Bentley competes in the new year with its fastest car ever: the Continental Supersports. Jon Simons, Bentley’s head of Products for America, highlights a few of the glamorous functions in the brand-new car.
“This is the most extreme Bentley ever– the fastest and most powerful vehicle which we have ever produced. And it even has a top speed of 209 miles an hour,” Simons informed the FOX Business Network.
Simons explained the common Bentley purchasers as “company elite, business owners; these are consumers that purchase their automobile as a statement of self-reward.”
A Bentley Continental Supersports does not come inexpensive however, with the convertible variation beginning at $322,600.
Besides the high cost, it might be difficult to get one because of the limited supply and high demand.
“This is an extremely special car, we’re just bringing 250 to the North America. Simply from the launch last week, our dealerships are informing us that around 10% of those cars have already been considered in regards to deposits, so there is an incredibly high need for the vehicle.”
However, according to Simons, regardless of the limited quantity making it to North America, the U.S. is the automaker’s largest market.
“We have a really wide demographic for this vehicle. I mean, America is our biggest market, so we have majority of these cars coming to America than other markets.”
