Unsurprisingly, Bentley is launching a Continental GT Supersports. It's also unsurprising that it will be more powerful and lighter than its softer sibling. Despite the fact that there's nothing that caught us off guard about this particular bit of news, that doesn't make it any less exciting. This car is going to be sweet.

The W12 engine in the Supersports will pull as hard as 650 horses, and it won't have as much to pull either. Exterior panels will be carbon fiber, and the interior will be stripped out as well. Expect more alcantara than leather and a parcel shelf in place of the rear seats come next year's Geneva Motor Show.
