Bentley Motors has announced that its FlexFuel technology, pioneered on the Continental Supersports Coupe in 2009, now extends across the complete 2011 Continental range. This includes the new Continental Supersports Convertible, the fastest 4 seat production convertible ever. The W12 6-litre power unit now has the technology to run on petrol, E85 bioethanol or any mix of these two fuels, all from a single tank.
This advance will ensure Bentley customers can take advantage of the recent expansion of renewable fuel infrastructure and thus help reduce dependency on fossil fuels and give immediate benefits in terms of CO2 emissions.
Bentley Chairman & CEO, Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen, said: “When we launched our environmental strategy in Geneva two years ago, it was a clear pledge to reduce the impact of our cars on the environment. This latest development is proof of our commitment and is a significant step towards the achievement of our 2012 targets.”
