Fastest Bentley Ever Will Run On Biofuel

Illustration for article titled Fastest Bentley Ever Will Run On Biofuel

Bentley will be using the 2009 Geneva Motor Show to debut a biofuel powered racer promised to be the fastest and most powerful production Bentley ever.

Details of this new, Continental-based vehicle are sparse with the company only releasing the teaser image above and promising the new car will be the fastest, most powerful production car ever from the luxury marque. For it to be the most powerful Bentley it'll have to best the Continental GT Speed, which means a top speed above 202 MPH and a 0-60 MPH time of less than 4.3 seconds. The GT Speed also puts out 600 HP and 553 lb-ft of torque, meaning the new vehicle will be in excess of those stats.


We have no word on what the biofuel will be, but we're going to assume an ethanol conversion for the company's existing twin-turbo W12 engine. We look forward to seeing the rest of the vehicle and trying to comprehend the massive power numbers when it bows in Geneva.
