 Pros The 2012 Bentley Continental Supersports offers staggering performance, but it comes at a very high price.

 Pros The 621 horsepower engine turn a 5,000 pound car into a startling performer with overtones of luxury.

 Pros Despite the ridiculous power, the ZF 6-speed transmission shifts extraordinarily smoothly.

 Pros All wheel drive, electronic stability control, custom fitted seats, air bags, and a solid construction make the Bentley Continental Supersports respectably safe in the event of a collision.

 Pros Despite being a sports coupe, the Supersports offers a respectable 13.1 cubic feet of storage space.

 Pros The "fun killing understeer" which Car and Driver reviewers complained of on the GT model has been remedied. The Supersports steering is no more at the mercy of the traction control system.

 Pros The infotainment system is much improved from previous models.

 Cons The 2012 Bentley Continental Supersports has amazing handling, but even that can't mask that it is truly a tremendous car.

 Cons This Bentley is equipped with manually operated seats, a feature that does not belong in any luxury car. The seats can be custom fitted, but that can limit the number of people able to drive the car.

 Cons The handling is not typical of Bentley. Buyers should not expect the same level of comfort, no matter what suspension setting is selected.

 Cons Even with the flex fuel system, fuel economy is terrible, though potential buyers are likely not concerned.
