The 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible is the soft-top sibling the marque's latest coupe, packing the same twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 as the hard-top and putting out 621 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Also like the fixed roof variant, the Supersports Convertible can run on either gasoline or E85, returning a 0-60 mph run of 3.9 seconds and a top speed on 202 mph no matter what you choose to top up with.

However, unlike the hard-top, the rear seats remain, along with carbon fiber seats and matching trim, Alcantara and a host of interior amenities.
