In black and bright red livery, the 6.0 litre 12 cylinder Bentley Continental Supersports convertible, which set a new world record of 205.48mph on a 16.5km long ice track, took on the the Goodwood Hill Climb in front of Goodwood Festival of Speed visitors.

"Driving this very special Bentley Continental in front of the packed Goodwood grandstands was a special experience for me," Juha explained.

"Driving on a frozen sea was a unique challenge and only a few Bentley engineers and my support crew were there to witness the new world record. So it was a pleasure to provide a glimpse of the capabilities of this Bentley to a huge audience of motorsport enthusiasts on a beautiful summer's day."

Five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell joined Juha Kankunnen in a Bentley Continental GT. Derek has worked with Bentley for more than a decade as a professional driving consultant for the company's road car programme and was involved in the victory of Le Mans in 2003.

"Driving the GT at Goodwood was a lot of fun. The new car maintains all the luxury and refinement for which Bentley is renowned, but is even quicker, dynamically sharper and more powerful than its predecessor."
