New Car: 2011 Bentley Continental Supersport ISR

Bentley has released its most powerful car ever, the Continental Supersports Convertible ISR (Ice Speed Record). The car was built to celebrate the Supersports convertible breaking the world ice speed record in February with a speed of 205.48mph in the hands of four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen.

Limited to just 100 cars worldwide, the new ISR pumps out 631bhp and 800Nm from its six litre twin-turbo W12 engine, which helps it sprint to 62mph in 4.0 seconds and on to 100mph in 9.5 seconds. Four-wheel drive, 420mm carbon ceramic front discs and eight piston calipers provide grip and stopping muscle to match the power. A new exhaust provides a rortier exhaust note under acceleration.

Differentiating the ISR from the standard car is a dark grey ‘metallic look’ soft top and 20-inch dark tinted alloy wheels. The four seat interior is livened up with generous helpings of leather, diamond-quilted alcantara and red-weaved high-gloss carbon fibre, while red piping and stitching has been added to the seats, doors, steering wheel and gearshift panels. The car’s infotainment system includes a 30GB hard drive and eight-inch touchscreen which controls the car’s audio system, telephone, suspension settings and sat nav.

Bentley is also offering a Mulliner design package for more extroverted styling which includes bright red alloy wheels with a diamond turned metallic finish, red accented bonnet vents and a set of bold “Supersports ISR” graphics along the car’s flanks.

Despite the performance the ISR can run on petrol, E85 (bio-ethanol) or any combination of the two. This offers a potential reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 70% between fuel being mined and being burnt in the engine.

The ISR is available to order now at Bentley dealerships, priced at £189,300. For more details click here.
