With Bentley looking to put more focus on the performance of its vehicles in the future, the snooty British brand certainly chose the right way to show off its latest product at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Supersports Convertible, the world’s fastest drop-top, tacked the exciting hillclimb event driven by none other than racing legend Derek Bell.

Judging from the photos, Bell certainly made the twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 overpower the Bentley’s AWD system. And why not, with 621-hp and 590 ft-lbs of torque available. Bentley claims the Supersports Convertible will hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph.

But enough about the stats, check out the exciting action in our gallery below.
