Bentley is teasing us with a lone picture of the biofuel burner it promises will be the
fastest, most powerful and cleanest car the company has ever built.
At the 2009 International Geneva Motor Show in March we will see the inauguration of a new Bentley supercar. The British car manufacturer has not provided any details as other vehicles that the mystery will run on bio-fuels and that it will be “the fastest and
most powerful production car.” For the record, the teaser press release that accompanied the release of coup seem to point to a car based on the Continental family – the cutting or sedan.
Judging by the fact that Bentley’s most powerful model is the Continental GT Speed with
600bhp and 750Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque expect the new concept to offer a slight
improvement over those numbers as well as a top speed greater than 202mph (326km/h)
and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of less than 4.3 seconds. The greatest change should
come in terms of reduced emissions and improved fuel economy, currently the GT Speed produces a hefty 396g/km of CO2 and has a combined cycle fuel rating of
17.0mpg (16.6 litres/100km).
For those who didnt have a chance to see it in Geneva, this car will also be displayed at
the New York Autosalon
