A look at the 700-hp Bentley's most impressive numbers
It turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. For proof, just look at the Bentley Continental Supersports, a big two-door that rides on a 13-year-old platform but continues to impress with its performance numbers. Performance isn’t all this 700-hp luxury cruiser has to offer, though. Check out the numbers below to see a few other notable metrics.
SUPERSPORTS BY THE NUMBERS
7.2 – The time, in seconds, it takes the Bentley Continental Supersports Coupe to accelerate from a standing start to 100 mph (161 km/h).
13.2 – The weight saving, in pounds (21.2 kg), on each front wheel, thanks to the standard carbon-ceramic brake rotors.
14.8 – The volume of air, in cubic feet, consumed every second by the W-12 producing peak power.
17 – The number of standard leather colors available.
30 – The storage capacity, in gigabytes, of the Naim audio infotainment system.
134 – The volume of air, in cubic feet, flowing through the Supersports radiator every second at 209 mph (336 km/h).
1,832 – The temperature, in degrees Farenheit, the carbon-ceramic brake rotors can withstand.
2,500 – The number of revolutions per second the W-12 engine’s new turbochargers spin to produce 750 lb-ft of torque.
8,000 – The force, in Newtons, the 21-inch forged alloy wheels can withstand, the equivalent of lifting a small car.
12,000 – The number of individual strands of carbon fiber in every square of the checkered carbon fiber trim panels.
