Biofuel Bentley Breaks Ice Speed Record

first_imgA Bentley has just broken the world ice speed record. And it did it running on biofuel.The car managed to reach a speed of 202 miles per hour while racing across the frozen ice, topping the previous record of 199.83 mph. Both records were held by legendary rally driver Juha Kankkunen.The car itself is a Bentley Continental Supersports convertible, which has been limited to tiny production run of just 100. It features a 6-litre, twin turbo-charged W12 engine that produces 640 PS, making it Bentley’s most powerful car yet. It’s also powered by E85 bio-ethanol, though the car can also run on gasoline, or a combination of the two fuel sources. According to Bentley, the fuel system offers a “reduction of up to 70 percent in CO2 emissions on a well-to-wheel basis.”last_img
