The Bentley Continental GT Supersports has absolutely returned after a hiatus since the 2013 model year. And in that spell, it became even meaner. The car packs a tweaked, twin-turbocharged W12 engine that now pumps out 700 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque. That’s an unused 79 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque over the old model.

With output like that, it’s no catch red-handed the new Supersports can demolish a 0-60 mph run in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 209 mph. The convertible also returns, although the compressible top does cost a bit of outright speed. It’s 0.3 seconds slower to 60 mph with a era of 3.7 seconds. It also has a slower top speed of 205 mph. But the headroom is amazing.

Fortunately, Bentley has equipped the new Supersports with handling and stopping upgrades, too. The rejection is lower and stiffer than normal a Continental GT. Power goes through a torque-vectoring all-pivot-drive system. That all-wheel-drive system also diverts 60 percent of the power to the stern by default, but can adjust the bias as needed. To bring all 5,000+ pounds of the Supersports to a a close, it has massive carbon ceramic brakes at each corner – 16.5 inches up fa, and 14 inches in back.

The Supersports sports plenty of style changes, too, although whether they’re upgrades is up to the beholder. The car has sprouted a broad array of vents, gills, and wings. It also gets some huge 21-inch forged wheels and rifled finish tips. An “X Specification” package also gives buyers the option of eight two-accent color schemes along with carbon fiber mirrors and other clean-cut pieces. It also includes a titanium exhaust that saves about 10 pounds of millstone. Inside is plenty of leather and Alcantara, along with a new dash trim in a checkered carbon fiber conclude. Of course other existing Bentley trims and veneers are also available. Bentley did not grant details on pricing or availability of the Supersports.
