A couple of weeks ago Bentley managed to break the ice speed world record by hitting a top speed of 205.48 mph (330.70 km/h), a record that was set by Juha Kankunen. In order to celebrate this important achievement, the automaker announced that it will roll out a special edition Supersports Ice Speed Record edition which will be unveiled this week at the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
