    We just got this car back in on trade, it's pretty cool and I thought maybe the FerrariChat audience would appreciate it.

    As the title states, this is a 2018 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible, one of 710 Supersports produced and one of 250 designated for the US market. When it was released, this was the fastest four-seat convertible in the world, capable of achieving 205 MPH according to Bentley. Power comes from a 6.0L twin turbo W12, pushing out 700 HP and 750 lb-ft of torque, thanks to larger turbochargers, a revised intake system, upgraded intercoolers, and upgraded ECU software. Power is delivered to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission with column-mounted paddles. The exhaust crackles and pops on the overrun. Brake-based torque vectoring is used to help pull all 5400 lbs around corners, and it wears carbon ceramic brakes as standard. Zero to 60 MPH takes less than 4 seconds, and it'll clear the 1/4 mile in less than 12.

    Despite the suprisingly capable performance, the Supersports is still very much a Bentley, with hand stitching all over the interior and bespoke carbon fibre inlays in the dash and doors. The front seats are heated, ventilated, and massaging. It still rides on fully adjustable air suspension, making this an extremely capable and potent GT car.

    We sold this Onyx/St. James Red Pearl Supersports new in February 2018 to a local long-time customer of ours. He put just over 1,000 miles on it, and traded it in to our Porsche store for a Turbo S Cabriolet Exclusive Series. Having taken most of the depreciation hit from this car's original MSRP of $378k, this car now represents a strong value for dollar at the current asking price.

    We're asking $239,995. As always, this includes enclosed coast-to-coast shipping. The car has been gone over by our Bentley Master Tech, and is fully ready to go for its next owner.

    I hate to be that guy... but ask your photographer to stand up and take a picture... you really can't see the car

    We use a tripod so all of the photos are at a uniform height. Usually they aren't this low, I'm not sure why these turned out the way they did...

    I probably should have PM'd you instead of posting. Kind of a naggy thing to post. But I do think it would help as for me the photos just aren't attractive and I KNOW that car is beautiful!

    No worries at all. As usual, I'm happy to provide any additional photos or anything of the car that anyone would like to see. I'll snap a few more today and update the thread.

    Looks fine to me but I’m not a photography pedant.

    Is the hood and trunk paint or carbon fiber.
    Heck paint them both red to match the rest of the car and you got yourself an awesome Bentley

    They're painted Onyx - a metallic black.

    Was it specced with that combo from the factory? or was it painted after purchase? Same question for the interior.

    I like the interior. Not so much the outside. Somebody is going to love the combo.

    He posted a picture of the window sticker in the original post. Looks to be all specced from factory according to window sticker.

    I doubt it was originally sold for MSRP so the depreciation is not really as much as suggested.
    Mine had MSRP of $367k and I paid exactly a $100k less (it was a lease actually but that was the basis for Capital cost).
    Fabulous car indeed.

    This was an inappropriate comment on my part and I sincerely apologize. No excuses, but my comments were meant to be funny and were induced in part by extraneous influences of a liquid nature. The car in question obviously has much going for it and I in fact love red and black together.

    The duo-tone paint and interior are both factory original.

    I love this car so much. Do you ship to countries like Nigeria?

    We've had cars shipped to Nigeria before, but the buyer arranged all the transport. We'd be happy to figure something out.

    2020 bump! Allegedly, out of the 250 Supersports sent to the US, 99 were coupes, and the remaining 151 were convertibles. This car also boats a titanium exhaust system manufactured by Akrapovic for Bentley.
