Full on sick

Bentley says its new Continental Supersports convertible is the fastest four-seat open-top in the world. The new Continental Supersports convertible is the fastest drop-top ever built by the British supercar maker, covering the 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 325km/h. The blistering performance comes from a twin-turbocharged W12 engine that pumps out 463kW of power and 800Nm of torque, overcoming the luxury drop-top’s hefty 2.4-tonne kerb weight. ( struth…).Bentley says the car’s fuel-supply system can detect the blend of fuel in the tank and adjust the engine mapping to ensure maximum power and torque regardless of the petrol-ethanol mix. ( and if you have any Crystal left over you can pour that in too………..) Other modifications include stiffer settings for the car’s continuous damping control system and a 50mm wider distance between the rear wheels to improve grip and stability. Carbon ceramic brakes and black callipers come standard with the 20-inch wheels.( I am getting stiffer for sure……) Bentley says the aggressive front end design is as much about function as it is about form; the big centre intake and vertical grilles on either side of the bumper feed air into the turbocharger intercoolers while the bonnet vents draw hot air away from the engine bay.( who cares what it all does. It looks dope !) The Bentley’s three-layer fabric roof is insulated and can be ordered in eight different colours, while inside, the cabin is dominated by soft-touch leather on the massaging seats, carbon fibre inserts and diamond-quilted Alcantara suede. ( I’ll take the roof in Alligator skin and the massage seats on FULL THROB ).Options include veneered picnic tables with vanity mirrors for the rear seats, a jewelled alloy fuel filler cap and lambswool rugs. ( How cosy…) Australian deliveries will start in October or November and prices will start from $531,000, excluding on-road costs.( I’ll take one in Arctic white……)
