Just 710 units of this British mink-coated missile have been built worldwide and South Africa has secured 12 of them, selling at R4.4-million apiece.
The 710 refers to the car’s output in horsepower, which translates to 522kW in the metric system, and it’s applied to tarmac via all-wheel drive and sits atop air suspension.
The Supersports is pitched as the grandest of grand tourers and its appeal lies in the way it marries supercar performance with regal luxury.
Visual portrayal of the Supersport’s top-dog status in the Continental heirarchy include gloss-black bonnet vents, new front and rear bumpers with carbon fibre splitter and diffuser, and a rifled exhaust tail-pipe. The black wheels and black grille continue the sporting visual statement, as does a large boot spoiler.
