Former WRC driver Juha Kankkunen managed to break the world record for speed on the ice at the wheel of a Bentley Continental Supersports Cabrio.

A copy of Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible managed to break the ice world speed record, reaching 330.7 km / h on a frozen lake in Finland.

At the steering wheel was former WRC driver Juha Kankkunen, the one who actually broke the old record, achieved 321.6 km / h in 2007 at the wheel of a Bentley Continental GT Coupe.

According to the four-time world rally champion, the car piloted by him reached the record-breaking speed after running five kilometers in a straight line.

“The last time, I narrowly missed the magical 200mph mark in a Continental GT,” said Kankkunen. “When I heard about the Supersports I was determined to go record breaking again. This time, with over 600bhp under the bonnet, a Quickshift transmission and the security of the all-wheel drive system, the Supersports convertible was the perfect car to go for the record.”

The Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible model that managed to enter The Guinness Book of Records was equipped with the series engine of British model, and E85 ethanol fuel was used, a mixture of 85% alcohol and 15% gasoline widely used in Nordic countries and more recently, the United States.
