FlexFuel technology becomes standard on all models of the 2011 Continental, Bentley reaffirming ongoing environmental commitment to make all its cars by 2012 biofuels compatible
(. March 31, 2010 New York, NY USA) Bentley Motors is introducing its fastest, most powerful ever drop-top – the new 2011 Continental Convertible Supersports – during New York Motor Show earlier this week. The latest addition to the Continental model range features a 621 horsepower, twin-turbo W12 engine that is capable of running on both gasoline and E85 ethanol, making it powerful and environmentally conscious.
The new muscle Supersports four-seat convertible will be sold from $ 280,400, Bentley when it arrives in stores this summer. Bentley unequivocally in its design and craftsmanship, the interior represents a dramatic re-interpretation of luxury Bentley. glossy carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara ™ “Soft Grip” create a unique atmosphere, with a distinctly sporty and contemporary style.
The entire range of Continental models 2011, including the new Convertible Supersports will be able to run on both gasoline and E85 ethanol or any combination thereof, reaffirming the continued commitment of Bentley to make all their cars compatible biofuel in 2012. Pioneer Coupe Supersports, this technology offers a FlexFuel reduction of up to 70 percent of CO2 emissions on a well-to-wheel ‘basis, a measure of the net contribution of a fuel into the atmosphere, not only emissions of greenhouse escape.
“The new Supersports Convertible is the most powerful drop-top we’ve ever produced,” said Christophe Georges, president and COO of Bentley Motors, Inc. “It combines extreme power with FlexFuel technology pioneer, now shared with all Continental models , reflecting the continued commitment of Bentley motoring more environmentally friendly

The Continental Convertible Supersports
The new Supersports Continental Convertible is a car that should be conducted to understand. Behind the wheel, it is clear that a Bentley Supersports is a “fusion of extremes” – the ultimate in extreme performance, everyday practicality and luxury unparalleled craftsmanship.
Bentley Supersports program began as an ‘under the radar “project exploring the possibilities of weight reduction on the Continental GT coupé, but with more power and torque. The experimental design largely crystallized into a short program new official car, moved passion and enthusiasm of a small group of engineers and designers in Bentley. Now, the Supersports Convertible received the same focus and the results are equally dramatic.
“Stability” extreme “Bentley now has a new occupant in the form of Convertible Supersports,” said Dr. Ulrich Eichhorn, member of the Board, Engineering. “It is intentional and a car as powerful as the Coupé, but with the pride of the roof down motoring.”
FlexFuel technology introduced on all 2011 models Continental
FlexFuel technology, pioneered in the Supersports Continental Coupe in 2009, is now extended to the whole range of Continental in 2011, including new Supersports Convertible. The power unit 6 liter W12 now has the technology for gasoline, E85 ethanol or any mixture of the two fuels – all from a single tank.
The bioethanol is blended with gasoline in a variety of percentages ranging from E10 (10 percent ethanol) to the best known, E85, a ratio of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline to ensure the ability to start cold.
Bioethanol has other unique engineering challenges compared to gasoline, due to its chemical composition and characteristics. biofuel E85 has a very high octane rating of 105, but a lower energy content that requires a 30 percent increase in the rate of flow of motor fuel.
This required a complete overhaul of the fuel system to identify and, if necessary, replacement of components deemed strong enough for the properties of ethanol.
Increased fuel flow is obtained through a non-return fuel system, twin bombs variable fuel flow and a new closed circuit design with fuel rail pressure sensor. For all the fuel system o-rings, seals, gaskets and tubes are new and the new valve materials and coatings hardened valve seat provide an additional lubrication. New spark plugs with a wider range of combustion heat to allow slower.
A sensor in the fuel supply system detects the proportion of the mix in real time, and changes the engine mapping to ensure the power, torque and emission levels remain the same regardless of the fuel used.
FlexFuel offers the possibility of a reduction of up to 70 percent in net CO2 emissions on a ‘well to wheel “basis, calculated by adding the CO2 emitted during the process of extracting and refining (” good “) with the CO2 released when fuel is burned during motoring (the “wheel”).
Biofuels can be obtained from sugar cane or soybeans, or “second generation” sources such as agricultural residues and forest residues. As biofuels are not derived from fossil fuels, the CO2 released during combustion is reabsorbed by plants during photosynthesis, creating a cycle of continuous power.
