top-down driving even in cooler climates.
Both the coupe and convertible are powered by the turbocharged 6.0-liter 12- cylinder paired accordingly with an eight-speed automatic transmission, responsible for the impressive momentum making 700-horsepower and 750 lb.-ft. of torque.
In a statement Bentley explains, “In order to rein in this immense performance the new Supersports is fitted with high-performance carbon-ceramic brakes with enhanced cooling.” Continuing with, “The brake discs are the largest of their type in the world, providing excellent performance with minimal fade under extreme conditions.”
The automaker continues by explaining its power is accompanied by nimble handling compliments of the specially calibrated torque vectoring system. Emphasizing that the driving dynamics do not come at the expense of a luxurious ride. Instead, the fuel economy is the only expense with a 12/26/18 mpg city/highway/combined for the coupe and 12/26/18 mpg for the convertible.
As far as design elements go, the Bentley stays true to its current Continental GT. The difference is seen in a few aspects: chiseled front and rear bumper designs integrating a carbon-fiber splitter and diffuser, new side sill extensions and bonnet vents with carbon fiber finishing, gloss-black front wing vents and a new gloss-black and rifled tailpipe, dark tinted headlights and taillights, and black-finished elements on front grilles, lights, rear bumper, door handles and window surroundings.
Options for a spoiler and front splitter combo on the coupe, Supersports badging, black-and-bright-machined-finished 21-inch forged alloy wheels, and side decals are available. Including, optional gloss-finished, branded carbon-fiber engine cover and optional titanium exhaust.
Inside you will receive the same luxuries you would expect from Bentley. A design specific to the model with a tri-tone color scheme, diamond-quilted detailing in the Alcantara-leather-covered seats and door panels, Supersports emblem stitching with similar branded sport steering wheel and model-specific shifter, both wrapped in Alcantara.
