There’s no better way to celebrate an ice speed record then by launching a new watch. And that’s exactly what Bentley has done, in honor of the new record set by Finland’s four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen, which was done in a Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible.

Partnering with the automaker’s timepiece partner Breitling, the Bentley Supersports Light Body limited edition timepiece sports a sporty titanium light body watch. A perfect complement to the Supersports convertible, the watch boasts  a light and sturdy titanium chassis, as well as a dashboard-style dial adorned by three ringed counters and a bezel with a Bentley-style raised knurled motif. Keeping time is its exclusive double-counter system that features a central minute hand and a twin-handed totalizer.

The ice speed record was set a few weeks ago, when Juha Kankkunen reached a speed of 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h). This new time broke his own ice speed record of 199.83 mph (321.6 km/h), which was set in 2007 when he was behind the wheel of the Continental GT.

Only 1,000 of the Bentley Supersports Light Body limited edition watches will be available for purchase.

    Hi Noreen,
    I couldn’t find information about the price and where it’s available for purchase, but I did find a number for sales information in the US: 1 800 777 6923. They will most likely be able to point you in the right direction.
