Introducing the most potent and radically-styled convertible ever to bear the famed winged B emblem.
On the 10th of February 2011, four kilometres from the coast of Finland on the frozen expanses of the Bay of Bothnia, a Continental Supersports Convertible, piloted by four-times World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen, broke the world record for the fastest car on ice.
Equipped with only minor modifications – a roll cage, winter tyres and minimal aerodynamic aids – Juha and Bentley took the Supersports Convertible to a remarkable 330.695km/h (205.48mph) averaged both ways over a measured kilometre. Powered by E85 bioethanol and driven by Kankkunen, even on ice the Supersports Convertible demonstrated why it is the most potent drop-top Bentley ever built.
To commemorate this extraordinary achievement, a strictly limited run of 100 production vehicles will be built. Directly influenced by the record breaking car and with unique feature content, The Continental Supersports Convertible ISR (Ice Speed Record) echoes the achievements of the record breaking car on ice. 631bhp. 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds. The most powerful Bentley ever produced.
