28 January 2009

Bentley will launch what it calls its "fastest, most powerful production car ever" at the Geneva motor show in March, the company has announced.

The "extreme Bentley", revealed in this official teaser shot, is based on the Continental GT and is and is said to deliver "supercar performance".

It runs on bio-ethanol and is the first part of Bentley's drive to become a leader in using biofuels in the luxury market. Bentley engineers are also working on making the Arnage's venerable 6.75-litre V8 run on ethanol.
