Bentley unveils new convertible

Bentley has announced the launch of a new model in its Continental GT range.

The new convertible version of the Supersports coupe is being marketed as the fastest soft-top the luxury carmaker has ever built.

The car is capable of reaching 0-60mph in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 202mph. It also features a 621bhp twin-turbocharged 12-cylinder engine.

Owners will also have the option of running their new Bentley on petrol or E85 as part of the company's bid to make all cars biofuel compatible by 2012.

The firm plans to roll-out FlexFuel across the whole 2011 Continental range - which will also feature improvements to the interior trim and an iPod connection.

It is thought the firm will release pricing information closer to the car's autumn launch.
