On Tuesday, 1 March 2011, the new Continental Superports Convertible ISR was revealed at the Salon International l’Auto in Geneva. Only 100 of these radically-styled supercars are being built, and only a few are still available.
This exclusive car celebrates the achievements of four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen and his Continental Supersports Convertible, who together set a new world ice speed record on 10th February above the frozen waters of the Bay of Bothnia, Finland.
The all-wheel drive Supersports Convertible achieved a speed of 205.48mph (330.695 km/h) on a specially created 16.5km long track on the frozen Baltic Sea. This feat shattered Juha’s own record of 199.83 mph (321.6 km/h) set in 2007 in the Continental GT.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley Chairman and Chief Executive, said:
“Juha Kankkunen’s drive was a remarkable achievement and worthy of a very special car. The Continental Supersports Convertible ISR is a true driver’s car that captures that unique Bentley spirit. It offers extreme performance, agility and an extrovert personality, while retaining the refinement, handcrafted luxury and comfort our customers expect.”
