Bio-fueled 'Extreme Bentley' to debut at Geneva Motor Show
Bentley is preparing to show its first bio-fueled production model at the Geneva Motor Show. The company has also released a mini site and is touting this car as its fastest, most powerful model yet.
Bentley announced its plan to jump on the bio fuel bandwagon at the North American International Auto Show earlier this month. By 2012 the company says all of its models will feature “flexfuel” powertrains.
Little else is said about this brazen Bentley. From the teaser picture it appears to be based on the Continental GT or Flying Spur. The car gives off a sinister aura with hood vents, large air intakes with dark mesh grilles and dark trim around the beady little headlights.
The new model must make some serious power to take the place as the fastest, most powerful Bentley yet. Currently, the fastest model is the Continental GT Speed with 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. This new Bentley will have to do better than the GT Speed’s zero to 60 mph time of just over 4 seconds and its top speed of 202 mph. We’re expecting more details about the new model to emerge before its Geneva debut in March.
