2017 Bentley Continental Supersports: 209 MPH


The 2017 Bentley Continental Supersports

This year, the massive Bentley Continental Supersports claimed the title of fastest four-seat car in the world with a top speed of 209 mph, besting even dedicated sports cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 (199 mph) and the Audi R8 V10 Plus (205 mph). Despite a curb weight over 5,000 pounds, the plush, opulent living-room-on-wheels is properly motivated by Bentley’s stalwart, 6.0-liter twin-turbo W-12 engine producing a whopping 700 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque. And you get the sort of niceties for which the ultra-luxury brand is known, like a NAIM sound system, high-touch chrome and aluminum brightware, acres of leather and wood, and cabin silence befitting a meditation retreat. Plus, because it’s not only the fastest four-seat car, but the fastest road-going Bentley ever, you’ll find carbon-fiber bits everywhere from the side mirrors to the front splitter to the optional engine cover. If you want to fly by the 200-mph mark with three friends in tow, this is the only car on this list that can take you there.
