Wheelsandmore Bentley Continental Ultrasports 702: Clunky name, sinister car

Five-hundred-fifty horsepower is an awful lot of muscle. But when it's being produced by six liters of displacement, 12 cylinders and two turbochargers, you have to figure even more is possible. Bentley themselves knew this to be true, so they squeezed an extra 50 or so out of the Continental's enormous engine for the Speed version. But there was still more to be extracted, so they developed the Supersports model with over 620 horsepower.
Determined that there's still more to coax out of those colossal specs, German tuning house Wheelsandmore has just released its own tuning package for the Supersports that brings output up to 702 horsepower, with a commensurate bump to 650 lb-ft of torque (up from the standard 480, the Speed's 550 and the Supersports' 590) to create the Continental Ultrasports 702.
All they had to do to get the bonus 80 horses was tweak the ECU and fit a new exhaust. But true to their name, Wheelsandmore didn't stop there, fitting a set of 21-inch, 3-piece modular rims on Dunlop Sport Maxx tires, and an electronically adjustable suspension that drops the ride height to less than 8 inches off the ground at speed.
