Really, it was only a matter of time before spy photos of the Bentley Continental GTC Supersports made the rounds. After all, there was never any doubt that the German-owned maker of high-end luxury cars would eventually cut the top off its latest sportster -- in this case powered by the most powerful production version of the automaker's 6.0-liter W12 powerplant.

For those that like to keep track of such things, this would be the eighth derivative of the Continental platform – the others being the GT coupe, GTC cabrio, Flying Spur sedan, Speed versions of each and the Supersports coupe. If it does indeed see the light of day, expect the GTC Supersports to boast a similar weight reduction as the coupe (243 pounds, although it's sure to gain a few when the top comes off) along with carbon ceramic brakes and the deletion of the rear seats. Oh, and flex-fuel capability... at some point.
