We've come to expect the ultimate in customization from Bentley. If you've got the scratch, the company will be more than happy to custom tailor its products to fit your tastes – right down to the color of your car's seat belts. It should come as no surprise, then, that the company is now allowing potential Continental Supersports Coupe buyers to order their cars with a back seat.
One of the coolest parts of the 612-horsepower coupe is the fact that, for its part, Bentley tried to trim the car's fat. Weight got ditched wherever possible, including the cabin. Those hefty, infinitely adjustable, heated, cooled and massaging front buckets were swapped for lightweight carbon fiber-backed units, and the two rear seats were scrapped all together. In their place? A sexy piece of carbon-fiber bracing. We like.
But evidently, Bentley buyers would prefer their two-door to have more seats. To help boost Continental Supersports Coupe sales, the company has decided to offer the back thrones as a stand alone option. Checking the box will put the standard front seats in, ditch the rear bracing and re-install the rears. There's no word on exactly how many pounds that will add to the car's waist line, but it can't do the coupe any favors. Boo to this.
