Smooth as Ice - Bentley Continental GT sets record



Four-times World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen, smashed the world ice speed record in March, reaching an average speed of 199.86mph (321.65km/h) on frozen sea off the coast of Finland. Cool.



What is even better is that he did it in his own actual Bentley Continental GT.



There were very slight modifications for a colder running petrol, some studded ice tyres, headlight covers which look very cool and smooth hub caps over the wheels.



'The Bentley performed impeccably,' said Kankkunen. 'I was amazed how stable and secure it felt at these high speeds, despite the track's rough and icy surface being scattered with powdery snow. I even managed to stop the car from its top speed within 600 metres.'



A true Bentley boy. I like it.
