And that, surely, is where the Bentley comes in. Time to 'fess up: although the SS is 110kg lighter than standard, the fat-fighting intro is a bit of a red herring. The Supersports makeover actually goes way further than stripping out weight, and is as clever a reworking of an existing car as I've experienced in a long time. Around 42,000 Contis have been sold since 2003, so its power to shock has pretty much evaporated. The Supersports restores that and then some.
