With the days winding down until the Geneva Motor Show, more and more details are coming to the surface on the basket of delectable treats in store for us this year in Switzerland. The latest reports indicate that Bentley's new show car, a bio-fuel version of its Continental model, will pack an awesome 630 horsepower from its mulch-munching twin-turbo W12. That's a considerable 30 more horses than Bentley's current most powerful version, the Continental GT Speed, and the package promises to be enough to propel the renewable-fueled luxo-tank to sixty in four seconds flat.

Laughably, Crewe is also said to have removed the rear seats from the Extreme Bentley to save weight , which, when you consider the enormous heft of the Continental, isn't likely to make much of an impact. That said, we appreciate the gesture... and those 630 horses.

      True, I'd guess that there would be a negligible difference in performance and driving dynamics with the removal of the rear seats from the Extreme... but it reminds me of my old '67 Mustang I drove in high school (20 years ago). I had removed the rear seats to not only save the weight of the seats (not much, maybe 20-30 lbs) but to eliminate the possibility of the additional 300+ lbs of weight from friends trying to bum a ride. That is probably where the similarities end between my old '67 Mustang and the Extreme Bentley. Good memories though.

        Friends are hardly likely to fit into the back of that. Only small children would be able to squeeze in the back and come out alive. Whereas removing the two front seats means probably the removal of two 200-pound bankers.
