The Bentley Continental Supersports ‘Ice Speed Record’ Convertible will be limited to just 100 models and is powered by a 6-litre W12 engine boasting 630bhp – 9bhp more than the standard Supersports courtesy of some minor tuning.

Bentley claim the Ice Speed Record model is capable of 0-62mph in four seconds, 0-100mph in 9.4 seconds and a top speed of 202mph.

Cosmetically, the all-wheel drive Bentley gets new 20-inch wheels while the dark grey roof is semi-transparent.

It will be available in three colours: Beluga, Quartzite and Arctica White.

The model follows news of Finland’s four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen’s breaking the ice speed record two weeks ago on the frozen Baltic Sea.

Driving a biofuel-powered Bentley Continental, Kankkunen reached a top speed of 205.48 mph – beating his own ice speed record of 199.83 which he set in 2007 in the Continental GT.
