Bentley Revs Up Continental Supersports

British super-lux car brand Bentley is launching its fastest and most powerful car to date. And lest you think it's unethical to drive one and own a Gulfstream at the same time, Bentley insists it's also green. Well, green lite anyway.

The Continental Supersports, a two-seater, is the first Bentley that can run both on gasoline and biofuel, per the company.

Bentley says the new coupe is the first salvo in its efforts to make all of its cars renewable-fuels compatible by 2012. The 621-hp car, with a 12-cyclinder engine, goes 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and hits the peg at 204 mph.--Karl Greenberg
