Only 100 examples of the new limited edition model will be built, each offering extreme performance, agility and an extrovert personality, as well as handcrafted luxury.
The ISR cars are distinguished by three unique exterior colors--Beluga, Quartzite and Arctica White--and a Dark Grey Metallic convertible soft-top. The unique appearance of the soft top is created in the outer layer by a gray acrylic fiber with a semi-transparent metallic look in a twill weave construction.The cars also sport 20-inch wheels with a dark tint finish, diamond-quilted Alcantara trim for the door innards, quarter panels and seat facings, as well as soft-grip leather on the steering wheel and gear lever.

The theme continues with red piping on the seats and doors, and contrast stitching also on the seats, door casings, steering wheel and gearshift paddles.
The front seats and floor mats also feature an embroidered ‘Supersports’ logo while the signature Breitling dashboard clock also has a red accent.
Under the hood is Bentley’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine outputting 631 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque and paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to standard all-wheel drive, the big bruiser will accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and pass the 100 mph mark in 9.5 seconds--true supercar performance.
Note that this highly tuned powerplant can run on either gasoline or E85 biofuel. This FlexFuel technology offers a reduction of up to 70 percent in CO2 emissions on a well-to-wheel basis, a measure of a fuel’s net contribution to the atmosphere, not just tailpipe emissions.
Both the new Continental Supersports Convertible ISR and Juha’s record-breaking version are on display on the Bentley stand at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show this week. For our full coverage of the event, click here.
